Let us show you D.C. like no one else can!

We are truly thrilled that you are considering a trip to Washington, DC, and even more so that you are considering David Elliot Leadership to show you around.

David Elliot Leadership was founded in Arlington, Virginia in 2008. Since then we have logged more than 2200 tours of the Washington, DC sights and attractions since 2008.


George Washington once famously said, “I can truly say I had rather be at Mount Vernon than to be attended at the Seat of Government by the Officers of State and the Representatives of every Power in Europe.”

And we can truly say, we would rather be leading a tour at Mount Vernon than being attended to by those Heads of State. There’s just something about walking where Washington walked.

And there’s just something about a visit to Washington DC!

Come, let us show you the Monuments and Memorials in and around the Nation’s Capitol; or walk you through the hillsides of Arlington, our Nations most hallowed grounds, where we bury our honored veterans, and their families. Maybe visiting one, or several, Smithsonian Museums, with a stop at the National Archives, to gaze upon our founding documents, is at the top of your “must sees.”

Or perhaps it’s a tour of the Library of Congress where the movie National Treasure: Book of Secrets was filmed, and where we house just some of the more than 150 million objects that are a part of the largest library in the world, is what you’re looking forward to the most.

Whatever is on your list, and whether you’re looking for a walking, limo, bike, or bus tour, we are here to help. So look left, click on a link, and let’s get planning.

When should I book the tour?

So people ask, how far out should I book a tour? And our response, “It will never be too early to book a tour.” Now, for those of you who like to just “go with the flow,” we do too. We love not having a hard schedule when we vacation. After all, that’s what vacations are all about.

But, we do have folks who  book more than a year out, and others who call about a tour tomorrow. Guess which one usually has the best chance of getting the tour they want?

So by all means relax and enjoy your visit to Washington. But if you’d like us to be a part of your visit, and we assume everyone would, please give us as much head’s up as you can …and still feel relaxed.

What People are Saying:

Your tour was a much talked about event for the weekend. We all enjoyed it so much. You have a great way of communicating information. Great sense of humor and lots of patience. I learned so much about Arlington and even used some of what I heard from you when speaking to those who came for the interment on Monday. We have your card and will surely call on you again should we have a need. Thanks for a job well done.
