Τι θα κάνετε

Join me in exploring the hidden history of the White House neighborhood, Lafayette Square, and its most unusual events and personalities. As part of this tour, you’ll learn about the biggest scandal in Washington's history, which toppled an entire presidential Cabinet.

You’ll hear stories you won’t hear anywhere else, including: the hidden symbols within the White House's architecture, spies who operated from the Square, the wildest parties in presidential history, the murder of a District Attorney by a Congressman, the enslaved woman who ignited a Civil Rights revolution, deadly duels between military officers, the tragic death of America's first female professional photographer, the untold stories of presidential assassinations, the nation's first and little-known civil war, where the CIA and the space program were founded...and more!

Host is a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide and we enjoyed the tour. I couldn't give 5 stars because: The description we signed up for on airbnb was for meeting in Lafayette park and hearing about the white house, while what we got was a tour of oak hill cemetery. Also, I did not feel safe because host didn't wear mask, another guest didn't wear mask, another guest wore their mask under their nose, and social distancing was neither encouraged not enforced. Anyone thinking about signing up for his tours should use eventbrite or his website, and be aware that Covid precautions are not encouraged or enforced.

I'm a history buff and have been on more tours than I can count in both the US and Europe. This was one of the best I have ever experienced. Not only was our host, Edward Moser, a subject matter expert, he was a superb story teller. I thought I was fairly knowledgeable about "White House intrigue" but I left with a dozen topics to do further reading on. I can't recommend this tour enough.

Ed is the penultimate Historian and Tour Guide. I have wandered about in many countries and used local tour guide services and he is simply the very best. Engaging, articulate and all around entertaining from start to finish. A true Historian who loves storytelling and sharing his wealth of knowledge. I’m now a dedicated Follower after just one tour! Thanks a million Ed for a wicked good time!

I’ve been on Ed’s events before and he never disappoints. So knowledgeable about the history and a great storyteller. It really helps being on the sites where it actually happened.

Edward really knows his stuff, and I consistently got the feeling that, if there had been time, there were so many more details he wanted to give about each story. I really appreciate listening to people who understand their subject matter so well. It's easy to get swept up in it! You will truly enjoy this experience.

It was a cold tour (the wind!), but Edward kept us moving and we were even able to dip into a hotel to get warmed up as part of the tour. That was a bonus. He really told us some magnificent stories and made the history of those old buildings come to life. Shameless plugs for the book actually inspired us to buy a couple as gifts for friends and family. Would highly recommend.
