Polly was a wonderful guide and opened my eyes to so much of Georgetown’s history, beyond showing the art pieces part of the seasonal GLO exhibit. She did so despite weather challenges, and I’m incredibly grateful for her tour!

We live up to our "rain or shine" motto some tour dates ore than others. Your tour date was one during which rain prevailed over shine. Thank you so much for braving the weather. As you experienced, our intrepid guide Polly shines under any and all conditions! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

Clearly the "Georgetown Waterfront GLOW" walking tour did not meet your expectations. That's too bad. We certainly appreciate you giving the tour a try. (Note that our walking tour company has no control over which artworks are lit well--or lit at all. Nor do we control the information about the artwork that is provided by each participating artist.) -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

The tour was actually a special one of the temporary artwork installed throughout Georgetown over the holidays as part of the temporary Glow exhibit. The tour guide had illuminating remarks not just about the artwork but tied bits of history in as well. He did an excellent job.

You wouldn't believe how many native Washingtonians have an experience similar to yours, Julia. Even with decades of life lived in our nation's capital hometown, they discover a new aspect of the city during one of our walking tours. Than you for joining us! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks
