There’s much more to Capitol Hill than the US Capitol building that stands atop it. It is both the heart of the American government and a vibrant neighborhood at the geographic center of Washington D.C. From the Capitol Grounds—a lush landscape of sweeping lawns and more than 4,000 trees—to the Capitol Reflecting Pool and Congressional office buildings, there is much to see and do on the Hill.

What makes this private tour unique is that will covered almost all the memorials sites and makes stops as we go. Sometimes we allowed the travelers to choose which sites they want to see and those that they did not really care about. And because of the walking distance to some of the sites travelers also choose to skip some of the sites. In this case we don't impose anything on the travelers, we give them the opportunities to choose must see sites for them; and we're flexible in this direction. This flexibilities we have available is what they cannot enjoy with other tour companies in Washington DC. Rather they choose what they want you to see as the travelers.
