Start your day in Georgetown, the oldest section of Washington, DC. Originally an independent city founded in 1751, Georgetown has since become a staple location in D.C. Renowned for its Federal-style architecture, Georgetown is a thriving shopping, residential and entertainment area. Driving through Georgetown, you will see glimpses of famous homes as Tudor Place, Dumbarton House, the Old Stone House, Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and its gardens. You’ll also get to see the home of John and Jackie Kennedy before his Presidency. Finish up your time in Georgetown with a stroll along some of the quaint streets with your local guide, and maybe even attempt the “Exorcist Steps.”
After visiting Georgetown, your guide will take you down Washington’s Embassy Row (Massachusetts Avenue, NW) and point out notable Embassies.
Following your embassy tour, you’ll head over to the Potomac River with your own captain and sport boat. Forget those crowded tour boats coming and going on their schedule, with your personalized tour boat you’ll have the freedom to explore the city on your own terms. On the six-person boat, your captain will explain the history of the waterway and the sites along the way. If you’d like, we can provide box lunches, snacks or alcoholic beverages for an additional cost. Along with daytime cruise, we also offer sunset cruises, which offers a great perspective of the city.
