Rick Snider

I'm a native Washingtonian who's a lifelong journalist and third-generation tour guide. And oh, I'm related to Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth and co-conspirator Mary Surratt. You'll hear the inside stories when touring Washington with me. Besides the Lincoln assassination, my tours include Lafayette Park by the White House and the Kennedy homes in Georgetown plus Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, my favorite place in the world.
