Yes, you cannot come to Washington DC without visiting Capital hill. The extra security all around is very noticeable, and you feel safe. Lots of tourists taking selfies and memorable photos. The gardens are well kept.

Within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol, this is a great little place to explore. Quaint 'row' homes and great little neighborhoods. Park your car and enjoy walking around!

Very disappointed in all of the security around DC in general but extremely sad to see our capital fenced off from the people it serves. It is a magnificent building but completely inaccessible from the East side.

Only saw this building from top deck of bus but it looks spectacular & huge. It was the day of 9/11 so couldn't get close or even tour the building. Beautiful old building well maintained.

We got reservations through our Senator and things went quite smoothly. The Capitol Building is just amazing and the docents are very knowledgeable. We were able to go through the underground tunnel on to the Library of Congress for more touring.

How could anybody visit our nation's capital without touring the Capitol Hill? This is where all the action is for the House of Representatives & the Senate. Book 3 month ahead with your representative or senator for a personal tour of the Capitol. A Don't...More

Appreciate the guided tour to explain the details. The only thing I was looking for is ....there are no nearby souvenir shops...
