About Us





 George Ghiorghis

 Co-founder of Sam & Sal Tours

Hello and Welcome to Washington, DC!

As the first-generation immigrant from Eritrea, I have witnessed the term, "America is a land of opportunity". I arrived in 1981 and worked while I studied and graduated with a degree of Business Admistration in 1990 from George State University in Atlanta.

After graduation, I came to visit Washington, DC and I fell in love with the city and I decided to make it home.

Before I became a licensed tour guide, I worked as a concierge in one Washington's premier hotels and for over twelve years I worked with Big Bus Tours as a liaison with partners, concierges and customers. My responsibilities allowed me to have un-limited access to Washington museums, monuments and memorials.

I have been living in Washington, DC for more than thirty years continuously. My experience as a concierge, licensed tour guide and extensive experience in the tour business helped me gain knowledge of the history, culture and architecture of Washington, DC.

I am a proud member of Washington Area Concierge Association (WACA).

George, we had a wonderful experience last night, thanks to you and your knowledge of DC.   Can you please tell us, one more time - the name of the restaurant that's near the White House. The one that's been there for 40 years. Good food and good prices. Thank you.

Wow! SO very happy my husband and I chose George for our tour of DC. It was a rainy night tour and George is a plethora of information. Takes his time, knowledgeable and is courteous. Makes you feel like a long time friend he's giving a personal tour to. I'm romanticized by DC even more so now. Will absolutely return and take Sam & Sal tour again because there is just so much history to digest. Great!!!!
