Experience the US Capitol Building & Capitol Hill Walking Tour.

Capitol Hill is one of the most storied and beautiful neighborhoods in Washington, DC. We'll begin our tour at the most visited site in the whole city: Union Station. From there, we'll take in all the Monuments and Memorials around Capitol Hill. We'll ascend Capitol Hill and visit the Supreme Court, then walk inside the stunning Library of Congress Jefferson Building which boasts some of the most beautiful architecture in the city. 

Later, we'll stroll across the street and visit the United States Capitol Visitor Center. With your tour, you'll get reserved access to the Capitol Building as well as a docent-led tour of the Capitol. Reserved Access can help you save hours in waiting time, and will get your right in to the Capitol Building immediately after your neighborhood tour ends.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    When you reserve a tour, we schedule our exceptional guides and support staff to make your tour the best experience possible. For this reason we require a minimum of 72 hours notice for cancellations and/or rescheduling of tours. If you fail to meet your appointment, we still incur the same expenses, we probably have turned away others guests that would like to go on tour, and tour guides may have shown up just for your group. Therefore, there are no refunds for those guests who fail to show for a reservation or cancel without 72 hours notice.

US Capitol Building & Capitol Hill Walking Tour Reviews

US Capitol Building & Capitol Hill Walking Tour is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from problem solved We started off on the wrong foot - the tour guide failed to show. I called into the office and got Mike, the operations manager. Mike was outstanding. He quickly established what had happened (the tour guide was sick but hadn't called in), looked up my information and forwarded it to me so I and the others in my group could tour the Capitol building. City Segway Tours even had my ticket refunds back in my bank account the next day. Bad start, good finish. To me, the quality of the company isn't in how it performs when things go well but rather in how it handles the situation when things go wrong. By that measure, Mike and City Segway Tours did a great job.
