It looks like a rather modest white building, in which the US Presidential Administration is located. The mansion was built in 1800 under the second American president John Adams. The building consists of six floors (including basement and basement). Two floors are occupied by the family of the incumbent president, the rest are administrative premises, reception halls, dining rooms. Together with the tour you can see the historic chambers of the White House: Blue, Green, Red rooms and some others.

The white house tour was amazing. It was filled with amazing history and we even got to see the president arrive back from a trip. You have to request the tour through your state representative but if you do enough in advance it is well worth it.

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.
There are two tours for The White House: The East Wing tour and the West Wing tour. The East Wing is the standard tour where you get tickets through your Representatives' office.

It's super fun to say you were at the White House and this tour seems well and good....until you learn about the West Wing tour.
The West Wing tour is where the action is. It's the tour of the press room, the cabinet meeting room, the Oval Office, and all the other exclusive, private areas of the White House. This tour can only be accessed through someone who works at the West Wing, but it's SUPER cool!
Both tours require giving your social security number for security reasons.
