Washington's upscale neighborhood!
A fascinating tour of both the East & West Villages of Georgetown, from Julia Child's home to the Exorcist steps. The tour includes a history of Georgetown beginning with its incorporation in 1751 to the present day, and stories of some of it's most interesting and eccentric personalities including John Kennedy, Francis Scott Key and Marquis de Lafayette. You will see marvelous 250 year old mansions as well as hear stories of political intrigue. This 3 hour tour ends in Georgetown's shopping and restaurant district where you can enjoy fine dining or a casual meal.
We start at the Little Park at 28th & Penn. Ave. , walk along the west side of Rock Creek Park, then tour the East Village, south on Wisconsin Ave. to O St. , then tour the West Village ending at Francis Scott Key Park off of M St. near Key Bridge.

First time visiting Georgetown, and the guided tour with Jim provided us with a unique "locals" experience. Jim's approach and local's perspective resulted in a memorable experience.
