We really enjoyed DC by Foot and would recommend it to anyone coming to sight see. We started with Kara on the Arlington National Cemetery tour. Keep in mind we did our four tours with a six year old. Kara is very knowledgeable, keeps it very interesting (even for a six year old), and keeps it moving at a great... More

We did a National Mall tour with Dan King as our tour guide and it was fantastic. Not only is Dan a great wealth of knowledge, he has a great personality which adds to how fun the tour is. The pace is perfect - not too fast and not too slow and the National Mall tour hits the Washington Monument,... More

I have taken three of DC by Foot's tours now, and all have been extremely well researched, well delivered and I would recommend all of them to visitors and residents alike. As British expats living in DC for a few years, we are keen to take the tours for our own benefit, and all of our visitors so far have... More

My family and I took the tour today with Dan King as our tour guide. This was so much fun, he is so knowledgeable and made everything so interesting with the little stories here and there. I would definitely recommend this to others. The pace was good and great for families, our son is 10. I'm going to book another... More

The tour was an easy walk, and we did the Secrets and Scandals Tour around the White House. Our guide was knowledgeable, and entertaining. Our family really enjoyed it.

Our Guide, Canden, was excellent, very knowledgeable, sharing lots of information in an interesting and fun way We covered a lot of ground but the pace was not rushed. You can check out their website to see when their tours operate and what... More

I LOVE this company! They are innovative, knowledgeable and fun! We went on a two hour Georgetown walking tour with Dan King as our guide today. It was just awesome, so very interesting. We toured neighborhoods that were beautiful and captured the homes of John and Jackie Kennedy to name one highlight. I HIGHLY recommend this company. You pay what... More

I really enjoyed the walking tour of the National Mall. It was very comprehensive and entertaining. Even though I have a degree in history I felt as though I learned a lot. Canden was a fantastic guide, being both informative and very funny. I will definitely recommend it to any friends who are visiting Washington, D.C..
