As all of the other reviews state, Tim provides a depth of information that's spot on, delivered in an engaging way that makes it really stick. One paramount thing both my son and I came away with: Tim gave us an impassioned, respectful and caring vision of each memorial. These were not just stone structures - he brought their meaning...

I do agree that Tim is a super guide and very knowledgeable but the tour is a little long..... It could really be cut down by a few hours and still be worth it.. My husband and I are both teachers with 5 kids ages 9-17 and even we found our attention waning....

First of all, Tim was amazing! His energy, his knowledge- top notch! In planning our trip, I was looking for a walking tour that would hit all the highlights on the mall. We would be traveling with a 9 y/o so seeing a 4 hour walking tour I was a little hesitant but we were so happy that we chose... More

Tim was near-perfect, bringing to rich life the monuments and other sites we saw. He at least tripled the amount of time my 12 and 14 year old daughters would normally have paid attention to politics and history (he wisely threw two pit/snack stops in). We (adults too) learned an enormous amount and enjoyed every minute of it. He was... More

On the recommendation of a good friend, my wife and I did the Walk of the Town today (Sunday). We began at 10am and were finished at 2:30. Not only did we see the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Monument, the White House, The WWII memorial, the Vietnam and Korean War memorial, and more, we learned SO MUCH about all of... More

Tim was a very knowledgable guide that had been recommended by friends who visited Washington previously. My 14 year old daughter, husband and I were impressed with everything we learned. Tim gave us lots of interesting information that we would not have known had we done the walk on our own. We took the tour on the first day of... More

As first timers to DC, our concierge suggested Tim's walking tour. With 2 teenage boys in hot humid weather, we were afraid that we would not last the 4.5 hour tour duration. Tim is a one man show but his personal style and local knowledge kept everyone interested. He kept us in the shade mostly and added humorous anecdotes to... More

My 22 year old daughter and I had a wonderful time walking around the monuments with Tim! He knew such fascinating facts and stories about each one. We learned so much history today from this passionate and remarkable tour guide. We plan to take his other tour next time I visit! I can't rave about it enough!

I spent a thoroughly enjoyable 3 1/2 hours+ with Tim as he provided an educational and entertaining walking tour of the Washington DC monuments. Highly recommend this well-paced informative visit of the nation's capital.

We took the walking your last week in sweltering heat! It was so hot that we thought we would possibly do two hours maximum, but Tim, as an ex-teacher, was an excellent guide; intelligent, informative with a good sense of humour and we managed to last the full four and a quarter hour tour. Although advertised as 'free' one is... More
