Our family of 6 with kids ages 17,15, 13, and 8 joined Tim and seven others this past weekend. Although the weather was a bit brisk, the sun was out, we bundled up and put on our walking shoes for a 4+ hour tour. It was truly excellent. Tim had a deep knowledge of the monuments and DC in general.... More

We were only'in Washington for about 24 hours, so we decided to take a tour to make the most of it. Tim's 4.5 hour tour was fantastic, informative, engaging and fascinating. He has a real passion for it and it shows. We enjoyed it immensely.

My husband and I did this great walking tour with Tim with our 20 and 18 year old sons. It really could not have been any better! Tim is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and also has a great personality. He made the tour fun, educational, and quite enjoyable for all of us with the inside stories and... More

Returned to Washington DC after a previous visit over a year ago and decided to go on the Monuments Tour again with Tim bringing additional family members this time. Tour was just as entertaining and informative as last time. Be prepared to walk 4-5 hours with several stops on the way and learn things about history you wouldn't get if... More

We joined Tim for his Monumental Tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour due to the Tim's vast knowledge of all the monuments visited and the fact that saw monuments we probably wouldn't have visited otherwise. This tour makes a good alterantive excursion away from the National Mall.

The Washington Mall is an incredible place and can only really be appreciated with information and explanation. Tim, our tour guide, gave us a wealth of information in an entertaining way. The four hours flew by. It was a highlight of our trip to Washington.

My first trip to D.C. and I couldn't found a more perfect Walking Tour. WALK of the Town covers so many attractions. I almost missed the tour because I was at the wrong location. Please see website for exact meeting time and place. It was a free walking tour with our most knowledgeable guide, Tim. The tour is free but... More

Tim is very knowledgeable and tour didn't feel 4 hrs long. My 6, 7 and 10 year old had no complaints either. He's also very engaging and loves to answer questions.

Wow, what a fantastic knowledge Tim has of DC, thanks for an insight to the wonderful city.

Excellent, slow paced, walking tour of the important monuments around the Mall. Even though I have visited Washington multiple times before, I learned new facts about the City and its history, as well as philosophy behind the design of the newer monuments. The tour is free and he works for tips only. A very worthwhile way to spend around 4... More
