We had been told to do the tour of Capitol Hill as it was worth seeing. When we found the enterance, which is at the front, but that is actually the side that faces away from the memorial. We entered straight away was directed to the queue for tour tickets and within minutes was in a group with a great guide. The tour takes in the rotunda, the statue room and the other spaces. Really intetesting history. Our guide was great and very interesting.

We took a walking tour in the Capitol Hill . We took the tour eWorld where our tour guide Andy and Alan explained everything in detail. Inside the building it's quite interesting. Security check is tight. Good to see once. There is a souvenir shop is the end of the tour. Good experience for once. July is very hot month, apply ur sunscreen . Found it very difficult to take photos bcos of the hot sun. Unpredictable sometimes it may rain too.

I arrived later in the afternoon so was unable to tour inside the buildings on this visit. I have done so previously. Even if one only experiences the exterior it's a grand and majestic experience, very regal in its sensibility.

I made it a point to visit several times of day and night with cameras to capture the sensibility of one of the most iconic buildings in the world. The view from the West front down the National Mall to the Lincoln Memorial 2.2 miles away is one of a kind. Be sure to wonder all the way around the complex in unhurried fashion. The upper east side will put you in proximity to the Library of congress and the Supreme Court, both quite worthy of photographic efforts.

The free tour provides a lot of great information about our country and the capitol building. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. They give you a headset so there is no problem in hearing your tour guide.

We took a 4 day vacation to DC. We walked most of the trip, family bonding and exercise. This was the best way to see DC.

We went through here several days. There was always something new to see. Although the Capitol Police would not let's take a of a pic of a Capitol Police motorcycle, I still had a good time. (It was a Sportster).
