It was such an enriching experience! Tim shared his vast knowledge of the places of interest in an engaging and entertaining manner. We learnt so much in the 4.5hours, especially on the significance of the designs of the monuments. Really enjoyed it!

It's difficult to speak any higher of Tim and his Tour than what has already been said - you MUST go on this tour in you're in DC. We were there for 2 days, 10 days in America total and it was the best activity we did (even better than the Empire State Building). Found the tour through TripAdvisor (it's... More

Many other tour guides I've had should take a page out of Tim's book. He's engaging, entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. The tour ran around 4.5 hours and every minute was well-spent with fun facts and jokes, considering everything we covered was within a mile radius. There were 2 perfectly timed bathroom/snack breaks. The tour is free (donation-based) and super worth... More

1- You should take this tour. This was a 4 1/2 hour in depth tour of the White House, Washington monument ( outside of both), WW II, Vietnam, Lincoln, and Korea monuments. Tim did a great job, incredibly knowledgeable and fun. What a great business model, you pay in tips ...Tim is not afraid of the pressure this puts on... More

I can't speak highly enough about my tour with Tim. This was the absolute Highlight of my Washington DC vacation. His knowledge both about the town and the specific things on the tour. I would put this tour up against any walking tour I have done anywhere in the world. Thanks TIM !!

Today on my first day in Washington DC I joined Tim's tour because I had read all the excellent reviews and it lived up to the hype. It was one of THE most enjoyable and informative walking tours I have taken ANYWHERE. The information provided was both informative and entertaining and Tim frequently referred to biographies of famous people providing... More

Tim has a knack with people and is so incredibly knowledgeable. I had such a rewarding and entertaining time. I highly recommend this tour. It was 38 degrees outside and I wouldn't hesitate to go again in colder weather. We covered so many great sites and, even as a local resident, I learned a lot of a new things. Make... More

I decided to take Tim's tour after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. I was going to be in DC on a quick business trip and had Sunday free before an evening dinner commitment. The weather was beautiful and I didn't want to be inside. Walking around seemed like a great idea. Tim has great stories and knows his history.... More

We read the reviews, and decided to take a walking tour of the monuments with Tim. As luck would have it, we had a free day before we scheduled with Tim's tour, so we decided to go ahead and do the walk on our own before we did the "Tim Tour". You have no idea how little you gain from... More
