See Embassy Row through the eyes of an expert

An exceptional tour. Carolyn gave us not just an expert's architectural perspective but mounds of fun and interesting facts and stories. A really unexpected bonus was that she somehow managed to arrange our stop in front of the Turkish ambassador's residence with him coming out for a jog and he invited us in for a spontaneous tour.
We will definitely arrange another tour next year.
Fantastic DC tour of Embassy Row
