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!

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.

Great, engaging tour with Daniel! He kindly extended the tour as we were so intrigued with his storytelling. I’d be honored to tour with him again.

Great stories and a unique experience! It was Halloween night so the streets were a bit crowded and at times it was difficult to hear Daniel’s detailed stories. However, he is so witty and talented that we were entertained each moment nonetheless. It would have been fun to have a had a follow up coffee just to hear even more from his treasure chest of outlandish encounters. Truly a fun DC experience! Thank you Daniel ;)

Daniel kindly agreed to accommodate us for a tour rather last minute, and we are so grateful that he did. The combination of embassy history, spy stories and architecture was very engaging, even for my teenager. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Daniel has so many stories and so much history to share. As you walk along Embassy Row, Daniel give you a glimpse behind the walls. From the Embassy of Romania to stories about an assassination attempts to Jonathan Pollard, there's a story for everyone.
