Connecting You With Us
Tour guiding is a joy. Sometimes it's hard work. Sometimes it's both. Our journal chronicles the ongoing voyage.

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.

Here's the final result.

Today's historic anniversary reminds us of a time in American sports history when boxing was bigger than life.
The saga continues...
