This tour was fantastic !! The cherry tree were in full bloom and starting to blow away. Tim has really done his homework. From WW II memorial to the Vietnam wall and Korea memorial the background of How and WHO and WHY it was designed that way. Extremely educational. My son learned more in 4 hours then he has in...

This was an excellent walking tour of DC. Tim is a fun and knowledgeable tour guide with a nice loud voice so even in our group of probably 30 people and all the crowds at the sites, it was never hard to hear him. He was aware of the group's needs for a few bathroom and quick snack breaks so... More

Thanks Tim - Washington DC makes so much sense after doing your tour. Everybody should do this tour and you should be charging a fee rather than just tips. We had two kids 9 and 11 and we saw and learnt so much in four hours. Take good walking shoes and lots of water - we couldn't buy it on... More

My wife and I came to DC for the weekend, her first time. I had planned on walking her through all the monuments on our own. Found this tour on TripAdvisor this morning and figured we would try it. Tim does an awesome job, tons of detail and good spirit, wants everyone to enjoy their time. Learned hundreds of details... More

Our family of 6 (+ grandma/grandpa) joined Tim's Cherry Blossom tour on April 3rd. Before the tour began, I was a little nervous about a 3-4 hour tour with three teenage girls and a 9-year old boy in tow. But Tim was amazing. He made the tour so informative and so interesting. The time flew by. He had so much... More

Our family of 4 absolutely LOVED this tour! We went on Sunday, April 6th. Can't say enough good things about it! Tim was knowledgeable, friendly, funny, engaging and this tour just flew by. It did not seem like 4 hours (we took the Cherry Blossom and So Much More tour). I can't imagine touring the Mall and monument area any... More

If you only do one thing in DC this is it. We also did a bus tour but it only stopped at 3 locations and the commentary was only average compared to what you get on this tour. Tim's enthusiasm and passion for his job made this tour. The Vietnam war memorial was very moving.
