Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, my husband and I signed up for a National Mall tour with DC by Foot. Our tour guide was Dan King, a Dartmouth history grad and a former middle school history teacher. We had a group of about 18-20 but Dan had a loud voice so we never had any problem hearing him! We started... More

Whether you are an adult or child, this tour is wonderful .. I have never learned so much about Washington, DC without studying!! Dave gave an in depth history lesson as we walked the National Mall and its monuments while keeping us intrigued and entertained. I highly recommend this tour AND Dave to visitors or locals!

3 Brits in DC on business and took this tour on a Sunday morning . We learnt so much about American history in the first few minutes alone! Good booking experience and easy to find the meet up point which had toilets, sold bottled water and had a gift shop. Dave was superb; knowledgeable, friendly, accessible, good pace of tour....

Great four hours spent in DC. Our guide Dan was full of interesting facts and at the same time provided the group with some great laughs. Highly recommended

Carolyn was our guide and what a great one she was. Her knowledge was unlimited. She took her time with our group and hung around the Library of Congress to answer any questions we might have.

Nice way to see some of the major monuments like the Lincoln, Jefferson and FDR as well as the war memorials. Not sure how far we walked but din't feel too strenuous. Informative guide Britt (Brett? Hey he needs a badge!) was knowledgeable and had plenty of background stories. A good intro to American history for visitors to the U.S.A.

We did the National Mall, the Lincoln Assassination and Arlington Cemetery. The tours were fantastic and the tour guides were amazing -- passionate about their subject and history in general. We...

Even though I'd been to DC before, I wanted an introductory historical walking tour of DC. I thought four hours might be too long or overwhelming, but it was the perfect dose of touristic sight-seeing, storytelling, and walking to familiarize myself with DC's monuments. Carolyn is a really fantastic tour guide, providing the ideal balance between historical background, interesting facts,... More
