Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Make sure you sign up for a free tour online; otherwise, you won’t be able to go beyond the lobby. The Pennsylvania Capitol is breathtakingly beautiful, and the tour is well worth it for anyone traveling through the state. You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy the historical tour—it’s a captivating experience for everyone. Highly recommended!

My family had a Saturday reservation to go on a tour of the PA State House.

We found ourselves lost outside the capitol building and not sure where to enter. Frustrated and confused, I called the tour desk from the car and an absolute MISERABLE and CLUELESS lady answered the phone.

I frankly thought it was a teenage intern on the other end since she was quite flustered and unaware of how to direct me around the corner to the front of the building. I asked where to go in relation to where I was located and she kept repeating the address (which I already had) with no further assistance. I told her my location and she told me she was too busy to stay on the phone but I’d better hurry up or the tour would leave without us. She repeated 4 times “if you’re not here I will start the tour without you.” She then hung up on me mid-sentence.

Within 5 minutes we found the front door to the building. My husband dropped off the children and I and we went racing up the steps of the capitol and through the metal detector. The policeman scanning us asked why I was out of breath and I jovially replied I was running to get there because the lady on the phone said she was going to start the tour without us.

As the policeman and I exchanged peasantries, a booming voice echoed through the rotunda. It was a woman seated at the tour desk. “PATTY” read her nametag and she shouted out from across the desk….“I never said that!.” To my surprise the person who had answered the phone was sitting at the front desk. She was not an inexperienced teen but an older woman with apparently no phone etiquette or sense of direction.

She repeated again “I never told you that you couldn’t come to the tour!” “ Yes you did, four times” I replied. “No, no, no, You’re making me upset” she retorted.

She then proceed to say she didn’t like my tone and walked over to the state police man and informed him that she didn’t want me on her tour! I was shocked. My kids were shocked. The policeman was shocked. We were kicked out before we even started!!! My husband, who had been looking for parking, walked in to discover the aftermath.

The policeman apologized profusely and told me THREE times to file a complaint against her. He said nothing I said or did warranted that kind of reaction.

I guess she was having a bad day and decided to take out her ills on us!! In any case, She certainly should NOT be the face of the Pennsylvania government!!

Sadly, We never got to tour the state house and were very disappointed. Too bad one lady could ruin a family outing with her attempt at a power trip. If YOU go for a tour and see written on the name tag “Patty”…..run in the opposite direction!!

We sauntered up to the Capitol grounds on a chilly Thanksgiving. The building is scaled monumentally, set on a hill in Harrisburg. It is more ornate and detailed then the average capitol, with some truly spectacular artwork. We were surpised that even on Thanksgiving, the front door was open for the general public to proceed through security. This allowed you straight into the atrium under the dome - where you could look up at the spectacular murals and artistry. There were some modest historical exhibits around the periphery and the beginnings of the Christmas tree and holiday decorations being installed. While we didn't get to go on a broader tour, even standing udner the dome is worth the effort, particularly if you can find easy street parking nearby, as we did on a holiday.

This place is absolutely stunning. We always try to visit a state capitol building whilst in the US and I have got to say all the others are going to pale into insignificance after this one. We were so lucky to catch the final tour of the day, you can do a self guided tour but would really recommend the half hour guided tour, gives a building soul! Just me and hubby on the tour and the lady was really nice and definitely knew her stuff, what a beautiful place to work. The paintings are amazing as are the glass windows and dome, I have seen European palaces less glitzy than this! Make sure you pick up the A4 size free brochure as a souvenir on your way out. 100% recommend a visit here. Parking outside on the streets is on a meter and is $4 an hour.

This is a magnificient building both inside and outside. To see the interior, you must join a tour. We didn't sign up in advance but they just let us join the next tour anyway, which included the Senate Chamber, the Supreme Court, and the House Chamber. The tour guide mentioned of the liberal use of gold in the decoration and it costs $13 million when it was built in the early 20th century. It was beautiful and well worth a visit.

The exterior of the building is stunningly beautiful. The rotunda ARA inside is quite nice.

Here are the areas for improvement:

There are, ironically, very few things to actually see inside - one suspects they do so to get visitors to the state museum

The gift shop closes before the building does to visitors - yet they don’t tell visitors that - we missed the gift shop because of this

When not in session, the floor should be open to visit and take photos

Just a few things to be aware of

Went for a tour today in the capital building and it was really cool and interesting to learn the history of the building and to see where all the branches of government are taken place in Pennsylvania. Highly recommend

It was a rainy day in Harrisburg, and I was looking for indoor things to do. The Pennsylvania State Capitol offers free tours, but I didn't want to lock in a time, so I just showed up for the 3:30 pm tour. (The website shows whether a time slot is full, which really helped.) The tour started right on time under the main dome. (I walked up the front steps, went through security, and was right there. Bathrooms are right after security.) Our tour guide was AMAZING! I went after the sessions were done for the day, so the guide was able to talk about the art in the House and Senate chambers. You also get to go in the elevator and the Supreme Court. I've been to several state capitols, and most are impressive, but this is truly a "Palace of Art"! So glad I went! Highly recommended.
