This walking tour was the best part of my 3 days in DC. Tim was knowledgeable, walked at a good pace, gave us info about the area (i.e. Washington Monument tour, best cafeteria inside a Smithsonian, Circulator bus route, other monuments to visit). I was on a tour that easily had 40 people, including young kids, and he was incredibly... More

Arrived in DC and sent straight on the The Waterfront Walk with Tim. He was excellent. Managed to keep four very weary travellers engaged and interested. He was informative, interesting and amusing. Whilst a walk round the Potomac flood basin may not sound interesting, Tim made it just that. There were plenty of background stories, facts and figures to support... More

This is a great experience. Tim is most welcoming and pretty funny as well. Filled with information and humor, great combination. The walk is long but not hard. Lots of stopping. The fact he relies on tips is testimony to his confidence to deliver. Make sure you give him a decent tip, a couple of locals giving him $5? Please?... More

We were a huge crowd - 75 folks compared to a normal group of 10-15. However, Tim managed to herd the cats effectively. His knowledge of the memorials and their meaning is excellent. Bring snacks and water with you.

Tim has given this tour countless times. But i felt like we were his most important. That is TIm's strength and his passion for what he does is easily what makes this tour the best and most valuable event we participated in during our trip to DC. It is a rather long walking tour, our weather was perfect, but if... More

My teenage kids were unsure about doing 4 hours walking, but Tim was great and the time flew by! His stories are interesting and full of information. Now they are wanting to learn more American history! For Aussies that's saying something!

This was an absolutely fantastic tour. Tim went out of his way to make the tour highly informative, jam packed and fun. He showed us round lots of the major memorials in a respectful interesting manner. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone in DC, it was a great introduction to the city.

This was my fourth trip to D.C. and I vowed to have the trip I had always dreamed of: a walkabout. Tim met us on the corner, at the appointed time. Our group went on a hot and humid walk through history. We heard lots of gossip, saw lots of cool stuff and had a super time. Yes, we gave... More

Tim brought to life in his narration all the monuments we saw. Without his explanations and background history you are just looking at stone statues. As a first time visitor to DC it is a brilliant way to getting an understanding of the rich cultural history. We particularly loved the Vietnam memorial - very moving. Be warned your feet will...

Tim is a masterful storyteller and has obviously done his homework. You'll learn more from him on a tour than you ever would on your own. It helps that he's a retired teacher. We did the monumental sTOURies tour w/ our daughter and my father. The tour was about 4.5hrs long as we strolled through the National Mall visiting the... More
