Vera Medici Private tour guide in Washington DC, New York - United States of America

Vera Medici

Guide profile:

I am an independent Tour Guide officially licensed by the city of Washington, D.C. I am also a member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, DC. For six years I have been informing and entertaining visitors from across the country and around the world about the sights and history of the capital of the United States of America.

I love working with visitors of all ages and groups of all sizes, and can gear any tour towards the special needs or interests of my guests. Of course the most-requested tour is of the Monuments, Memorials, and other famous landmarks of Washington, DC. I also specialize in tours of Arlington National Cemetery, African-American history, military history, the historic Georgetown neighborhood, Old Town Alexandria, VA, and more- just ask! I can also help arrange museum or landmark reservations, meal vouchers to make your visit run smoothly (not including travel plans, such as hotels and flights).

Tour minimum 3 hours, but hours and prices may vary based on peak season, transportation needs, size of the group, and type of tour. The daily rate is based on 8 hours, but my availability for tour times is flexible beyond "9 to 5." (I'd appreciate it if you would please email me before you book! Thank you!)

**Please note: Despite my last name, I do not speak any Italian at all! Sorry :-(

See you in DC!

Great family adventure with vera in DC !

She showed us all the things we wanted to see on our first visit to DC and provided us with valuable tips about shopping etc..

We did a long hike the first day, but it was worth the effort. Very good idea was to send us to the air and space museum at the airport on our departure day.

Thank you very much !

Vera was so TERRIFIC!!! She listened to what we wanted and took us exactly to those places!

Vera has a great knowledge of Washington and we would highly recommend her. When we return to Washington we will definately want Vera as a guide! If Vera is available on the day you need a guide, you would be so lucky to have her !

Vera did an excellent job preparing for each memorial and kept us on a tight schedule. We had to be at the White House at noon and managed to get all the memorials seen in time. Very nice job.

vera is a great tour guide, we had a great day seeing all the sights of washington, she was prompt, polite, and knowledgeable. Though we were pressed for time, vera made sure we saw everything we wanted to and providing us her transportation was an added bonus! I would highly recommend vera to anyone that is planning a visit to our nation's capital.
