Make this your top priority and build around it. Try to do it earlier in your vacation if possible. We did it on a day when it was VERY cold and we just couldn't leave it was so amazing. It is 4 hours so be rested, fed, hydrated and bring whatever else you need for 4 hours out on the... More

I went to DC with wife and 10 and 8 year old kids directly from Colombia (very long trip). Tim's walk tour was one of the mayor highlights of the visit to DC. We learned a lot, he makes it all very interesting and fun. He puts passion on what he does and that is contagious. Highly recommended!

There is no better tour in DC. I can't recommend this enough. He knew everything there is to know about DC, and makes everything so interesting. He could tell when we needed a break from the cold, and even where to stand at the memorials to stay warm. He even brings snacks! I really can't say a single negative thing... More

Tim Steward gave our party of six an insightful walking tour of the National Mall in Washington DC. The detailed information he provided was extremely interesting and amazing. This tour was one of the highlights of our visit to our nations's capital. Tim Stewart's tour takes you way beyond just reading the plaques along the mall!!!!

I went to D.C. on July of 2014 with my wife and our two boys (8 & 4 years old). We took the tour with the help of just one stroller. I took my chances just trusting on Trip Advisor (thanks for existing T.A.). I love history and it was just a splendid experience having an expert on that subject... More

Tim was was absolutely fantastic, we could not have been happier with our experience of Washington after taking his engaging tour. We're so grateful for his advice and his insightful and entertaining tour of the nation's capital. We had only the one day to try and see so much and with Tim's help our day in Washington was amazing. Everything... More

This is a somewhat belated review. My wife and I took Tim's walking tour of the Washington Mall and Monuments in May 2014. A most informative, entertaining, and thoroughly enjoyable treat. We so enjoyed it, we took Tim's Tidal Basin walk a little later in our stay in this wonderful city. ( A personal thank-you Tim from us; and good... More

Our incredibly knowledgeable & friendly guide, Tim Steinert also has a booming voice so even our group of 20+ never had a hard time hearing. You are cheating yourself if you just walk around by yourself. I cannot recommend the 4 hour Mall & Monument tour and Tim more highly. My wife and 3, twenty-something children were thoroughly impressed!
