Det skal I lave

Gilded Age opulent mansions and grand embassies line the streets of one of Washington DC's most fashionable neighborhoods-- Dupont Circle. On a two hour walking tour, we'll stroll along Embassy Row and see some of the city's most impressive properties. We'll discuss the stories and scandals that helped shape the Nation behind the doors of the District's most extravagant homes.

Carolyn and Sam of DC Design Tours are two history buff architecture nerds with a passion for story telling!

Carolyn is a former architect and life-long lover of all things brick and mortar. She prefers to talk about buildings than draw them. The District has been her home since 2006, and when not guiding, you can find her counting columns at the National Building Museum (there are 152) and traipsing through Rock Creek National Park.

Sam is an enthusiast for architectural design, history, and talking a mile a minute. Originally from the Bluegrass State, he's a full fledged Washingtonian now.

Her skal du være

We'll begin in the namesake of the neighborhood, Dupont Circle. Strolling down Embassy Row, we'll take in the lavish mansions of Washington's Gilded Age elite, discussing politicians, society ladies, diplomats, and captains of industry. Past Woodrow Wilson's post-presidency home, down the Spanish Steps, to the home of FDR, and a local landmark neighbors have dubbed the "The Hobbit House". We'll wrap up outside one of the best hidden gems in DC.

We enjoyed learning about the Dupont Circle neighborhood and seeing many of the beautiful homes on Embassy Row. Sam was well informed, very personable, and funny.

Sam’s energy, humor and stories made the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was good to get the historical background to a few homes and the discovery of the Spanish Steps was nice.

I was so impressed with this tour! I’m somewhat local so while I was familiar with the DuPont area I was wanting to learn more about the history and architecture in the neighborhood and come away with fun facts to tell my friends/family. Not only did Carolyn provide all of that and more, she was super friendly and fun to listen to. She engaged with all of the participants and you could tell she was passionate about the subject matter. I will be sure to recommend this tour to my friends and family and anyone who wants an “off the beaten path” tour experience in DC!

Carolyn was exceedingly warm, friendly, and very well-versed in the history of the neighborhood. She is approachable and just the right person to lead a tour.

A really terrific tour of the Embassy Row neighborhood---both of the buildings themselves and the people who lived in them. I went with three DC locals who each said that they'd seen the buildings many times without realizing how interesting they were. So pleased I did this.

Carolyn was excellent!! Both my teenage daughter and I were impressed with her knowledge and loved her personality. There was one person in the group who monopolized asking questions, and Carolyn handled it graciously (never showing impatience) and managed to keep the rest of us engaged too. Several customers were actually from the area, which I thought was a real compliment to Carolyn; she offers an experience and knowledge that people who’ve lived in DC a long time can also enjoy! Will do another tour with her (Capitol Hill & Georgetown) when we visit DC again!
