Programma

This is a walking and history tour that walks the complete outside circumference of the gated portion of the White House. Prior to 09/11, as a former White House staffer, I could simply show my ID and take visitors in for a tour. That perk evaporated on 09/12/2001, and inside tours must be requested through a member of Congress. An external, walking tour is the next best things to a tour inside, with my sharing features of major rooms in the White House, the West Wing, and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where my office was when I worked at the White House.
In addition to the history of the building and stories about some of its occupants, you get the perspective of a former White House staffer who worked for two US presidents and on the campaigns of two candidates who did not win the presidency. I have met every president who has served during my lifetime, from FDR through the current president.
The meet place is outside the White House Visitor Center, on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets, NW.
The walk begins by passing through the recently dedicated National World War I Memorial, and proceeds past the Sherman Monument to the Ellipse on the side of the White House, with stories, photographs, and opportunities for questions.
Continuing toward the official front of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we pass the first headquarters of the America

I was born in Savannah, Georgia, and grew up on a family farm near Baxley, Georgia. After getting an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and Oxford University, I took an entry-level job at the US Senate, followed by an entry-level job in the JKF White House in 1961. With frequent assignments as a note-taker sitting in on meetings President Kennedy and later President Johnson had, I often saw the Presidents more often than my bosses.

Another assignment entry-level staffers also got was giving tours of the White House to special visitors.

Although I never got a promotion, I looked forward to going to work every day; however, when I left the White House staff, I got a quantum-leap-promotion, going back to the US Senate where I have been an entry-level staffer to a powerful Senator, I returned as Chief of Staff.

Daniel is very knowledgeable about everything DC he has been living there for over 60 years. Next time I make it to DC I will be sure to reach out and get him to do another tour.

Utterly disappointing tour of the White House exterior. There were about 6 minutes of interesting stories drawn out into 93 minutes of irrelevant, mind-numbing, repetitive filler. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!

I was disappointed. Lots of standing in one place looking at pictures and listening to stories. There wasn’t a lot to see. Daniel said he thought Carter was a bad president but had no criticism for other presidents, including Trump. He quietly mentioned that Trump had walked to St. John’s church, but did not explain why.
