An unexpected pleasure "en français" for longtime residents and newcomers alike!

I really enjoyed the tour of Georgetown that I took with Catherine and I find myself thinking back on it often. Even though I have lived in Washington, DC for over 40 years, I learned so many new things and feel like I really saw the neighborhood up close, like an inhabitant would after spending a lot of time there. Catherine deftly mixed historical tales with real estate tidbits and unexpected insider information about the buildings, residents and customs of Georgetown. It was also so much fun to speak French with the other participants and see this fascinating part of the city through their eyes!
Fun and informative tour!

I took my students on this tour to learn something about the capital IN FRENCH! It was an amazing experience, they loved it! Marie is a knowledgable and entertaining guide. Every moment of this two (a bit longer) hour tour was fun and informative. I highly recommend it to French speakers, but also to French learners!
Découverte historique conviviale et humaine à recommander sans hésitation !

Catherine nous a guidés avec beaucoup de naturel et de connaissances claires sur les pas des présidents. Ses explications sont concrètes, vivantes, ponctuées d anecdotes historiques, locales, personnelles qui rendent l échange très convivial. Au-delà d une magnifique promenade, cela restera un très beau souvenir dont nous remercions vivement Catherine.
Je recommande fortement.
Visite en français formidable.
