My Washington office can assist you with planning your visit by providing a variety of maps and brochures that will prove helpful in acquainting you with the Washington, D.C. area. Click here to learn about what Washington, D.C. has to offer during your trip.

In addition, with advanced notice, special Congressional tours may be arranged. The main advantage to these tours is that you can avoid waiting in lines to obtain tickets. However, these tours are virtually the same as the public tours.

The Congressionally scheduled tours are very limited, and distributed on a first-come first-served basis. Also, once the request has been submitted, our office has little control over the decisions made by the specific sites.

We look forward to providing you with as much information as we can in order to help make your visit educational and memorable. Good luck with your visit planning!

If we can be of assistance in setting up any other tours in Washington, D.C. please do not hesitate to contact Chandler Smith at 202-225-1986 or fill out the form below.
