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.

Itinerary

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.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Your hotel or some easy-to-find place in DC, such as Union Station.

End location: Back at the hotel or some good place for shopping/dinner/evening out.

Duration: 4 hours

This is set as half-day (four hours) but the tour can be of any length and the cost adjusted.

Transportation

Walking, subway (Metro), taxi.

What’s Included

Other: Tour planning, historical and architectural commentary, possibly advance entry arrangements.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 USD - Snacks, metro/taxis, maybe souvenirs. Some tours might require more taxi rides than others, depending on what we're seeing, and a few places charge entry fees.

What’s Extra

Other: You will need money for snacks/lunches, any transportation (metro/taxi), entry tickets if required, and souvenirs.

Restrictions

Don't provide private transportation, but can help arrange this with local companies if desired.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hayden was very flexible and adapted the tour to the speed of our group. He was very flexible in terms of meeting time and very easy to connect with by the tour email program and by cell phone.
