Visiting Washington, D.C. is an exciting and educational experience. My staff can also serve as a resource in booking tours for your trip. Please fill out our online tour request form if you're interested in participating in any of the following tours.

 

The White House

The White House provides visitors access to sections of the East Wing and residence. We can request tours on behalf of constituents most Tuesdays through Saturdays at least three weeks in advance. We ask that you please submit your tour request to my office about three months before your desired tour dates. Once our office submits your request to the White House, you will receive a follow up email with instructions to register your party. After your initial registration, no additions nor changes can be made, so please make sure all of your information is correct. The White House will send both you and my office an email either confirming or denying your tour exactly two weeks prior to your last requested tour date.
