Carolyn and Sam of DC Design Tours are two history buff architecture nerds with a passion for story telling!

Carolyn is a former architect and life-long lover of all things brick and mortar. She prefers to talk about buildings than draw them. The District has been her home since 2006, and when not guiding, you can find her counting columns at the National Building Museum (there are 152) and traipsing through Rock Creek National Park.

Sam is an enthusiast for architectural design, history, and talking a mile a minute. Originally from the Bluegrass State, he's a full fledged Washingtonian now.

Christine is a trained architect and longtime DC local. She's worked on projects at the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, and other famous Washington landmarks!

Nerede olacaksınız?

We'll begin in the namesake of the neighborhood, Dupont Circle. Strolling down Embassy Row, we'll take in the lavish mansions of Washington's Gilded Age elite, discussing politicians, society ladies, diplomats, and captains of industry. Past Woodrow Wilson's post-presidency home, down the Spanish Steps, to the home of FDR, and a local landmark neighbors have dubbed the "The Hobbit House". We'll wrap up outside one of the best hidden gems in DC.

This was an amazing tour and we would highly recommended to anyone visiting the DC Metro area. Our guide Sam was very well informed about the area and a wonderful storyteller. His sense of humor was spot on and we laughed out loud several tones throughout! We were smiling the whole time! Thank you Sam!

It was interesting to learn about the origin of the homes of embassy row and what led to current ownership. My tour was led by Christine, and I appreciated that each stop on the tour addressed not just the history of the home but also the architecture. She also did a good job of keeping us in the shade on a hot day.
