About David Elliot

With a deep rooted passion for our nation’s history and an insatiable appetite for studying and understanding everything that makes our country great, David Elliot is a rare find among public speakers and tour guides today.  David is a licensed professional D.C. tour guide who leads everything from walking tours, bike tours, to private and large group tours.  David continually strives to go beyond “just the facts” of history and successfully weaves together historical data with the not-so-well known stories of our rich heritage.  David challenges his groups mentally and presses them to go beyond the surface level to a truly deeper understanding of our Nation’s Heritage.

David resides in Northern Virginia with his wife Holly.  They have four grown married children and four wonderful grandchildren.  When David isn’t speaking to a group, on a tour or studying history, he enjoys spending time with his family and speeding along the many trails of DC on his bike.
