This is a fantastic walking tour of the monuments. Tim is entertaining and informative. It's one thing to wander around and see the monuments. But with this tour, we learned a lot about the symbolism, history and people behind them. I'm the history geek in the family and made my husband come with me. But we both really enjoyed the... More

We've taken a lot of walking tours through the years and this is the best by far! Tim brings history to life with his entertaining and informative behind the scenes, "making of the monuments" stories. We learned so much (and enjoyed the process) that we never would have discovered on our own. Snack and bathroom breaks were helpful, as others... More

I wasn't too sure my kids, ages 9 & 12, would be interested in this tour but Tim made every point on our journey come to life for them. Advice: sunscreen, sunglasses, great shoes, bottled water, snack or two. Would highly recommend!!!!

This tour review is way overdue - it got overlooked somehow. We joined Tim on his Monuments tour in early June and enjoyed it immensely. The information given and stories told by Tim brought the monuments to life making them so much more than the materials they are made from. Having snack & bathroom breaks factored in made the tour...

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
