Dan was an excellent tour guide. He enjoyed sharing all his knowledge about Georgetown and we had a great time walking around the neighborhood. We saw a whole bunch of Kennedy's houses, old girl schools, Georgetown University, beautiful architecture and quirky little houses. Dan new all the details and could answer almost any question. We had a great time and... More

We booked a tour of Georgetown. We've been to DC before but somehow never managed to get to Georgetown so we figured a walking tour would be good. Dan was great, plenty loud, animated, and seemed to know what he was talking about. He told some stories, some of which were true and others which he told briefly and labeled... More

I was in Dan's group for the National Mall evening tour and it was excellent! Not only did I learn so much, Dan was such a fascinating story teller that the stories really came alive. As I looked around at the others in my group (which had a lot of young kids), I realized that I was not the only... More

I organized a private group tour for a corporate event and found it very easy to reserve and email communication was extremely prompt. The day of our scheduled tour was absolutely pouring so I reached out first thing in the morning to see if we could reschedule to the next day and was told it would be okay if our... More

Our group of five children and four adults were exceedingly happy with our tour of the National Mall with Becca. She was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, including anecdotes and information that made each stop interesting and informative - even to the kids! Our only disappointment was that we had not booked any other tours with Free Tours by Foot during... More

We had a great time during our evening walking tour of the National Monuments and Memorials in the mall. Our tour guide (former Social Studies teacher) was incredibly informative and thorough and was great answering questions and providing some fun trivia. It was great tour and would recommend. If you prefer smaller more intimate/private tours this is not the tour... More

Steve, the founder and owner of DC by Foot, was an excellent tour guide. Both funny and informative, he is also very approachable and you can ask him any questions. This is a must for those who want to walk around the mall. And it is pay-what-you-want so you can fit the tour in your budget.

I took the 4-hour "All-in-One" tour featuring the National Mall + Tidal Basin and enjoyed it a lot. It is a great way to see the major memorials and monuments. Our guide was Erin who was friendly and knowledgeable. She did a great job of overviewing each attraction and I felt we had an adequate amount of time at each... More

Misleading about size of group! Said you couldn't sign up for more than 5 people or you'd have to make arrangements for a private tour - so you think you're getting a smaller limited group tour. What they neglect to tell you is that at least 6 groups of 4-5 are with you. Our group had at least 30 people... More

Canden, Manager at DC by Foot, responded to this review

Thank you for joining us in DC and for your review. I apologise if our group policy is misleading. We limit both the size of individual bookings and the group as a whole to make sure that the size of the group is manageable for one guide, and send additional guides down if there is a long wait list.

The National Mall tour was a fantastic way to get started in Washington. Becca, our guide, was great. She really brought the incredible history to life with lots of interesting facts we would have never found out ourselves. Highly recommended for all ages.
