Carolyn and Sam of DC Design Tours are two history buff architecture nerds with a passion for story telling!

Carolyn is a former architect and life-long lover of all things brick and mortar. She prefers to talk about buildings than draw them. The District has been her home since 2006, and when not guiding, you can find her counting columns at the National Building Museum (there are 152) and traipsing through Rock Creek National Park.

Sam is an enthusiast for architectural design, history, and talking a mile a minute. Originally from the Bluegrass State, he's a full fledged Washingtonian now.

Where you'll be

We'll begin our tour on the grounds of the breathtaking National Cathedral, one of the largest churches in the USA. We'll explore the nooks and crannies of the grounds, stroll through the Bishop's Garden, and stop for pictures at a beautiful weeping cherry tree. Then it's into the neighborhood of Cleveland Park, walking down tree lined streets past historic mansions and stately homes. We'll wrap up just off locally known "Cherry Blossom Lane".

Carolyn was a fantastic guide - offering a range of interesting stories and facts from the history of the Cherry Blossoms and current horticultural practices to history of the monuments we visited (alongside funny current stories about the monuments and visitors). Carolyn was also incredibly personable and made me feel welcome and comfortable.
