Absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and gave us so many insights on what goes on behind the scenes. I am a US History teacher for 8th grade. Our tour guide gave me so much to take back to the classroom. Thank you!

You get a behind the looks working of the Capitol, the tunnels, the Supreme court and the library. Being a small group gives you a more hands on approach to seeing things and asking questions. Be sure to book in advance. We had 6 in our group.

Great tour!
I really enjoyed this tour. Liam was my guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable about all the sites that we visited. He very patiently answered my many questions. This tour is a very good introduction to the buildings on capitol hill. It’s going to make it more manageable to come back for a more in depth visit. I highly recommend this tour!

Liam was a great tour guide. Very informative. We learned a lot and would recommend to anyone. You will start at the Library of Congress, Go through the Folgers Shakespeare building and end up at the Capital where Liam ends the tour and you receive tickets to tour 3 rooms of the Capital. Small group, easy walk, some stairs, and easy to hear.

We were very pleased with this tour! Liam, our guide, was exceptional; very well-informed and interesting! We were sorry that he was not our Capitol Building guide! Would like to see the tour include a visit to the Supreme Court room to eliminate
a wait in the line.

Excellent tour!
Aug 2019
Liam was great! He was full of interesting information that he relayed to our small group. We only had six people with us for our tour session which gave us plenty of opportunity to talk with him and ask questions. We did not feel rushed. The Library of Congress is beautiful and amazing to see, and it was very cool to visit and learn more about the Supreme Court. The Folger Shakespeare Library visit was very special as well - we were able to sit in briefly on a play rehearsal there. The Capitol building visit went smoothly. We were given our tickets and clear instructions on where to go for that tour. My family really enjoyed the whole tour session- especially the part led by Liam. It is a great tour for adults and teens. We definitely recommend it!
