This is a walking tour that covers 1.25 miles of walking, so wear your walking shoes! Dress for the weather, as the tours run rain or shine. Bring water, sunscreen, a hat, and an umbrella for whatever weather occurs. The tour is accessible to all, but it is a 1.25 mile walk on uneven pavement so please be cautious of this. A couple of the mansions the tour walks into are not wheelchair accessible and should be accessed with caution.

Very interesting tour. Our docent was well informed and interesting. Enjoyed it very much.
I thought the tour would include the inside of some of these homes. I should have done more research. Our tour guide did a nice job though.
Our Dosen was GREAT! Very knowledgeable. I'd recommend the Capitol Hill Walking Tour to others.
