This tour takes visitors through the political core of Washington DC! From the original L'Enfant city plan, to the tumultuous construction of the Capitol and Grounds, the rise of the magnificent Beaux Arts Library of Congress and imposing Supreme Court, and into the present day. Prolific designers like Thomas Jefferson, Robert Mills, Frederick Law Olmstead, and Daniel Burnham will feature prominently. Controversy, chaos, and red tape abound! A tour not to be missed by architecture and history enthusiasts.
Please note that all government buildings are currently closed to visitors, so we'll be discussing the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, and U.S. Capitol Building from the outside.

Carolyn and Sam of DC Design Tours are two history buff architecture nerds with a passion for story telling!

Carolyn is a former architect and life-long lover of all things brick and mortar. She prefers to talk about buildings than draw them. The District has been her home since 2006, and when not guiding, you can find her counting columns at the National Building Museum (there are 152) and traipsing through Rock Creek National Park.

Sam is an enthusiast for architectural design, history, and talking a mile a minute. Originally from the Bluegrass State, he's a full fledged Washingtonian now.

Nerede olacaksınız?

We’ll begin in the Great Hall of Union Station. This crossroads of Presidents, diplomats, and politicians has seen drastic change, from inaugurations, to World Wars, and even a runaway train! We’ll proceed to the steps of the Supreme Court, then across the street to the Library of Congress before heading down Capitol Hill for a gorgeous front and center view of the United States Capitol Building.

The tour is of the capital but because of limits to the inside of buildings we only saw the exteriors. Carolyn is an expert and was able to provide great information about all that we saw, including small, often funny, details about the people who built the buildings. A lot of ground was covered but Carolyn made it both informative and fund. Well worth the time.

Carolyn is a lovely host. I enjoyed leaning more in the way of history than I expected. She is funny, down to earth and knows her stuff! It was entertaining, educational and fun.

Ha sido una ruta muy interesante. Se nota que Carolyn sabe perfectamente de lo que habla y que es un tema sobre el que le apasiona hablar. Estuvo atenta a nuestras dudas y preguntas todo el recorrido, fomentando la participación e incluso haciéndonos fotos con nuestros teléfonos. Muy agradable y recomendable. Si estuviéramos libres mañana, haríamos el tour por Georgetown o algún otro de los que tienen.
