DC Design Tours

DC Design Tours offers historical walking tours of Washington DC with a focus on architecture, urban planning, and design. Experience an insider's look at the design of the District, on and off the National Mall. Explore some of Washington's most prominent architectural marvels and best kept secrets, while hearing about the conflicts, controversies, and personalities involved in the development of our Capital City. DC Design Tours conducts walking tours of six distinct neighborhoods in the Capital: the National Mall, Capitol Hill, Federal Triangle, Dupont Circle & Embassy Row, Georgetown, and Columbia Heights & Adams Morgan. Private customized tours are also available upon request.

DC Design Tours was founded in 2015 by former architectural designer and lover of all things brick and mortar, Carolyn Muraskin. Carolyn left her drafting desk and started touring so she could talk about buildings rather than draw them. Carolyn is a graduate of the University Of Maryland School Of Architecture, and has lived in the Washington area since 2006. All of our guides have a design background, and are intensely passionate about the architectural history of Washington. From neoclassical to brutalist, come learn the history behind the brick and mortar through one of our design focused walking tours!
