Tour Details

A La Carte Tours are bookable on a private or semi-private basis. A private tour guarantees you a personal guide. Semi-private means you MIGHT be touring within a larger (but still intimate) group. 8 person max for both.

If the White House is the most fascinating home in the country, the area that surrounds 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the nation’s most fascinating neighborhood.

This tour centers around the history of the presidential mansion, but you'll also meet Stephen Decatur - a naval legend slain in a fateful duel. There's also Dolley Madison, who saved George Washington's portrait from British torches. You'll learn the location of the White House bowling alley, see where Churchill stayed after Eleanor Roosevelt booted him from the White House, visit a haunted mansion and much more!
