What you'll do

Mystical Washington DC awaits, via hidden gems you won't find in a guidebook, like the powerful sculptures of a Native American chief in urban Rock Creek Park, or the city views from a cathedral resembling Notre-Dame. Look up from the tourist crowd outside the castle-like Miller mansion to see a ceramic cat in honor of the feline friends aboard a navy commander's ship, then dart to the White House crowds to see a bench where a Wall Street fat cat waited to be summoned by Roosevelt. Next, marvel at the dainty carvings of Native American artisans in a hidden shop, followed by a visit to the famous sculpture of Albert Einstein (with insider info, of course). Pose outside an abandoned technicolor cathedral, before seeing the original Lincoln Memorial - who knew!

Where you’ll go

With a DC host who knows what's up, travel along a secret route, underneath a bridge in an urban jungle decorated with Sioux chief sculptures, or at a breathtaking viewing spot at the National Cathedral. Dart to tree-lined Massachusetts Avenue where a hidden cat keeps an eye on the city, before strolling to Lafayette Square north of the White House, home to a late millionaire’s beloved hiding spot. Stroll along the diverse city to a haven of Native American artistry, then visit "stars" often missed in a grove of trees tucked in the southwest corner of the Academy of Sciences. On Delaware Avenue behind towering trees hides a cathedral with a twist, splashed in a multitude of colors, then head to Indiana Avenue, where the original statue of Lincoln poses. 

    • Channel the Secret Service on a mystical, top-secret mission along the most magically hidden spots of the city, like an abandoned cathedral dunked in color.
    • Skip the White House tourist rush to bask in the beauty of a nearby park, from a bench once frequented by a presidential insider.
    • You've heard of the Albert Einstein monument but see its nearby milky way of stars often missed.
    • Visit shops off the tourist track, brimming with dainty carvings by Native American artisans.
    • Your secret adventure doesn't have to end there - your host knows the best under the radar spots to try on the rest of your trip.
