Strange Factor: Known for their keen sense of smell, dogs are the perfect companions to track down clues on this offbeat spy tour of our nation’s capital. Led by a retired intelligence officer, the Paws for Spies tour is packed with gripping espionage stories—some of which date back 400 years. Sometimes there are as many as 17 dogs per tour.
Highlights: From a secret tunnel under the Russian Embassy to tales of a mysterious American beauty who spied for the Allies during World War II, there’s a lot to sniff out on this walking tour.
