It’s spring in Washington and DC is OPEN!
As winter has turned to spring many folks are contacting us about booking tours. Callers on several occasions pointedly have asked, “Hey, are you guys open?” The short answer is YES! Please send us an email or call us so that we can discuss tour options. Washington DC is reopening (#DCisOPEN)! Especially locals and all who are considering a drive to DC please contact us. Now is the time to make plans to get out this spring and summer, to see anew this great city located right in your own backyard.
We’ve been offering private tours since resuming operations following the original shutdown. Our most popular tours are still our Welcome to Washington tour and and our DC at Night tour, both of which have largely been unaffected by restrictions. Many of the participants on these tours in recent months have come to DC from all over the United States, traveling for various reasons involving work or family. We have been delighted to offer tours to them and we will continue to do so as more visitors come to Washington.

As circumstances have been in flux we have been able do what we do best: arrange private customized tours with nimbleness and creativity. Despite the reality of closures we have been able to arrange meaningful multi-day tours, focusing on what is open and worthy to explore.
New Experiences of DC for locals
We look forward to a full reopening and a robust return of retail business and travel. It will occur incrementally over time, and vacation travel will be mostly domestic this year. So we call upon local travelers within driving distance: even though you might have been to DC before, come experience one of Washington’s hidden gems on an off-the-beaten-path tour. As we move forward in 2021 a focus of this blog will be a return to local travel. Our tour guides have been working hard on expanding the depth and breadth of their knowledge of Washington DC and the vicinity. Some will be sharing what they have learned on upcoming blog posts, and we encourage you to join them on a private tour in the coming weeks and months.
