After reading other rave reviews upon our arrival in DC, my husband & I jumped at the chance to get some exercise (moderate, easy pacing tailored to each group) while being both informed & entertained by this dynamo of a former teacher/counselor! In spite of rainy morn, we dragged ourselves out of our warm (& dry) motel, took Metro to... More

We arrived at the stated meeting on a very wet easter Friday morning and wondered if the tour would still go ahead, however after a few minutes a few more travellers arrived and then Tim jogged across the road and greeted us all with a cheery smile, rain what rain! This store is fantastic, Tim is a great guide, from... More

Tim’s tour was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone looking to do a walking tour of the National Mall. Tim is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and an entertaining tour guide. We were able to catch his tour during the Cherry Blossom Festival. The city was packed and difficult to navigate but Tim was incredibly considerate of everyone on the... More

Tim was knowledgeable, funny, and kept the tour moving. He did a great job telling all the back-stories and made our trip to DC even more special than it could have been without him. It added so much to the experience to have the symbolism, symmetry, design and history of the important monuments and memorials explained. Tim has great energy... More

Skip the buses and bikes and be engaged by Tim on this wonderful walking tour of the monuments. Tim is extremely knowledgeable and mixes his tour w/ interesting trivia and stories. What likely sets Tim apart is his genuine concern for his guests. TIm took time to walk up and say hello to almost everyone before the tour started. He... More

As a couple of Brits Tim made us feel very welcome on the cherry blossom walk - finally with blossom! He is knowledgeable, interesting, passionate, humorous and has a wonderful ability to captivate an audience of all ages. All the memorials are stunning but meant so much more when illuminated by Tim. The 4 hours sped by and the extra... More

Entertaining informal 4 hour tour of all of the important sites on the mall. Tim had so many "inside" stories and facts that kept us amused and laughing. This was a great way to see the sites with a limited amount of time in the Capital. Great guy and would highly recommend this tour!

Tim was a funny, knowledgeable guide to some of the iconic memorials on the Mall and the history of Washington DC. The tour focused on the three war memorials (WW II, Korea, Vietnam), the Lincoln Memorial, and the new MLK Memorial. He engaged everyone on the tour and it was clear he loves his city and loves introducing it to... More

Our group of 7 (including 3 kids) took Tim's tour this past Sunday (Easter). Tim is an awesome tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about everything in Washington DC. His tour was chock full of interesting information- so much of which we could have never learned on our own. Don't be discouraged about the distance of the tour- it was... More
