Washington DC: American Politics & Debate on Capitol Hill Tour

    What to Expect
    Make your way to a central location in Capitol Hill to meet a guide and small group for a 2-hour intro to the heart of America's capital city. 

    You’ll pass key DC landmarks on an engaging route, but the guide will also offer a chance to jump into the debate about American history and politics (bring your opinions, and come ready for an easy-going, friendly discussion).

    Take in the US Capitol Building, the Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress, then head up one of the most historic streets in the city. You’ll also take in the outdoor Eastern Market, the Old Navy Hospital, and the Marine Barracks, the oldest post of the United States Marine Corps. See where Washington, DC movers and shakers get together outside the office, and learn about the changes that the neighborhood and city have undergone through the years.

    Finish the tour in Barrack’s Row, the city’s oldest commercial district, where you’ll duck into a local bar to keep the conversation going over drinks.

    Had a great tour with Montie. There were only 2 of us on the tour and neither of us were from the US. He answered all our, sometimes very simple, questions and more. He was extremely knowledgable and also very personable. Great tour, would definitely recommend.
