Washington DC Holiday Lights Tours

We’ve brought our popular holiday lights tour from Georgetown to Downtown to bring local history and holiday light displays.

DC Holiday Lights

We explore two neighborhoods on these 1.5 hour tours with small groups.

Georgetown History & Holiday Lights Tour

We’ve partnered with the Georgetown BID to offer a special evening Historic Georgetown tour that brings you the history through the holiday window displays of Georgetown businesses and restaurants.

This unique way to learn about the art and the neighborhood itself. We’ll explore the industrial and some of the oldest residential parts of the neighborhood by the water and along the canal.

Note: We will view the above sites and homes from the street and will not be entering any residences.


Our own tour guide Canden has published a book on the wicked side of Georgetown history! Wicked Georgetown: Scoundrels, Sinners and Spies  and a pictorial history using vintage photographs, Images of Georgetown.

Check out our audio tours before or after your visit!
