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

Took the Monumental Stories tour with my wife on 2nd September having found the tour on the web and read the reviews on Tripadvisor. The other reviews are not wrong. This was the best walking tour we have ever been on. We had a mixed group of Europeans and Americans and Tim made everyone feel welcome - he was entertaining... More

Tim the walking tour guide make me so at home even though I was on my own and non-American. He is extremely chatty, friendly and knowledgable about the city's history and its unique querks so we had a great 4 hours touring with him. He goes at an ambling pace so it's not too rushed and fits all the major... More

This was one of the most insightful, informative & fun tours I've ever taken. Tim provided a lot of history come alive as you see the sights. I appreciated his knowledge about the city without offering any spin. I will rate this as one of the highlights of my trip. Well worth every penny!
