Hi. I'm Rosanna, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I'm a 15-year veteran of CIA and have developed a series of spy-themed walking tours in and around Washington D.C. Treat yourself to an insider's perspective (and stories!) while learning more about DC's neighborhoods and landmarks.

Co-host Matt is a Boston native who has been living in DC for a decade and working as a tour guide for almost as long. Like most, Matt first experienced the world of espionage through pop culture, but has learned that truth is stranger than fiction...

Co-host Daniel is a highly sought after City Guide, Tour Director, and Educator who has welcomed visitors to DC since 1992. He's also Rosanna's Dad (!), and knows all of her secrets....or some, at least.

Join us as we expose those shadows hiding in plain sight on Embassy Row.

Welcome!

This 1.5 hr walking tour starts at Dupont Circle, easily accessible by public transportation. We walk up Massachusetts Ave. to Sheridan Circle, and discuss landmarks along the way. Here, we'll detour in Georgetown for a quick stop at a historic house and then circle back towards Dupont Circle, stopping over Rock Creek Park.

Daniel was one of the most knowledgeable and kind people my husband and I have ever met. He told the best stories, was patient with our 1year old on the tour, and was so thoughtful that he packed umbrellas (and it just so happened to rain). My husband and I aren’t from the area and lost our car while the tour was coming to an end. Daniel went into the rain and stayed with us for almost an hour while we searched for our vehicle-what a noble man! This tour was awesome! And meeting Daniel was proof that good people still exist. Do yourself a favor and book this tour.

Daniel was a great host! He showed us a lot of cool houses on embassy row and told stories that I probably never would’ve learned without this tour.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it is because of this trip that I will definitely book more walking tours for my future travels. The architecture and setting of embassy row is just beautiful and amazing and the stories that go along with it really help the history come to life!

We had an absolute blast with Daniel. As someone who lives in the area, this was a great experience to take vistors that we all could enjoy. These stories were so engaging and Daniel was happy to answer all our questions and share his personal experiences. I would love to book another tour and will reccomend this to anyone looking to for a new twist on the city and a chance to meet some fun people!

Daniel is an AMAZING and well-knowledged tour guide! He clearly is passionate about his DC city and history, and I really appreciated how he found ways to connect with each of the participants. For example, when I introduced myself at the beginning of the walk I mentioned that I work in theatre and interested in the characters a spy might take on in their work, and he found a way to reconnect with me on the tour when he was talking about one of the spy stories of a "flamboyant" spy. I found Daniel to be charming and very reputable. I'd highly recommend this tour!
