Please let our office know as soon as you confirm your visit to DC, if you would like to to request a tour. Two months notice is much appreciated and sometimes required (for tours including the White House, Capitol, and others). *
*While we do our best to meet every request we receive, due to the high number of inquiries, not all tour requests can be filled. Please also note that during holiday seasons (or spring/summer break) tours may fill up faster than expected.
