Tour Request Form


Every American should visit our nation’s capital at least once in their lifetime.  It is a beautiful, walkable city filled with history, familiar landmarks, and educational resources.  As your Congressional Representative, I want to make your trip as memorable as possible.

Please first check to see if you reside in my district, by inputting your ZIP code (and address if necessary) into the U.S. House of Representatives website, as I am only able to accept requests from California’s new 14th District. Congressional courtesy dictates that Representatives be given the opportunity to assist their own constituents.

While you are in Washington, I welcome you to stop by my office on Capitol Hill from 9:30 to 2:30.  We are located in the Rayburn House Office Building on the 4th floor, northwest corner, in room 2465. Parking is very limited around Capitol Hill, so I highly recommend taking metro (the blue/orange/silver line) to the Federal Center SW or Capitol South stops. Whether you are travelling as a family, individual, or school group, my staff and I would love to meet you, tell you about what is happening on Capitol Hill that day, and provide you water, See’s and Gimbal’s candy, and gallery passes to view the House floor.   My office is your home turf in Washington!

If you are my constituent and would like tour-booking assistance, please consult this list to learn about the ones we can request for you, and then complete the form below as soon as you know your trip dates. My staff will be sure to reply to you within 3 business days, submit each request to the respective agency, and provide an itinerary once your tours are approved.  Although we do our best to help you, some tours fill up quickly and not all tours are guaranteed, especially tours of the White House, the Supreme Court, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, & Pentagon, and any tours from late March through June. Please let me know if you cancel your trip to DC so the tour slots can be made available to other constituents.

No tours are offered on Sundays and Mondays, and no public tours are available. Requests can be submitted up to three months in advance, and no later than 21 days in advance. Please note that high season for tours in Washington DC lasts from March until May, and during those months less than 5% of guests are confirmed for White House tours.
