Embassy Row Walking Tour (Expert Guided Tour)

Price is $15 if you purchase in advance, $20 on site

Travel the world - in under two hours! Today, we'll explore one of the most culturally fascinating area of Washington, D.C. - "Embassy Row". In a single afternoon, you'll stand at the borders of Ireland, Romania, Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, and more!

Someone said, decades ago, that in order to thrive as part of the Embassy Row scene, three things were needed: "protocol, alchahol, and geritol..." Fast forward fifty years as we take a walk along one of Washington's most famous grand boulevards- Massachusetts Avenue's Embassy Row. You will see some of the city's grandest homes, learn about the foreign governments that now call them home, as well as the scandals and stories of the residents who used to own them. Ever wonder if the curse of the Hope Diamond is true? Come join us and find out!

Join our expert guide for this incredible inside look into Embassy Row.

Afterwards, we will meetup in a local restaurant or bar for a friendly get together.

Suggested Attire: Casual

Directions: DuPont Circle.

Meet at the top of the escalator of the DuPont Circle Metro stop - NORTH exit.

    Dupont Circle and Farragut North metro stations are definitely closed (shuttle only). I'll be walking from Farragut West.

    We are still meeting at the top of the escalator of the DuPont North Metro. However, the metro may be out (see http://www.wmata.com/rail/trackwork.cfm). So, in that case, either please drive or take the Metro to Farragut North or Woodley Park.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
