    Itinerary

    Washington, DC is incomplete without a visit to the Capitol Hill which is home to America’s legislative and judicial branches. The hot seat of American governmental policies and politics, this tour by foot lets you socialize and put forth your opinion over a friendly battle of words while in the presence of the magnificent Capitol Hill - one of America’s most famous historic neighborhood!

    The giant domed structure of the iconic Capitol Building is the signature representation of America in the movies. Rightfully starting the tour in front of it prepares you for a fact filled afternoon.

    Walk down the historic 8th Street while engaging discussions. Let the thoughts roll out freely but also remember to keep them friendly! Strolling through, you’ll be crossing many historic places like the Old Navy Hospital, and the Marine Corp Barracks. By day these places are a buzz with senators and lawyers but by night, it transforms into a food gully giving away gastronomic delights!

    Then, head over to the east of the Capitol to visit the Old Navy Hospital, a landmark made in Italian and Greek architectural styles, it is a facility that took care of injured sailors and marines during the war.

    This is followed by the Marine Corp Barracks, a significant addition to the lane right after the Civil War, this still supports the ceremonial and security missions in the capital.

    Finally, the tour draws to its end at the oldest commercial complex in the city, the Barrack’s Row.

    The tour will end at Marine Barracks, 8th & I St. SE, Washington, DC
