Fun, informative, and a great walk

A fun and informative walk, learning about the history of the neighborhood. Often runs a bit long, not that I complained.

We did the Embassy Rows tour. It was a short walk, we did lots of stopping and talking about certain areas so don't worry about it being straining. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a lot of information on the history of the buildings. I guess we were expecting a bit more on the actual buildings themselves, in terms... More

Took a 2 hour walk around Georgetown. The tour guide had a great passion and own personal historical research into all the stories told, from the kennedys and famous tales, architectural quirks, nature, humanity and societal practices of the past. Georgetown is one of the best tourist attractions of DC and a break from museums and museums

This walk was Embassy Row, but it covered a lot of DuPont Circle. Not a lot of walking, for those looking for an easy walk. The guide gave a lot of great historical back ground. She made one feel like they could understand what was happening during the time period. She included pictures of some of the house interiors. We... More

An opportunity to learn about historic features to our very special monuments. The walk at night was spectacular.

My 16 year old daughter and I took a walking tour called "Memorials by the Moonlight." I'm a DC native but there is always something new I can learn about the city I love. Our guide, Paul McLane, was excellent. The group was small (7 people - which I love) so it was easy to hear what he was saying... More

Even though it was a rainy day in Washington and no one but us showed up, we had a wonderful time on Jim Everett's Capitol walking tour. Jim is so knowledgable, and even though we've lived in the area for a while, we learned a ton. I would definitely recommend this tour to both locals and tourists alike!!

You are hereby awarded the Walking Tour Gold Star for showing up to take the walk in the rain! (We really mean it when we say walks take place rain or shine.) Glad to know that you consider it time well spent. When he's not leading walks of the U.S. Capitol campus, many a Sunday morning you'll find Jim in... More

Knowledgeable guides, great mix of history and politics -- we did the Bloomingdale tour and was great to learn about individual homes and residents and the role they played in the civil rights movement. Tour started on time (+10) and guides were friendly to chat with.

The turnout for the new Bloomingdale neighborhood walking tour was . . . tremendous! All of us involved were gratified to observe the enthusiasm for and curiousity about this Northwest D.C. enclave. Guides Brian Kraft and Sarah Shoenfeld did an excellent job. Thanks to positive feedback from participants like you, we will offer it again next season! Glad you could... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable, and made the tour fun. He even had some pictures of former residents, etc. so things were in context. Loved seeing the old neighborhoods houses from General LaFayette to Madeline Albright...and everyone in between. Lasted about 2 hours or so, and could have kept going.

"Lasted about 2 hours or so, and could have kept going." If that isn't the nicest sentence to read in a Trip Advisor review, I don't know what is. Thank you very much for attending the walk and for sharing your experience. It was a pleasure to have you along! Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks More
