Totally kidding about the wall, but they are building a bigger fence. Not sure how long it's going to take, but they had barricades up, so you weren't able to go up as close as you would normally. The White House is absolutely stunning though....More

The White House was definitely not what I wanted in expectations. It looks beautiful yes, but fenced and covered front due to remodeling the grounds. There seemed to be a huge secret service and police presence, more than one would expect. Of course, I was...More

We had an early tour time of 9 am. Expect security checks (4) and body/bag checks. You can take your cell phone in for photos but no recordings. A lot of changes since I last visited in 1983. Back then there was a tour guide...More

We were on sit down scooters for this tour that we reserved through our congressman. No walk up tours reservation only. Beautiful and great staff. Plenty of security.

It would be five stars if the cheeto puff wasn't there, but overall great trip! Oh and the McDonald's was ok.

We were not able to get on a tour of the inside of the White House, but were able to view the building and south lawn through the fence. The original building, constructed largely by enslaved Africans, has been added on to and renovated through...More

Any visit to DC would be incomplete without a visit to the White House. You can always snap a few photos from outside, but visiting inside requires some advance planning. You need to contact your Congressman at least 21 days in advance and as much...More

Contact your Congressman. They will have a person who handles the requests for a tour. You need to do it as soon as you can, 90 days prior to your visit. There are limited spots and they fill up quickly.
