What a fantastic start to our stay in Washington! Our daughter had done this tour in December and highly recommended it. We learned so much from Tim and saw several beautiful memorials. If you walked around them unguided, you would never know the significance of each one. Highly recommend the tour, but be sure to wear comfortable shoes and have... More

We had a group of about 20 and Tim was so accommodating for everyone. He spoke loudly and clearly and he definitely knows Washington DC history. He also made it entertaining with pop quizzes, insider tidbits and snacks. My mom and I learned so much , we were talking about it long after the tour ended. Wear comfy shoes and... More

(1) it's free in principle... Which makes you feel so good since you pay what you feel it is worth... Considering how much normal tours cost.. We tipped 20 a head and still felt like it was inadequate based on the high quality of the tour (2) if someone made a movie about the monuments... Tim would be director producer... More

My family signed up for the water front tour first. We enjoyed it so much we came back for the Monumental Stories Tour. Tim is entertaining, knowledgable and thoughtful. My kids stayed right with the tour and enjoyed trying to answer the questions Tim posed as he engaged us all. At one point another tour guide was near us, and... More

We took our grandsons, ages 12 & 16, on our first day in DC. It was a perfect way to set the stage for our visit. Tim's knowledge, enthusiasm and courtesy, clarity and patience were awesome. Tim was loud enough for everyone to hear and took special care to make sure everyone in the group could hear what he was... More

Our family took the walking tour and were very entertained with Tim's wealth of knowledge and his knack for entertaining the audience. The walk was very doable, the sights fantastic, and the experience recommended for all. If you do anything in DC, do the Walk of the Town tour...and tip well! Tim deserves it!

We had a great time today. The tour lasted more than 4 hours and we were not far from 50 people. Fortunately Tim has a great loud voice and everyone could hear. His facts are very interesting, especially on the Vietnam and Korea memorials. He managed to keep all of us interested for hours. I really recommend this tour

I do feel that everything that needs to be said about this tour has been in the numerous great reviews that this tour has had. But I did feel that if I did not write a review then it would be an injustice to Tim and the great time we had with him on our first day in Washington. The... More

We took the 4 hour tour around the National Mall. Tim had tons of information. He kept the group together and entertained. His attitude, style and information were all top notch. Highly recommend!

This is an excellent tour of the major memorials in the National Mall. Tim is funny and keeps the group engaged with little trivia questions. I was very touched that even though the tour is free, Tim actually stocks snacks for the group in his backpack. The tour is long, but we made 2 bathroom stops and we were able... More
