I did tour with Tim the first weekend in September. It was a great choice. Tim was informative, friendly, funny and the tour was at the perfect pace considering the heat of the day. I learned an incredible amount about American politics and history of war as well as about Washington in general. Fabulous. If you are around on a... More

It's all been said just adding my 2 cents worth. From start to finish a great tour you will miss so much if you don't do this tour and learn so much more than reading guide books.

As said before this walking tour is a must -really interesting background to the memorials in DC and stories you may not find in the books. Tim is an engaging and knowledgable guide. I would definitely recommend including this in your holiday.

I won't go into too much detail as Tim's tour already has hundreds of reviews for you to peruse. However, I will say that this has been a highlight of a four day trip to Washington D.C. Tim is an endearing character. He spoke at speed in an almost wild stream of consciousness, often reminding me of Doc Brown from... More

We had one day in Washington DC and seeing it was our first time we did not want to waste time finding places. So we did the morning walk with Tim which covers a lot. He is a very nice person and an excellent guide, he really knows his history and some other facts and he tells it so that... More

We had a short trip to DC and wanted to get in as much as we could. We had heard great reviews about Tim and this tour so we decided to join him. We were NOT disappointed. The tour lasted about 5 hours, and it went by quick! He explained everything so thoroughly which is what we really loved. You... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent 2 nights in Washington, as part of a tour of the East coast. Due to our limited time, I did quite a lot of pre-planning to ensure we could maximize our time. When I came across the reviews for this tour, I was stunned by the amount of positive comments and thought that it... More

We went on this tour following recommendations from Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Tim is an amazing tour guide and very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. We took the 3 hour + monument tour on one of the most humid and hot days of the Summer. Tim made sure we all had water and took us into the... More

Tim is very easy to listen to and has many interesting facts on hand. It was an excellent introduction for me on my first visit to Washington. Best tour I've been on in a long time. Highly recommended.

The walking tour with Tim was a very memorable experience. His love for education and teaching shine bright as he engages all those on the tour. We had walked the mall in the previous days leading up to his tour and it was so enjoyable for someone to explain numerous small unknown details that are not visible to the casual... More
