Capital Photo History Tours

Best D.C. photo tours

Who are your tour leaders?

Rick Snider is a long-time Washington newspaperman. He’s also an experienced licensed Washington tour guide who loves telling the history of his hometown.

How strenuous are tours?

Anyone in general good health can handle our tours. We walk, talk, photograph and repeat over and over. Tours vary from 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Can I exchange tickets for another tour?

Sure, we know things happen. All tickets sold can be used for any of our tours. We appreciate a prior email or call if you’re not coming and when you’d like to use the tickets.

What about bad weather?

We go rain or shine, though thunderstorms will make us take cover.

Do you have children’s discounts?

Kids 10 and under are free. Otherwise, ticket prices are the same for all ages.

Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs, but not on tour. It’s more of a tripping hazard.

What if I would like a private tour for myself or my group?

No problem. We do those all the time. Just email your request below with the preferred date.
