We reserved a spot for the Arlington Tour. During the tour our guide told us all sorts of traditions, stories, and saw many highlights. It was well worth taking the time to go on the tour

These tours are amazing I learned so much and got to see all of the monuments I wanted to see. The walk was not to bad and the guides are very helpful and friendly I would definitely do it again.

You will know a lot of details, story, informations otherwise it will just be another sight as you passby. I encourage those who are keen to know more on the memorial to take part in the 2-3 short hours walking tours. In total we joined 4 tours in dc washington and its very convenient just to book on their website... More

I did 3 walking tours in New York and the all-in-one tour in DC. Our guide Carolyne was brilliant, gave us ample amount of time for everything. Even though I got lost initially she helped me find my way and join the tour back. It is a must do in every city and again its pay what you feel like.

We had Mathilda for our National Mall tour and Steve for the Lincoln Assassination tour. Both were great in their own ways. Mathilda gave a lot of time to reflect and take in the memorials. Steve was dealt a rough night with the weather (major, major thunderstorm!) but he was so passionate about the subject that people didn't want to... More

We did the National Mall Tour with Cecilia and it was interesting, informal and most informative. The tour was well organised from when I first reserved our places to the actual tour itself. The fact that you can pay what you like at the end of the tour should not put off anyone from trying this tour, it is a... More

We are a family of 4 (kids are 15 and almost 13) and while in DC we took 2 of the DC by Foot Tours. The first was the Lincoln Assassination Tour with Kara. This was a great tour-so much more to the story you've heard or what you learned in school. Kara was fantastic taking you to places that... More

Our Tour Guide (Kara) was easy to locate; We then proceeded on a highly interactive tour for the next four hours through the National Mall and Tidal Basin. While I thought the tour would have been too long, Kara had paced the tour just right so that no one was left behind. She was very knowledgeable on the sights and... More
