Excellent Intro Tour to African Art Museum

Great way to tour the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. Emmanuel Gogo, a native African now living in DC, had a great depth of knowledge, not only about many of the art pieces in the museum, which he showed and explained to us, but also about the contexts in which the art works, and sometimes craft works, arose and thus could be better understood. We found his guidance to be not only art historical but also anthropological. Highly recommend him.

Great day at the Tidal Basin!

I found Diane's group tours on EventBrite and Meetup.com. I had such a wonderful day exploring the Tidal Basic with the group! We toured all the monuments and listened to presentations from the Park Rangers. Most in Diane's group live in DC and attend several of her tours, so everyone was very friendly and some knew one another from other events! Can't wait to join some of her gallery walks and theCapitol tour too! Diane is so sweet, responded to all emails and texts, and a great D.C. Local to tour around with!

Renaissance and Impressionism Tour

Stephen Mead was a wonderful tour guide. He showed the group a nice variety of Renaissance artwork and a few pieces by Impressionist masters. He is very knowledgeable about the paintings he presented, and he had a great sense of humor, too. I highly recommend a tour with Stephen.

Private Old Town Alexandria tour

The tour guide was friendly and knows a lot about the sites we visited. She also was very considerate and polite, and I could tell that she enjoys her work. This is my second tour with this company, and I will definitely use them again for tours.

About Us


I am a native Washingtonian that grew up in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood. Both of my parents are artists and have exhibited their work in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. You may find my father’s work nestled in several locations within the Smithsonian Collection. I have had a fondness of going to art museums, art galleries, and historic homes since I was a small child. I have always felt that when one goes on vacation you must include an art museum, art gallery, and historic home in the itinerary, and if not, you haven’t then you haven’t visited a place.

One day around October 2013, I decided to complicate my life with creating a company that gives adventures for creative tourists. Our mission is to bring more people to the art museum for an enjoyable experience of a great tour. Hence, our tours are really crafted for all levels of art education. We know that you may have arrived with someone that doesn’t appreciate the museum, and just wants to be entertained. So, we are going to entertain you. Don’t expect to learn how a painting or sculpture was put together- we will only refer you to the museum’s program. We do want you to have two hours of your time fly by faster than expected.
