We took this tour on our first visit to Washington. Tim was an excellent guide and had lots of information as well as interesting anecdotes. It was almost 5 hours in the baking heat but everyone stayed to the end which is testament to Tim. Definitely recommend checking this out!

Excellent guide, with a lot of knowledge and passion for what he does. To be honest, I don't have much knowledge of the history of the United States, and yet, I found Tim's explanations very interesting, combining piquant stories about US presidents throughout history. All along the tour Tim was attentive to the needs of the group, and gave us... More

Tim did such a fantastic job during our tour. If you want to experience DC the right way, you have to go with Tim. He goes to most of the hot spots and explains everything with enthusiasm! He is extremely knowledgeable and goes at a perfect pace for everyone.

Tim is extraordinary. He captures your attention, provides wonderful histories, and gives a fascinating tour. It was the best tour of the nation's capital that I have ever had. If you go to DC to see the monuments, you must see them on his tour!

Today we did the "Walk of the Town" with Tim. We had a wonderful walking tour visiting the WWII memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and the Korean War memorial. Tim was an excellent guide - knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and fun.

Tim was very knowledgeable and gave us a great walk. Very engaging and relevant history of the sites. We were tired at the end of the long 4+ hours walk but it was well worth it. Be ready for a longish walk specially if you have children with you.

I had read reviews, and thankful I did! My husband and I were on the second leg of our vacation. Tim is very knowledgable and brings what you're viewing to life. He knows the area very well and gets you in the shade when possible. He also knows the tell-tale signs of what is going on in regards to the... More

As two Aussies doing a 12 month road trip around the States we decided to have three nights in Washington DC. There is just so much to see here and probably two weeks would allow you to see most of the major sights, but having only three days we had to choose what to do. Trip Advisor had great reviews...

Tim is fantastic! He really knows his stuff and really engages the group with questions through the tour. He knows the situation from years of doing these tours. For example, he recognized several area signs around the White House grounds that the President would be leaving on Marine One soon, and assembled us below the South Lawn and sure enough,... More

This tour was very interesting and full of detail and fun facts about each site and the background of the city. The tour guide is very antimated and kept everyone's attention. The only negative about the entire experience was that it was very long about 10am-3pm. It was a lot of walking but well worth it. Loved the experience and... More
