Meet the Owner

Dr. Adam Plescia

It wasn’t long after Adam arrived to begin his Ph.D. work at the Catholic University of America that his passion and enthusiasm for the city found its expression in leading tours throughout the nation’s capital. That enthusiasm begins with the rich political and cultural history of the city and its past inhabitants, but it also extends to the city life in the present.

What was once a part-time job during doctoral studies has now developed into both a passion and a profession. He has guided hundreds of families as well as student groups through Washington, DC. He still teaches biblical studies courses at a nearby seminary. When he is not guiding or teaching, Adam can be found kiteboarding on the Chesapeake Bay, Cape Hatteras, or wherever the wind is blowing.

Adam has been guiding tours in and around Washington, DC since 1999. He holds a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from the Catholic University of America. He is a licensed tour guide in the District of Columbia, and he is a member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, DC.

On tour Adam brings to bear his skills as a teacher. His tours are well researched and historically accurate. At the same time, he weaves in humor, anecdotes, and trivia. He is a versatile and easygoing guide who is capable of working with groups of all types and every age. Those who have been on tour with him find comfort in his calm and competent demeanor. But calm doesn’t mean boring! He is a skillful storyteller and speaker who is able to make the city come to life.
