What to Expect What to Expect

• U.S. Capitol Building
• The U.S. Supreme Court
• The Library of Congress
• The Folger Shakespeare Museum and Theater
Meet your guide at 9:00 am at the Neptune Fountain outside the Library of Congress and make your way inside the U.S. Capitol for reserved entry for a guided tour of the Legislative branch of the U.S. Government. 
Then continue across to the Library of Congress Jefferson Building where you will see part of Thomas Jefferson's original collection of over 6,000 books he sold to Congress to replace those burned in the War of 1812, view the main reading room, a Gutenburg Bible and marvel over the stunning architecture work.
From there, visit the U.S. Supreme, the Judicial branch of the U.S. Government, and tour the building where cases that changed history were heard and settled.
Afterwards, get an exclusive tour of the Folger Shakespeare Museum and Theater featuring the largest collection of Shakespeare first folios in the world. Step back in time as you view some of Shakespeare's original writing, the Grand Hall, special exhibits, and tour the Folger Theater.

This tour was awesome. Lyam was our guide and he was wonderful. I had 3 grandchildren with me and he kept their attention as well as mine. He was very accommodating and answered all our questions about not only the tour but Washington too. We were very excited to find out that he would be our guide the next day at Arlington. Great tour.

Very informed guide. We really enjoyed the range of the tour - Congressional buildings, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the Folger/Shakespeare Library. A lovely way to spend the morning.

Even with a guide we had to wait an hour for him to get passes to go into the Congressional buildings. It would be good to know that there is a place to check bags and coats at the beginning of the tour.

Liam was a very nice guide. He knew a lot about the history and the city. We were the only two on that day and it was great! Weve enjoyed the walking tour with him very much: starting at the Capitol was a great begin of our tour, it was fantastic! The Library was so beautiful. And walking outside was with great views.

Great tour. Liam was a fast flowing fountain of interesting and enlightening information and trivia. He took good care of 4 quite senior citizens--walking slowly, avoiding as many stairs as possible and getting us elevator rides. So much to see and learn and such beautiful architecture inside and out---not to be missed when in DC. Would strongly recommend this tour for locals and visitors, ages 10 and up. Very satisfying experience.

One of the best tours we have done, so much more than I expected, not going to say any more than just do it if you are in Washington, you won't be disappointed !

The main tip I would give my fellow future travellers is.
Make sure you have a phone number to call someone.
We arrived at our pick up point, waited and waited, no one showed up!
We called the guide, who bless him was there within 10 mins.
The tour was good , the guide Liam was excellent.
Bit of a let down from Viator.

It was great having our own guide for just the family and our guide was very knowledgeable. It wasn't clear to me that he was not giving the tour of the Capitol Building, which would have been much better than being dropped off/picked up for the group tour. I would have given 5 stars if he was with us at that time.

Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We did not realize that the Capitol guided tour is really given by Capitol tour personnel, not by our
tour guide.

This tour was great, though it didn't get off to a good start. Our tour guide kept us waiting for about 15-20 minutes, but he quickly made up for it at the Library of Congress and his behind-the-scenes knowledge of what happens there. A few tourists stopped by to listen to a few of stories. The Supreme Court was closed, though, and the Shakespeare Library was pretty uneventful. The library would have been a more meaningful experience of perhaps we could have been given a small tour by library staff.

Fantastic tour of Capitol Hill. Although we've visited DC a few times, as friends were joining us we booked a guided tour and learned so much! Liam was brilliant and gave us lots of insight into the area and buildings. Our group of 4 were the only ones on the tour so we had Liam's insider knowledge to ourselves. Highly recommended !

Good tour but need to take when the House and Supreme Court are in session. Not much to see on Saturday when they are not in session. Tour guide was wonderful and knowledgeable.
