Što ćete raditi

Come learn about some of the Spies that lived in operated in Georgetown in the WWII era. These movers and shakers influenced pre- and post- war policy, and played friend and foe alike to the Soviets. Learn more about the origins of the CIA, the persistent tension between CIA and FBI, and spies who sold U.S. and Soviet secrets. We'll visit the former homes of William "Wild Bill" Donovan, William Colby, Roald Dahl, and Alger Hiss and see places linked to the espionage activities of Elizabeth Bentley, Vitaly Yurchenko, and today's top spies. We'll talk about Cold War-era games of smoke and mirrors between the U.S. and the Soviets. Do these games continue to play out in current U.S. - Russia relations?

Along the way, participants will be asked to put on their spy hats and consider the role of surveillance in an operative's daily life. Hear (cleared) insider stories and discuss other themes like: Becoming a Intelligence Operative; Being Female in the Intelligence World; Teaming with Outside Agencies to Advance a Common Mission and; HUMINT in a Tech-centric World.

Hi. I'm Rosanna, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I'm a 15-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations and bring this experience to bear in my spy-themed offerings. Visitors will be treated to an insider's perspective (and stories!) while exploring and learning more about the espionage history of Washington D.C.'s neighborhoods and landmarks.

I'm also a lifelong resident, licensed tour guide, and member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington D.C.

Welcome!

Gdje ćete biti

This 1.5 hr walking tour begins in northwest Georgetown and crosses over Wisconsin Ave. to northeast Georgetown and then south towards M Street. We spend most of the tour away from the hustle and bustle of Wisconsin Ave. and M Street, in quieter neighborhoods that have remained timeless. Please note we will end at Martin's Tavern on Wisconsin, away from the starting point.

Rosanna was excellent in story telling and picking up great locations just in the right amount. Was a great walk around beautiful Georgetown.

Great tour with interesting vignettes about area residents. Could be useful to familiarize one's self with names and hi-profile spy cases of the Cold War to have better context of the tales being told. Regardless, the neighborhood and history are pleasant and the guide's knowledge of the subject matter make for a relaxing yet educational walking tour.

Great experience and great tour, my husband and I were the only guests, so our tour was very personalized to fit our needs. I didn't understand too much about the spies and whatnot, but my husband found it very entertaining. She gave us a lot of recommendations on where to eat and where to go, so we appreciated it.

Rosanna is a fantastic tour guide, storyteller, and weaves her own CIA experience into the focus of the tour's narrative, WWII-era spying in Georgetown. Unearthing a clandestine side to Georgetown that is densely covered in so many layers of history would impress even any DC aficionado. The tour is very accessible for walkers of all ages and I would highly recommend it to locals and tourists alike.

A great tour for DC locals and tourists alike. I had some background knowledge on spies, but it was cool to see what I've read come to life via the tour locations and Rosanna's stories.

Rosanna’s background and experience allowed her to give a unique perspective on spies, both US ones and foreign spies. She added stories about her experiences in the field that gave great credibility to the stories she told. Highly recommend!
