What is Your Special Interest? with private guide
Tours can be tailored for almost any specific interest you have: historic neighborhoods, churches, natural parks or formal gardens, modern architecture or early buildings, art museums, house museums . . . it goes on and on. Let me know what interests you and I'll see what I can come up with.
This tour is shown as half-day (four hours) but can of course be extended or reduced as your interest and the subject matter dictate. We'll mostly walk but if the itinerary takes us far afield we might have a few more taxi rides than in the other published tours.
This tour is made for you -- what special interest do you have? Libraries and archives? Formal gardens? Victorian mansions? Christmas displays (in season!)? A walk thru one of city's many natural parks? Newly-developing areas, or historic districts? A sample of various DC neighborhoods?
Tell me what you want to see, and perhaps some special reason to take the tour (one young lady just moving here wanted to actually see all parts of the city as an orientation) and I'll work up an itinerary for you.
