Create an itinerary including White House
The simple name is doesn’t match the power that comes with White House. This recognizable house serves as the home and workplace of the president of the United States. Originally completed in 1800, the building has housed every U.S. President. Its exterior showcases Neoclassical architectural style, including Greek columns and its signature white facade. The complex itself contains the presidential residence, the West and East Wings, and an executive office building. The Oval Office within the West Wing hosts many of the president's daily meetings and acts as the nerve center for the entire building. To tour the White House, you must arrange your visit through a Member of Congress. Tour reservations are extremely limited. Even if you can't go on a tour, be sure to walk by to see the exterior of this famous residence. To visit White House and get the most from your holiday in Washington DC, create itinerary details personal to you using our Washington DC tour itinerary planner.

  • Historically the most important building in US history. That in itself makes it worth the trip. Downside is that you are to far off to see and enjoy the architecture. But still a MUST when visiting....  more

  • I was disappointed that our tour bus didn't take us closer. We didn't know they changed those plans until we were on it. So, unfortunately, we were only able to see it from afar. Nevertheless, it is an impressive building. I would love to go back one day for a full tour.
  • Frankly sharing with you there is not much to see and move around the white house. Visited this place in 2013 and a bit disappointed. One can see WH from a far distance. It is just ritual to visit this place while in DC/USA.
  • Amazing
