Það sem verður gert

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!

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.

Edward was a great host with exceptional knowledge and passion for the topic, making the experience one of a kind experience definitely worth braving a cold DC day for.

Our tour guide gave us as a spectacular fountain of fascinating history. I thought I knew something about Lafayette Square, but my knowledge would only fill a thimble in comparison to our guides vast knowledge of in-depth details of the events that took place a Lafayette Square. Our guides passion for history and theatrical flair made the experience great fun.
