    I really liked the way the tour was organized, plus entering the U.S. Capitol without waiting in line or anything else was a huge joy. I had been there years before and because of the amount of people I had to wait to see it. I definitely recommend this service!

    As a novelty and a mandatory point to know if you go to Washington is fine. I'm not really into history, but the guide made the whole talk very entertaining.
