Great overview
Jazz89, Mar 2020
we toured the outside and inside three of the most important buildings in DC: Capitol Building, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Donna the guide provided very clear history and function of each of these institutions, with great story telling. Its a great overview if you want to have an idea about these buildings in a single tour.
Best tour we did in DC

Wow! Donna was amazing! She had tons of energy, and so much knowledge about what we were visiting. Honestly we could have followed her around all day! Highly recommend!

WILLIAM_B, Nov 2019
Our guide, Richard Robinson III was the best, His knowledge and ability to navigate the labyrinths of the Capital Center were greatly appreciated by our group. As an added treat he took the group to visit the Folger Shakespeare Library, not to be missed if you are a fan of Shakespeare fan!
A DC getaway.

Very knowledgeable guide who pointed out details I had missed on prior trips to DC. Due to a Supreme Court event the guide rearranged the tour for maximum learning. Viewing the Senate Chambers was a highlight.
VERY Knowledgable

Capitol Walking Tour

Very informative tour. We had Bess as our tour guide and she was enthusiastic about several things and gave us lots of information about the history of the Library of Congress Building, Supreme Court Building, and Capitol Building. All of the buildings were beautiful and well worth the entire tour. It's a must see attraction if you are in Washington DC for vacation.

Our tour guide was super knowledgeable, enthusiastic, polite, and very nice. I got to learn quite a bit and the tour went by very smoothly. Thank you.

Eu recomendo essa visita privada. O guia fez seu melhor: visitamos a Suprema Corte com sua história, O Congresso americano, inclusive o plenário da Câmara dos Deputados, passamos por um túnel que nos levou á Biblioteca do Congresso, tudo com explicação histórica. A visita foi além do esperado.E de quebra visitamos a Biblioteca de Shakespeare. Foi uma visita maravilhosa.
