About Us


Rick Snider is a licensed Washington tour guide since 2010 and also National Cathedral certified. A native Washingtonian, he’s known as a local sports writer since 1978 and now writes for Sports Illustrated’s Redskins Report, SportBusiness.com and 106.7 The Fan among others. The author of nine books is developing a podcast of Christian fiction.

Most of all, Rick is a story teller with a keen eye for photos developed as a young newsman when also carrying a camera. His tours are built around having fun while understanding why history relates to today. Check out his specialty tours on the Lincoln assassination, Embassy Row, Mount Vernon and Georgetown.
