Visiting D.C.

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 is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Washington, D.C. and provides visitors with access to sections of the East Wing and residence. These self-guided tours are available from 7:30 am to 11 am Tuesday through Thursday, 7:30 am to 12:00 pm on Fridays, and 7:30 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays (excluding federal holidays or unless otherwise noted) and are free of charge. Please note that White House tours are not available on Sundays or Mondays.

My office is happy to assist my constituents in arranging a tour of this historic landmark throughout the year. We ask that you please submit your tour request to my office approximately three months before your desired tour dates. My office is able to submit requests at a minimum of 21 days in advance but limited space will be available at that time. The White House Visitor's Office allots tours on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Once our office submits your request to the White House, no additions or changes can be made, so please make sure all of your information is correct. Please note that submitted tour requests are not guaranteed and the White House Visitors Office determines what tour requests are approved.

If your group is approved by the White House Visitors Office, the White House will send my office a confirmation letter with the time and date of your tour approximately one month to one week before your requested tour date(s). The scheduling of tours is up to the complete discretion of the White House and tours may be canceled for official events.
