“Tour felt like a cattle roundup”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Don't waste your time on a tour while the rotunda and statuary hall are being remodeled. The tour consists of a movie and being literary herded from room to room with no guide explaining anything. We left about 1/4 into the roundup

“Book a Capitol Tour Before You Get Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Contact your congress person and schedule a Capitol tour before you go and you'll be glad you did. You'll get a personalized tour by a Capitol Hill staffer that's much better than lining up with the crowds in the visitor center. The Capitol is spectacular. (The dome is closed for renovations)
