Why a "Spy Tour?"




  • To visit some of the many sites in the Washington area associated with intelligence and counterintelligence over the past 200 years.
  • To examine the differing motivations of those who betray their country.
  • To explore the “Wilderness of Mirrors” of international espionage.
At first sight, an ordinary park in Fairfax Co., VA...but in reality, the site of the 2001 arrest of Robert Hanssen, the FBI counterintelligence agent who betrayed his country.

See for yourself how ordinary neighborhoods and everyday objects become the backgrounds and instruments of the spy world!

Note: All information contained in these tours has been researched in publicly accessible documents. Copies of the bibliographies used as background research are available to tour participants.
