You have got to take Tim's tour!! We went on the tour when we were in DC in early April and it was fantastic! Tim is so very knowledgable about the Monuments and Memorials. It was like one big history lesson. He's funny, kind and never political in the city of politics. He is a retired educator and has the... More

We just wrapped up our tour with Tim and needed to jump online to say how great of a tour this was. We took our family of four (two mid-40's parents, a 15 year old boy and 11 year old girl) and we all had a great time. The tour group was large, likely around 40 or so, but Tim... More

I was really looking forward to this tour, but at the three hour mark I'd had enough. Tim seems like a nice guy and he is definitely passionate about what he does. However, like another reviewer said, he could trim the fat from his spiel and cut down his tour to a comfortable 2 1/2 - 3 hours. He also... More

We found Tim's tour on Tripadvisor and he is as good as the reviews! We did both of his walks, the Waterfront Tour and the Monumental Tour. Tim, as a former Secondary school teacher, has a great voice and charisma. He told us so much information with enormous enthusiasm, really an excellent guide! We would recommend him to anyone visiting... More

Tim was an amazing tour guide! We had great luck with the weather so it turned out to be a perfect tour! We saw all the monuments while Tim gave very good explanation and even better anecdotes! A must in DC!

We arrived early thinking Tim would only take a limited number of people on his tour. Not so, as people continued to show up,he friendly greeted guest after guest. In the end we had about 50!! Did he make it work? Yes and very well I might add. Very informed and delivers info in an entertaining fashion. I would recommend... More

Went in to DC for the first time. Planned on going to the Vietnam War Memorial. Top memorial on my list. Stumpled onto Tim's group at the wall. Listened to him for three minutes and he totally had me, my wife, and our daughter. What he knows, his perspective, his sense of solemness, his sense of humor...simply wow! As others... More

OMG! Just the best tour. Tim was so full of enthusiasm had so much information and made it good fun. Be prepared though for a good four hour walk. Tim does make sure everyone is ok and does his best to make sure he finds as much shade as he can. I would recommend this tour to anyone thoroughly enjoyed... More

Tim was fantastic, enthusiastic and very knowledgable about all the monuments we visited. A 4 hour walk ended up being 5 hours but the time flew by. Lots of history and information a great tour. Without tims expertise we would not have learned so much. The only tour to do in Washington, D.C.
