This esoteric tour was quite a surprise. We learned about an aqueduct over a river( that was crazy) a mill and a quarry which is along the C &O canal. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and presented the information in an easy to understand...More

Carolyn is a ridiculously knowledgeable tour guide. She knows, and has researched, so much of the history of Washington, D.C., and her love of the city clearly shines through. I love seeing and learning about landmarks and notable places in this great city.More

Great you could join the walk of D.C.'s Southwest waterfront neighborhood. Thank you for attending! Having access to Ft. Leslie J. McNair and the famous (infamous?) Grant Hall was rewarding. It's an under-the-radar site that is always fun to show customers. -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington...More

Many thanks for attending and recommending the Embassy Row walk. It's one of our most popular and, as you note, an easy-to-walk route. Remarkable, isn't it, how much architectural eye candy and history is contained in those few blocks! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

Our tour guide was excellent. She knew a lot, was able to answer questions in detail and welcomed the input from the people on the tour who had lived here for years. She spoke very clearly. Good job.

Could agree more. The charming street you explored (thank you for the artful photographs!) is in D.C.'s Kalorama neighborhood, one the city's most beautiful. In fact, the name Kalorama is derived from the Greek term for "beautiful view." No doubt you would agree with that...More
