Services: Tour Requests

I am excited that you are planning a trip to Washington D.C. This historical city has much to offer and the list below includes many of the popular and important sights to see during your visit. Please take advantage of the many free attractions, monuments, museums and other historical places of interest.

Tours, including the Capitol and the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, can be arranged through my Washington office.

To tour the White House, constituents must place requests through a Congressional office. The tours of the White House are self-guided and for groups of ten or more. If a White House tour request is granted, you will need to provide the Social Security numbers, dates of birth and the country of origin of everyone in the party. Please note that White House tours are limited and are therefore very difficult to get. Because they are subject to last-minute cancellations, we recommend that visitors DO NOT plan their trip around visiting the White House. Their tour office has advised us to encourage all constituents interested in a tour to submit their request up to six months in advance. These tours are given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Unfortunately, due to the high demand for all tours, especially in the summer, it is not guaranteed that all tour requests will be filled. Our office will do our best to help accommodate your group's request.

To place a request through my office, please submit an on-line tour request form. You can also contact the Washington D.C. or Detroit office by fax or by phone. You will need to supply the dates that you will be available for tours (not including your arrival and departure dates), the number of people in your party, and the specific tours of interest.
