Hi. I'm Rosanna, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I'm a 15-year veteran of CIA and have developed a series of spy-themed walking tours in and around Washington D.C. Treat yourself to an insider's perspective (and stories!) while learning more about DC's neighborhoods and landmarks.

Co-host Daniel is a highly sought after City Guide, Tour Director, and Educator who has welcomed visitors to DC since 1992. He's also Rosanna's Dad (!), and knows all of her secrets....or some, at least.

Join us as we expose those shadows hiding in plain sight on Embassy Row.

Welcome!

I really enjoyed the tour. The tour took place in an area of Washington DC that I have never visited. I enjoyed seeing all the embassies and I enjoyed hearing the tour guide talk about history that I found to be interesting.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our experience and learned so much from Daniel. Also, very easy to communicate with Rosanna and Daniel.

It was a nice tour of the Dupont/Mass Ave area. We learned about architecture and some associated spy stories. Daniel was very eager to answer any questions we had.

It would be nice if we took the time to introduce ourselves to each other at the beginning of the tour and explain what attracted us to sign up for the tour.

Do this! What a fun way to get a different experience of our capital city, and to have a first-hand experience to talk to a former CIA operative. Rosanna brings years and years of background to the tour and is very welcoming with questions you may have. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience. Daniel is a wealth of knowledge and did a great job of storytelling the history. I would not hesitate signing up for another experience next time I am in DC.
