Connecting You With Us
Tour guiding is a joy. Sometimes it's hard work. Sometimes it's both. Our journal chronicles the ongoing voyage. Here we keep you connected with our tours, videos, audiobooks, upcoming events and American history tidbits. Plus, it's a good platform to share our general observations and mindless musings.

Another day, another fabulous bow tie video. Over the past few months I've been compiling footage in order to create a promotional spot on behalf of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington D.C. (a wonderful organization to which I belong). The purpose of the video is to convince D.C. visitors that hiring a Guild Guide is their best bet for experiencing the city during their upcoming trip.
