Private tours

Rick Snider

Looking for a unique experience whether on the National Mall or the lesser-seen parts of Washington? We offer it all.

Private tours tailor information for your interests. Maybe you want to see particular monuments or graves at Arlington National Cemetery. Perhaps your children are studying subjects that can be expanded by a personal guide. A licensed Washington, D.C. tour guide and a member of the local guide guild, Rick can take you wherever you’d like.

Some of our unique tours include the Lincoln assassination, Embassy Row, Georgetown, National Cathedral, Capitol Hill and even a drinking tour around the White House featuring favorite libations of past presidents and first ladies.

See Washington the best way possible — your way
