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.

My friend and I did a tour with Daniel. He is such a good storyteller and full of fascinating knowledge. He really makes the events of the past come alive. Even though I grew up near DC, I still learned so much about Embassy Row and the history of espionage. Daniel was easy to find and a helpful communicator. I will be recommending this to others!

Daniel was an awesome host. The tour was just me as a solo traveler and he was very tentative with any questions. I learned a lot about the history of DuPont circle and Embassy Row and how spies played a role in the history. He told a lot of stories about specific spies from historical to modern day. Daniel is such a warm and kind person (also with a LOT of experience working in DC!) it was a pleasure to spend an afternoon with him!

I took this tour while visiting a friend in DC and we both really enjoyed it! We didn’t read the description closely enough so misunderstood it wasn’t a tour about spies/the CIA but instead it was a tour about the history of embassy row and people who lived there. The neighborhood we walked in was beautiful and our host Daniel was super fun and engaging. While the tour content wasn’t what we expected, we were beyond appreciative that Daniel catered the tour to us and the other family in the group, and he went out of his way to answer all of our “side” questions about his experience working in DC and his connections with former spies. I’d highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in politics/international affairs/espionage.
