Tom S.

Alexandria, VA, United States

I provide specialized insight while arranging customer entry to attractions, military bases, and clubs not normally accessible to the general public.

As a twelve-year resident of the National Capital Region I have studied the military history of the area, visited each of its military sites, and discovered extraordinary exhibits, archives, and artifacts not widely known to the public.

I'm a twenty-year veteran Navy Officer and graduate of the Marine Corps Command and Staff College. I live in Old Town Alexandria, VA with my wife Eileen and two children.

A Recent Review of this guide

This was an amazing tour! This is the only way to see Arlington and other parts of DC. Tom is so knowledgeable and makes the tour so enjoyable. Not only did we see a lot, but we also learned a lot! I wish we would have had Tom the entire time we were in DC :).
