Visiting the Sights of Washington D.C.
Our Office can assist you in booking tours of the United States Capitol Building. Although getting into the Capitol does require tickets, the Capitol Visitor Center(CVC) is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please contact our office for more information and for assistance in booking these tours. Please be sure to include the dates of your trip and the number of people who would like to join the tour. Staff-guided tours may be possible for weekday visitors. For Saturday visitors, all tours will be led by the professional CVC guides.
Please note that when visiting the Capitol Building, there are certain items that are prohibited from the facility. For a full list of these items please click here. If you have any questions feel free to contact our office.

White House Tours:
Our office can also assist you in booking tours of The White House. The White House requires security information at the time the tour request is made. The White House requires all security information to be submitted at least 21 days in advance. The White House requires the following information from all those who wish to attend the tour:

Furthermore, tours can be canceled or changed at any point. The best chance of getting a White House tour is to submit your request at least 6 months in advance. Due to the volume of requests received by the White House, some requests may be denied. These decisions are made by the White House and are beyond our control.
