So many symbolic references that are only apparent if you take the tour. Excellent story telling. Loved it, plus the book about the Hermetic Code is very thought provoking. Highly recommend the tour.

We received a private tour with our SKAL group, expertly narrated by Don Finkbeiner of Heartland Tours. Very interesting stories of the planning and building of our legislature. Many unknown tales that are just incredible!

PROS: The building is truly jaw-dropping, a real surprise. The tour leader knows his stuff and is enthusiastic. CONS: Forty bucks is ridiculous. The tour guide spends waaay too much time talking about himself and how clever he is. OVERALL: Still an unforgettable experience.More

This is an amazing tour. Lots of information to take in and process. I bought the book at the end of the tour and wish I'd read it beforehand. I'll likely do the tour again because it is so interesting.

The tour is always on Wednesdays at 6pm. You may contact the travel agency to find out if a special day can be chosen if for example there's a big group of you coming in another day of a week.
