Tim Stewart is such an amazing tour guide. We learned so much from him about the monuments in Washington. Highly recommend him. Well worth a great tip since he doesn't charge.

This was an excellent experience that covered much of Washington D.Cs cultural and political history. Tim was a fantastic tour guide that was passionate about his craft. He was engaging, and made the tour relevant with his knowledge of many sites including the Whitehouse, Lincoln memorial and Vietnam memorial. A great way to see and learn about DC, with many...

We had a lot of fun with the guide. We learned a lot and he had no problem answering any of our questions. If you are in DC and want a really great guide to show you the city go with him! Its a lot of fun.

My first trip to DC and taking this tour was a no-brainer given the great reviews on TA. However it exceeded my expectation. Tim is a great guide and amazingly informed. He speaks with great passion esp when it comes to war memorials. The tour started on the corner of 15th St and Penn Ave and ended near the Korean... More

This tour is a great overview of the top outdoor sites in Washington DC. Tim is friendly, funny, and informative. You never feel rushed during the tour, and you also never feel like there is too much information. We really enjoyed all the history and anecdotes that Tim offered. It is a long tour at almost four hours, but well... More

Tim, the leader, was a fun, informative host of DC. He is a wealth of information and talked non-stop through most of the walk. Much of the walk was around the war memorials and from the Washington Memorial to the Lincoln Memorial. Tim was funny, insightful and politically neutral. You won't be sorry on the Walk of the Town.

Tims your was the perfect way to explore Washington. It was fun, interesting, and easy to understand. The only things a missing were a close look at the Washington monument and the "new" MLK memorial.

Glad I Tim's instead of more organized one. Tim kept what could be the daunting 4 hour walking tour in a cold and windy day absolutely entertaining by keeping it friendly, light, and interactive. It wasn't just about the pool of knowledge he has about history and each sight, but rather how he presents each to you. Very well spoken,... More
