Spies of Washington Tour

Welcome to Spies of Washington Tour®

The political capital of the country, Washington, DC is also the "spying capital" of the country. Since its earliest days, Washington, D.C. has been the scene of international intrigue, espionage, and intelligence activity, as the U.S. government has tried to learn the plans of other countries while keeping its own plans secret. International focus has been on the White House and the US Capitol, but there are "spy sites" in all parts of the city. The spies coach tour and four spies walking tours will highlight drop sites and locations of clandestine meeting places, as well as the homes and offices of both those working against the interests of the US, and those protecting our information security. Throughout the tour, the psychological motivations for "why people spy" will be discussed in their historical context.
