DC Tours and Transportation
Norvel Wood is a native Washingtonian who began working in the travel, tourism and transportation industry over 40 years ago. He held progressively responsible positions with major transportation companies before founding Washington DC Tours & Transportation (DC Tours) in 1994. When tourism in the nation’s capital experienced a significant drop immediately after 9/11, Norvel’s response was to form business alliances that allowed him to expand his services into major cities in the U.S. In addition, Norvel transitioned DC Tours into government contracting, first with the Department of State and later with the Department of Defense, as well as national nonprofit organizations. In an effort to bolster his government contracting, he began providing transportation to elementary schools and major corporations. With his success, Norvel continues to advocate for the Veteran community by donating profits of his business to area Veteran nonprofits.
