Washington, DC has a reputation as a wheeler-dealer city where billion-dollar contracts and political alliances are sealed in smokey bars, boardrooms, and diners hosted by power brokers in swanky Georgetown townhouses. On this tour, go down memory lane of scandals past, discover the secrets, lies, and backstories behind DC congressmen, journalists, military men, and politicos throughout history - from Capitol Hill to the Judicial Branch and the FBI straight to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. You will trawl the haunts associated with some of Washington’s greatest scandals, rumors, indiscretions, and media storms. Examine the phenomena of 'Fake News,' the tenures of Presidents past and present, and ask yourself if you would make yourself at home in a city where politicians seem to be a revolving door of residents. Book your tickets today!
