This was a fantastic tour! Tim has lots of knowledge, a strong clear voice, and makes sure everyone is doing well. I am in a power wheelchair and he always made sure I knew where the accessible entrances were. You will not regret taking this tour. Thanks again Tim!

We enjoyed a beautiful Easter Sunday walk with Tim. He shared unique insights and stories about Washington's history and the memorials in an entertaining way. Perfect for our 1st visit to Washington DC!

This tour was a great way to see many memorials and learn heaps of Washington history. It was a 3 hour tour and it didn't leave anything out. I was shocked about how much Tim knew about Washington history we didn't go one minute without learning something new. Every tourist visiting Washington should definitely do this tour. It goes from... More

So glad that we found this walking tour opportunity. We made our plans to come to Washington and only knew that there was a cherry blossom . We found Tim's tour only a few days before. What a pleasure it was to have such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide to show us many of the important and significant sites. He... More

Tim is an expert on Washington history and happy to share it with everyone on his tour. We had a party which included children and the elderly and it was easy going for everyone. I cannot express how much any tourist to Washington needs to do this tour. We went in thinking we had a bit of knowledge but Tim... More

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
