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 Jeffersons Love of books and how his collection became the seed from which the worlds 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 visitors galleries of the current chambers for the House of Representatives and or the Senate, to be seen at your leisure.

    we really enjoyed our tour of Capital Hill, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Our tour guide, Tony, was wonderful. He was very informative and did a great job managing our time in order for us to see everything.

    we toured the outside and inside three of the most important buildings in DC: Capitol Building, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Donna the guide provided very clear history and function of each of these institutions, with great story telling. Its a great overview if you want to have an idea about these buildings in a single tour.

    Wow! Donna was amazing! She had tons of energy, and so much knowledge about what we were visiting. Honestly we could have followed her around all day! Highly recommend!

    Our guide, Richard Robinson III was the best, His knowledge and ability to navigate the labyrinths of the Capital Center were greatly appreciated by our group. As an added treat he took the group to visit the Folger Shakespeare Library, not to be missed if you are a fan of Shakespeare fan!
