Become a neighborhood guide for WalkingTown/BikingTown DC

Have you been around Brightwood and/or Ward 4 for a long time? Do you have extensive knowledge of your neighborhood, as well as a deep desire to share that knowledge with others? Cultural Tourism DC is seeking tour guides and ride leaders for WalkingTown DC and BikingTown DC. According to Cultural Tourism DC, "Tour Guides lead walking or biking tours and share their expertise and passion with residents and visitors while promoting and gaining new audiences; Ride Leaders partner with tour guides to lend their group riding expertise and ensure a safe ride for all." Guides work with Cultural Tourism DC staff in order to develop their tours' routes and content.

More info from Cultural Tourism DC:

This year Cultural Tourism DC is trying something different for WalkingTown DC and BikingTown DC. Instead of offering one spring weekend and one fall weekend of 100-plus free guided tours, we are expanding the event to 10 days in the fall: September 23 through October 2.

Most tours will take place on the two weekends: Saturday/Sunday, September 24 – 25; and Saturday/Sunday, October 1 – 2. But the new format means we also will be able to offer weekday tours, for example during lunchtime and after work, and possibly offer visits to places/buildings that might be closed during the weekend.

If you would like to volunteer as a tour guide, please download and complete the 2011 WalkingTown DC and BikingTown DC Tour Participation Form, and submit it to Helen Gineris by Tuesday, June 28.

If you have any questions about completing the form or about the event, or if you prefer a form in Word format, please contact Helen Gineris at 202-626-1148.
