“The tour was wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

This is the second Walk of the Town tour I've been on. This time we went on a midday (10-1:30) Saturday tour. We were initially hesitant about the length of time but we loved every minute. Tim, the tour guide, was so entertaining, knowledgable and friendly. We loved getting to know so much "behind the scenes" about the monuments. The night tour was also phenomenal.

“A Washington walkabout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Great walking your of the Washington mall sights. Excellent insights into memorials, full of interesting history. Gave us all snacks when our energy lagged. An advertised 3 hour tour took 4 hours due to time for picture taking, potty breaks, etc. Time went by fast. Would recommend him highly.

“Great tour. Will be recommending to family and friends.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I live near DC and took my Mum, who was visiting from the UK, after reading several reviews. We went on the tour yesterday, on a really cold day. Tim kept us distracted with lots of interesting information and stories about the DC sights and Monuments.
The 3.5 hour tour went by very quickly.
I will definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family.
I normally never write reviews, but think this is a great way to see this part of DC.

“If you are in DC make sure you do this tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Tim is an incredible tour guide! We not only learned so much about DC, the monuments, and the Memorials but we also had a great time! This was the highlight of our trip!

If you are thinking about going on another tour and paying a large sum of money, don't! Great exercise!

“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Son and I had less than 24 hours in DC and decided on Tim's tour based on the reviews from Trip Advisor... SO HAPPY WE DID! Tim is fabulous, an absolute wealth of ALL kinds of knowledge, and super nice to boot. Please go prepared to leave him a big tip at the end of this FREE tour... he earns VERY penny! Will absolutely join him again if we are ever back in the area. Wear comfortable shoes and taking along a water bottle is not a bad idea...
