We did two tours: National Mall and Lincoln Assassination. Both were extremely well done. Our our guide Carolyn was very knowledgeable and passionate about the stops on our tour. Our guide on Tues July 21 (cannot remember his name) was a great storyteller! He was also very passionate about the story of the LincolnAssassination.

There are a variety of walking (and bike) tours that DC by foot offer, we did the 4 hour combined National Mall and Tidal Basin tour and the evening Dark Secrets of Dupont Circle tour. If we were staying for longer, we would have done more! We had Dan K and Becca for our tours, and they were both great.... More

They take you along the best paths to see all the important sites. The online booking procedure is very easy. We did the National Mall evening tour with Britt. I... More

Mike H. was our tour guide. Both he and the driver were very courteous and friendly. The tour was both informative and fun. Highly recommend over city sights which was costly and a waste of time.Will definitely be looking for free tours by foot for all future trips. Kind regards, Hampson Family

My family went on the walking ghost tour and it was informative and creepy. Our tour guide Sarah was very knowledgeable and informative. Be prepared to walk uphill. If you enjoy things like this it is well worth the time.

After a long day walking (poor planning on my part), we embarked on a DC by Foot walking tour of the National Mall. Our tour guide was Dan and he was AWESOME!!! Dan is a former high school teacher and he had... More

Our tour guide Britt was very knowledgable about our American History and fun facts! We lucked out with the wonderful weather, otherwise we would have been miserable.
