Phenomenal tour!

This was an absolutely phenomenal tour! I’ll definitely be back to explore the other tours they offer. Carolyn was knowledgeable, friendly, and just such a pleasure to learn from. She shares fascinating, little-known fun facts and stories, and she’s also just great at inserting humor into her tours. I highly recommend this tour!!!
Awesome Experience

Our guide Sam was fantastic. His knowledge and passion of history really shined. DC Design Tours is great. I highly recommend this tour and others and they add so much to the sight seeing experience.
Awesome tour with a really knowledgeable and nice guide!

Carolyn is warm and personable. She told stories about the monuments that were full of interesting tidbits. Her iPad was full of great historical photos that helped us understand the origins of many of the monuments. We all loved it (5 of us aged 2 years to 68 years). Bring your walking shoes and water ... we had a stroller, too. There's no way we would have learned as much or had so much fun without Carolyn's great tour!
Excellent tour - that kept teens enthralled throughout!

We had a wonderful afternoon tour. Sam was a wealth of information shared through stories and details that kept our two teens enthralled over the 3 hour walk. We learned a lot and felt so lucky to have seen so much! Thank you Sam!
Super fun night tour of Monuments

We had a large group - Sam Bowersox had us all engaged at every monument. Each talk crafted very thoughtfully, he kept our interest with humor, stories and a pace that challenges the brain to keep up!

Thanks Sam for your excellent tour.
