Fiat Luxe Travel is the culmination of a lifelong dream for founder Andrew Rawls. Andrew started traveling at a very early age, thanks to his maternal grandmother. When he was ten years old, he and his grandmother traveled to Egypt for a three week voyage designed to illuminate different cultures. From that moment on, Andrew constantly felt the pull of wanderlust. He spent a summer studying French in Nice while in high school, and when attending the University of California, Santa Barbara, he jumped at the opportunity to live abroad for a full year, spending his junior year in Paris studying at L’Institut des Etudes Politiques. While abroad, he was able to visit eleven countries in nine months. Every trip taught him something new and inspired his passion for travel all the more.
Fiat Luxe Travel is an all-inclusive travel agency, specializing in bringing guests to Washington, D.C. Capitalizing on his experience as a luxury tour guide since 2014, Andrew and the Fiat Luxe Travel team custom curate each group itinerary.

Award Winning Service
Fiat Luxe Tours DC was named the “Best Place To Take Out-Of-Towners” by the Washington City Paper for 2016 and 2017!
“A Fiat Luxe tour guide is like that rare teacher in grade school who brought passion and meaning to the subject. Andrew walked us through the crowded American History Museum while delivering a private lecture worthy of the finest university. We were so very enchanted that the crowds disappeared. My daughter and I will talk about our experience in DC for the rest of our lives. The value of having a seasoned, articulate, and entertaining guide is more than worth the reasonable price. What if a cast member of Hamilton would leap from the stage and walk with you among America’s actual treasures? That, to me, is the Fiat Luxe experience.”
“A guide from Fiat Luxe Tours took ourselves and 17 other people on a tour of the National Museum of American History…and it was amazing. What really struck us was the wide variety of tours they could have taken us on (dozens of customizable tours) and yet our guide still had intimate knowledge of the smallest, most seemingly insignificant artifacts in the museum (all of which turned out to be SO important).”
“I brought 100 high school students and chaperones to tour, and they handled it with ease. The guides were easily the best I’ve had with any school group, in any location across the Country. Knowledgeable, personal, funny, respectful; they were the whole package! I strongly recommend Fiat Luxe! It’s worth the price.”
“Andrew gave us an awesome tour in DC this summer! We had a limited window and Andrew packed amazing monuments, excellent dinner recommendations, and history of everything as we went along, plus additional bits of background information of people, sites, that you can’t read in a book! Andrew made the tour lots of fun and also provided transportation as needed to make smooth transition between locations which made everything even more enjoyable! Thank you so much for your insight of Washington D.C.’s history and an unforgettable memory!!”
