We regret to inform you that because of cuts to the budget because of sequestration, the White House is canceling all tours after Friday, March 8, 2013. Unfortunately, the White House is not able to reschedule any affected tours. You are welcomed to continue to submit your request for a White House tour, but please be aware that there is no guarantee that tours will be offered during your visit.
At this time, the Capitol Visitors Center will continue to offer tours. Please fill out the form below to request a Capitol tour during your visit.

There are several requirements that must be met for White House tours, including security checks and advance reservations. Please note that all White House tours are self-guided and take place Tuesday through Saturday between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
As always, White House tour schedules are entirely dependent on the President and First Lady's schedule, and sometimes they will have to be either cancelled or rescheduled at the last minute. Due to the limited availability of White House tours, it is imperative that you contact my office at your earliest convenience and AT LEAST THREE MONTHS PRIOR to your planned arrival in Washington.
When you request a tour please submit the following information: the name, address, daytime phone number of the tour group's primary contact person, and the size of your group.
On September 4, 2009 President Obama announced that visitor access records to the White House Complex will be made publicly available 90-120 days after the date of visit. This policy includes all guests touring the White House. Please be aware that your full name and the date of your visit will be part of the publicly released records.
