This is a walking and history tour that walks the complete outside circumference of the gated portion of the White House. Prior to 09/11, as a former White House staffer, I could simply show my ID and take visitors in for a tour. That perk evaporated on 09/12/2001, and inside tours must be requested through a member of Congress. An external, walking tour is the next best things to a tour inside, with my sharing features of major rooms in the White House, the West Wing, and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where my office was when I worked at the White House.
In addition to the history of the building and stories about some of its occupants, you get the perspective of a former White House staffer who worked for two US presidents and on the campaigns of two candidates who did not win the presidency. I have met every president who has served during my lifetime, from FDR through the current president.
The meet place is outside the White House Visitor Center, on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets, NW.
The walk begins by passing through the recently dedicated National World War I Memorial, and proceeds past the Sherman Monument to the Ellipse on the side of the White House, with stories, photographs, and opportunities for questions.
Continuing toward the official front of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we pass the first headquarters of the America

I was born in Savannah, Georgia, and grew up on a family farm near Baxley, Georgia. After getting an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and Oxford University, I took an entry-level job at the US Senate, followed by an entry-level job in the JKF White House in 1961. With frequent assignments as a note-taker sitting in on meetings President Kennedy and later President Johnson had, I often saw the Presidents more often than my bosses.

Another assignment entry-level staffers also got was giving tours of the White House to special visitors.

Although I never got a promotion, I looked forward to going to work every day; however, when I left the White House staff, I got a quantum-leap-promotion, going back to the US Senate where I have been an entry-level staffer to a powerful Senator, I returned as Chief of Staff.

A White House Tour with Daniel is an absolutely must have when visiting DC with or without kids! His personal stories, punctuated by his wonderful personality, make the White House come alive as if you were actually there.

The host is very knowledgeable and loves to answer questions. He gave us a thorough run-down of the White House and had a lot of great stories to go with it.

Daniel is a great tour guide. He has great knowledge of the White House. He was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Would love to do this again when it’s a bit warmer out!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely experience on Daniels tour. I loved hearing all of his stories from his experiences in and around the Whitehouse and seeing the pictures of the inside. This was such a unique experience I'm so happy we had the opportunity to meet Daniel and go on this tour.

Daniel was a fantastic guide--personable, extremely knowledgeable and a super host to not only the White House but to DC as a whole going all the way back to the Kennedy administration!
