We walked around the Capital and it was amazing. A lot larger than I thought it was. We took the tour and saw some really awesome things. It is a must see when you visit DC.

Great to see the place where our representatives work (supposedly) for us. Seeing the names on the doors of those people we worked hard to elect is thrilling.

We contacted our representative and were able to get a private tour of the capitol. It was busy, but we enjoyed the tour. They have a cafeteria which is nothing to write home about.

A very impressive historic place on the rise of the US government, you must determine in advance a tour and the tours are very interesting with close guidance and explanations about the historic rooms.

On our trip to Washington DC, although we did not go into the Capitol, just to stand outside of it, was awesome! To know that this is where the business of the country is conducted, was overwhelming. On our next trip, we are going to...More

When you walk around this historic site that houses the Capital and the offices of the Senate and House, it is like brushing up against current events while being reminded of history. An unforgetable place!
