Established fifty years before the Capital, Georgetown began as a gritty port city on the banks of the Potomac River, described by Abigail Adams as a "dirty little hole". Despite its modest start, Georgetown is now home to palatial mansions, elegant cemeteries, stately churches, and a world-class University. We'll explore the highlights and secrets of DC's most exclusive neighborhood, discussing architecture, history, scandal, and more. By the end of the tour, we'll see Georgetown's full transformation in this rags to riches tale.

I have a deeper appreciation for DC

The Georgetown Architecture Tour and the Embassy Tour were excellent! What made it extra special was the in-depth knowledge of our tour guide. She not only knew tons about the architecture and the area but also knew so much about the history and backstory of every building. I have lived in The DC area for over 20 years and learned something new at every stop!! I can't wait to book another tour with DC Design! Totally enjoyable.
Had a great time

The guide was great! I don't know a lot about architecture nor Georgetown and it was nice learning a lot about both! Great opportunity to appreciate some history.
Worth the time and money

Sam was incredibly knowledgeable. He was personable and fun without being corny. Well worth the money. Highly recommend.
Delightful DC Design Tour of Georgetown

We loved our walk with Sam B.- he’s a terrific guide with knowledge about the history and architecture of Georgetown! He even emailed me the night before to confirm. And best of all- he’s energetic and really funny! We met at Baked and Wired- a delicious bakery and easy to find. Our group of 10 had an enjoyable 2.5 hrs walking in a light rain with Sam telling us so many interesting stories. It’s a great way to see beautiful neighborhoods, the canal system, Georgetown University (although we didn’t get to tour the campus), and downtown with plenty of shops and restaurants to explore. I would highly recommend this company and look forward to booking future tours.
Lovely tour

I like the house which Jacqueline Kennedy purchased and lived in it shortly after the assassination of president John F. Kennedy in 1963 and pink house blocks away from Georgetown University.
