The Madams in DC tour gives you a perspective of DC's history that you won't hear anywhere else.

Hard to imagine, now that it's lined with monolithic government buildings! You'll learn about how the women who worked in these brothels made their way in life, and even had an impact on affairs of government. Tour is held on alternating Friday mornings and evenings.
