We unfortunately didn't get to see the Capitol inside but we did go there for the 4th of July Concert and to watch the fireworks. It was very nice and beautiful to see. (I do have to say that due to VIP seating if we...More

The tour was good. It was busy and if you are really a history buff well worth the time. However, this is not always our cup of tea and we did not get to meet our representative which was disappointing.

We didn't actually go in the building but from the outside you can't help but be impressed. Great opportunity for some great photos!

It's fantastic, yet the experience of visiting is weakened by the fact that the only way to see it is with "big box tours." The tours are "canned," and designed in a one-size-fits-all model. Sad.

You spent a whole day here. This is a place for you to take your children for a history lesson without them realizing it.

One may think they are simply walking the halls of Congress but there is so much more to see as you explore. The art, the history, the stories that shape our great nation. Definitely plan time to take it all in.

I was unable to reserve a tour online but when we got there, it was only a 5-minute line to get on a tour. There is no way to describe the feeling one gets standing under the dome. It is so much bigger, grander and...More

The tour guides are great at keeping things interesting and moving. Very informative tour. The architecture is truly beautiful. The building is very impressive. The cafe has large variety of freshly made food at decent prices. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Capitol Hill.
