Looking for the Lost Symbol in Washington, DC
Gilt-Edge Luxury Tours and Travel International has begun offering public bus tours of the Lost Symbol, the fastest selling novel in American publishing history, by Dan Brown, and soon to be made into a major Hollywood film starring Tom Hanks.
The first tour kicks off on Saturday, June 30th from 9 am to 2 pm. Participants must first register at www.lost-symbol-
Thereafter, tours will take place twice monthly beginning in July. The tour follows the plot within a 5 hour time restraint and features all the main venues mentioned in the book such as the House of the Temple, the US Capitol, the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art, the US Botanical Gardens, Freedom Plaza, the Washington Cathedral, Franklin Square and the Washington Monument.
Also discussed will be the history of the Freemasons and the founding of the United States, their grand design for the Federal City including the Sacred Architecture of the City, and whether Secret Societies still hold sway in Washington, DC. Work has already started on the upcoming film production of the novel which takes place entirely in Washington, DC, with HBO screenwriter Danny Strong writing the film treatment and Tom Hanks reprising his role as hero Robert Langdon for the third time. While a firm timetable for the actual filming yet has not been determined, tour participants can get a head start by visiting the venues showcased in the film before production finally gets underway and having an adventure of their own.
Complete information on how to sign up for the tour is available at the website, or call 1-800-208-4113 to speak to a live person or email tourbookings@
