Join me in exploring the hidden history of the White House neighborhood, Lafayette Square, and its most unusual events and personalities. As part of this tour, you’ll learn about the biggest scandal in Washington's history, which toppled an entire presidential Cabinet.

You’ll hear stories you won’t hear anywhere else, including: the hidden symbols within the White House's architecture, spies who operated from the Square, the wildest parties in presidential history, the murder of a District Attorney by a Congressman, the enslaved woman who ignited a Civil Rights revolution, deadly duels between military officers, the tragic death of America's first female professional photographer, the untold stories of presidential assassinations, the nation's first and little-known civil war, where the CIA and the space program were founded...and more!

I thought this was an awesome tour! I loved that Ed knew so many details about the duals and the “cool” DC scandals that had happened. Great tour!👍

Due to the fencing around the White House, this tour was relocated to Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown. The tour was informative and very interesting. Edward is an animated tour guide and you will enjoy hearing his stories about Washingtonians from years past. As a history buff, I enjoyed the stories. However, you should know that at the time of our tour, Edward told our tour group that he was under strict doctor's orders to not wear a mask (although he did tell the rest of us to wear masks). He did not wear a mask during the tour, except for a brief time when we entered the chapel. He was not speaking at that time. While he told us he would keep distance during the tour, that was not followed when he was telling his stories and was getting fairly close to the tour group. We all tried to keep our distance but he made that very difficult at times. We did not know this going in and we felt others should be aware before booking one of his tours. If you are ok with that and know it going in, then we highly recommend Edward's tours!

Host is a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide and we enjoyed the tour. I couldn't give 5 stars because: The description we signed up for on airbnb was for meeting in Lafayette park and hearing about the white house, while what we got was a tour of oak hill cemetery. Also, I did not feel safe because host didn't wear mask, another guest didn't wear mask, another guest wore their mask under their nose, and social distancing was neither encouraged not enforced. Anyone thinking about signing up for his tours should use eventbrite or his website, and be aware that Covid precautions are not encouraged or enforced.
