We were unable to get Capitol tours any other way, so booked this. We got right in to see the archives first thing and our guide, Ryan, was very knowledgeable and well respected by the guards. We learned a few things on our way to the Capitol and then attended the tour they provide. I highly recommend this tour.

Great anecdotes and stories shared by our guide. We got a little of the inside scoop from a DC native, including plans for new museums on the Mall.
