Qué harás

Enjoy a walk through the scenic Georgetown neighborhood with a former CIA officer. Learn about the role the residents here played in the WWII era. These pre- and post- war influencers played friend and foe alike to the Soviets. Learn more about the origins of the CIA, and the life of an operative shared through curated (and unclassified) real-life stories. We'll visit the former homes of William "Wild Bill" Donovan, William Colby, Roald Dahl, and Alger Hiss and see places linked to the espionage activities of Elizabeth Bentley, and Vitaly Yurchenko.

Along the way, participants will be asked to put on their spy hats and consider the role of surveillance in an operative's daily life.

This tour is great for groups and teams!

Hi. I'm Rosanna, a member of the Atlas Obscura community, and 15-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations.

Dónde irás

This 1.5 hr walking tour begins in northwest Georgetown and crosses over Wisconsin Ave. to northeast Georgetown and then south towards M Street. We spend most of the tour away from the hustle and bustle of Wisconsin Ave. and M Street, in quieter neighborhoods that have remained timeless. Please note we will end at Martin's Tavern on Wisconsin, away from the starting point.

This was a wonderful way to spend 90 minutes in Georgetown learning about intelligence history, key players, and Rosanna! The walk was through a charming neighborhood, and the stories tied the tour together. Would highly recommend for any history fans, DC natives, or tourists hoping to learn more about Georgetown's history.

It was a great walking tour with Rosanna, and a fun way to know more about George Town. Rosanna told many interesting spy stories both me and my son enjoyed.

Great tour with George. The kids loved the start of the tour and meeting signal. Lots of detail in the stories and appreciated the first hand perspective. Would recommend to those interested in spies and learning how Georgetown played a role in spy history.

Rosanna was an interesting and engaging tour guide and shared great tidbits of information at each destination of the tour! I also got a better sense of what the neighborhood of Georgetown was like during the pre- and post- World War II era. I loved that she also offered YouTube, documentary, and reading recommendations so that we could learn more about the key figures she mentioned during the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour for people who are visiting DC for the first time and who are overwhelmed with all there is to see in DC!
