Last Minute Trip to D.C. - Need Suggestions for Tours

I was notified last night that I'm approved for a White House tour next week. This is very last minute, but while there I am interested in seeing other of the major sites (Capitol, Memorials, etc).

Does anyone have any suggestions for good tours that can be booked rather easily? Also, which tours are the highest recommended?

Thanks In Advance!

By all means see if your Representative or Senator can get you a tour of the Capitol. Alternatively, you can arrange a Capitol tour online at http://visitthecapitol.gov/.

Other tours that take requests or sell tickets online are the Holocaust Museum, the Spy Museum, the Newseum, the Washington Monument, and I'm sure there are others that I can't think of off the top of my head.

You might also want to consider the Smithsonian Museums (www.si.edu), the Library of Congress (www.loc.gov), and the Supreme Court Building (www.supremecourtus.gov/visiting/visiting.html).

Let us know if there are other specific activities you are interested in. Many of us can provide you further guidance.
