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 visit in Georgetown, head to the Hillwood Estate for a private tour. Marjorie Merriweather Post purchased Hillwood in 1955 and decided soon after that her home would be a museum to inspire and educate the public. Her northwest Washington, D.C. estate endowed the country with the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia, a distinguished 18th-century French decorative art collection, and 25-acres of serene landscaped gardens and natural woodlands for all to enjoy. On this private guided tour, let your guide share stories about the captivating life of Marjorie Post and walk you through the thirteen acres of exquisitely maintained formal gardens.
During your tour a stop for lunch will be scheduled.
Please not that private tours will not be available on Mondays
