Great time! Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. She had many great anecdotes about the embassy buildings and mansions in the Dupont Circle area. The weather was great too.

Great Embassy Row walking tour by Victoria this morning. I live two miles away and drive this route almost every day but never fully realized the rich and fascinating histories behind these architectural jewels. Ideal way to spend two hours on a Saturday morning, strolling

Response from washwalks, Owner at Walking Tour On Embassy Row in Washington DC
Responded 31 Oct 2019
The reward of walking instead of driving,right? Thousands of locals and visitors have happily whizzed past the gorgeous collection of houses the comprise "Embassy Row" (Massachusetts Avenue, NW). It's actually not a bad way to get a feel for that part of D.C. But nothing compares to being in the company of Victoria and hearing about how those palatial residences and their owners arrived in the nation's capital. Thank you for taking the walk! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

Although our Guide was well versed on the history of many of the former mansions in the area and some of their interesting occupants, there was minimal information on the various embassies, why they exist and how their existence is a benefit to us. After the detail about the
