Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Explore Capitol Hill, the epicenter of activity in Washington DC, on a 2.5-hour private guided walking tour, pairing you with your own personal guide. Our knowledgeable local will show you the buildings and institution that have made DC such an important part of the United States.


Visit the beating heart of Washington DC where two of the three branches of the United States government meet. This tour includes the stunning exteriors of the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and the Capitol. Walk the grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park in New York City. Go inside the Thomas Jefferson building of the Library of Congress designed as a temple of knowledge (and to prove the United States understood Art, Culture, and Sophistication as well as any country in Europe.) While there check out a real Gutenberg Bible, this copy is one of only four complete Gutenberg Bibles printed on vellum, in the world. You will also learn about Thomas Jefferson’s love of books and how his collection became the seed from which the world’s largest library grew. Learn about the judicial system within the elegant marble halls at the Museum of the Supreme Court, and maybe get a peek inside the actual courtroom. Your guide will end the tour providing access passes (and information about security protocols) for the visitor’s galleries of the current chambers for the House of Representatives and or the Senate, to be seen at your leisure.

    Aaron was our guide and he was wonderful! He had so much knowledge to share as well as incidental details to throw in that made it that much more enjoyable. During the tour he asked if we would prefer to see the Supreme Court or Library of Congress and ended up showing us both of them. That was wonderful for us because we had a tour scheduled for the Library of Congress the next day which freed us to schedule something else during that time. He was very willing to take pictures for us and was the perfect gentleman. We REALLY enjoyed his tour!

    We went to New York in November with Babylon City Tours & w loved it so much we had to try it again! We took a trip in December and Aaron was our guide, he made things so much fun and memorable! Can't wait to try all their European tours next!
