We did a tour and it was totally worth it. There is a tunnel between the capitol and the library with shorter security for the capitol. The Supreme Court is also worth a visit and only foot steps away

Enjoyed a wonderful walking tour of Old Town Alexandria with Terri and Diane. Only suggestion is to hold up a sign for Meet Up as well as Adventures for Creative Tourists.

The tour guide was friendly and knows a lot about the sites we visited. She also was very considerate and polite, and I could tell that she enjoys her work. This is my second tour with this company, and I will definitely use them again...More

This tour was a total scam. The guide knew nothing about the Capitol that was not easily obtained from reading the Capitol visitors' brochure. He meandered the 6 of us around the Capitol, barely spoke, no appreciable dialogue at all, and at the end was...More

This really was a sad day to realize that a professional tour guide that was entrusted with a group could do such a lousy job. He was trained to do another tour not the one that he gave. Consequently all attendees have been refunded. Robert...More

Thank you for your feedback. We will talk to your tour guide, and tell her to step up her game. We have revamped the entire tour so that it manages client's expectations, and doesn't attract individuals that expect to walk through Paul Ryan's Office.

Hi Lori, There is no expressed entry into the capitol unless you are staff. Everyone has to go through security. The line isn't long and goes very quickly.
