Join an expert, local guide as you explore Capitol Hill inside and out.  Don't just view the buildings from the outside, take the tour and venture inside the following:
  • U.S. Capitol Building
  • The U.S. Supreme Court
  • The Library of Congress
  • The Folger Shakespeare Museum and Theater

Meet your guide at 9:00 am at the Neptune Fountain outside the Library of Congress and make your way inside the U.S. Capitol for reserved entry for a guided tour of the Legislative branch of the U.S. Government. 

Then continue across to the Library of Congress Jefferson Building where you will see part of Thomas Jefferson's original collection of over 6,000 books he sold to Congress to replace those burned in the War of 1812, view the main reading room, a Gutenburg Bible and marvel over the stunning architecture work.

From there, visit the U.S. Supreme, the Judicial branch of the U.S. Government, and tour the building where cases that changed history were heard and settled.

Afterwards, get an exclusive tour of the Folger Shakespeare Museum and Theater featuring the largest collection of Shakespeare first folios in the world. Step back in time as you view some of Shakespeare's original writing, the Grand Hall, special exhibits, and tour the Folger Theater.
Tour concludes at the Eastern Market.

We really enjoyed this tour. First time to DC in over 20 years for my wife and I. Next time, we will do this during the week (more buildings are accessible). We walk faster than most and that paid off in getting from place to...More

Great Tour!

Liam, our tour guide, was great. He was very knowledgeable and personable. Although we had visited some of these sites in the past, we learned a lot from him that we would not have otherwise know. We would definitely recommend.

Wonderful tour guide!

Our tour guide, Liam, was fantastic! I highly recommend this small group tour. Liam is a wealth of knowledge and his love for DC and all things "history" were very evident.
