This tour exceeded my expectations. It is definitely one of the top things to do in D.C. In 4-5 hours, I have learned more about the city and U.S. history than I would have learned by reading Wikipedia all day long.Tim is extremely passionate, has a lot of knowledge and is very engaging. He could talk about the city and... More

We took this tour on a hot summer day and I was a bit worried about 40 people with 1 tour guide. NOT TO WORRY. The tour was wonderful. I've been to D.C. many times and Tim's knowledge and details about the many memorials we saw made them come to life and made me look at all memorials in a... More

As with most reviewers, I have to say this tour was excellent! Tim is such a great person and very engaging. He has a great sense of humour and balances that with facts and stories about landmarks and the people that helped shape DC. At one point, at one of the Vietnam Memorial statues, while Tim was giving us the... More

Allow at least 4 to 5 hours for this informative and historical perspective of DC. I have been on many tours in DC, and this by far was the best. Tim had an amazing way of engaging the group of about 40 people and had so many facts on the memorials and monuments. If you enjoy history, this tour is... More

This should be the first thing you do when you get to DC. Wonderful tour. Took this tour with my Mom and we both loved it. It is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes and be prepared with water and snacks. Tim does stop for breaks. He was very informative and easy to hear.

Tim the tour man is a walking encyclopedia of DC. We three were part of a group of at least thirty who assembled next to the White house visitors center at 10am. The visitors center opens at 7:30 and we toured it at about 8:30. Highly recommend it and it has excellent restrooms! Tim went around to everyone and introduced... More

Tim is an excellent guide that knows the stories and how to tell them. During the tour Tim took us to all of the important historical monuments and told us great small stories about each. What we mostly missed as tourists who are not that familiar with American history is an historical review for each of the sites (e.g. U.S.... More

The tour was great; very informative! Tim has a way of keeping your attention. Even young kids seem to be enjoying the information. He involves everyone in questions and answers. Great way to see a lot of things and info to go along. Would recommend this tour. We had a large group at least 30 and everyone seemed to enjoy... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the extensive tour of the monuments in spite of the heat. I would of liked to take the 2nd tour - but had to leave town.

Tim knew so many interesting facts about every site we went to -- both funny and serious. I've been a DC resident but never knew 75% of the details he told the group. He kept us moving and--a former teacher--showed reverence for the many memorials we saw and still kept it light and entertaining. Thanks, Tim!
