The White House really stands out. I never expected it to be where it was since whenever they show the White House it is seen as a stand alone building away from all other civilisation. There is a lovely park leading it up to it...More

Not as grand as thought, but then the President does not stand above others but as an equal .... or so it should be. Works were in progress to increase the height of the security fence whilst we were there.

This should be a must visit on your trip to DC. I was not thinking this would be a great tour because you only see the east wing. I was wrong. We really enjoyed our time on the tour. You have to preplan with your...More

Our tour group was able to do the tour of the White House. Of course the security was very good, and it was neat to see some of the rooms in our country's mansion.

The White House was definitely not what I wanted in expectations. It looks beautiful yes, but fenced and covered front due to remodeling the grounds. There seemed to be a huge secret service and police presence, more than one would expect. Of course, I was...More

We had an early tour time of 9 am. Expect security checks (4) and body/bag checks. You can take your cell phone in for photos but no recordings. A lot of changes since I last visited in 1983. Back then there was a tour guide...More

Contact your Congressman. They will have a person who handles the requests for a tour. You need to do it as soon as you can, 90 days prior to your visit. There are limited spots and they fill up quickly.
