“Entertaining, informative and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Tim was great! We loved the stories he told about each of the locations. He really knew the history of the area. The tour is slow paced, but covers a lot of ground. Might want to bring a snack. We really loved it and would recommend this tour to anyone who like to see the sights and know the historical details associated with them.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Just finished with Tim and his tour. it was amazing, very knowledgable and very friendly.

We met Tim just where he said, and walked around on our tour. It is Veterans Day today which made for an even more interesting tour. To cap it off we managed to see president Barack Obama, coming from Arlington Cemetery.

Highly recommended, very friendly, knowledgable and very funny.

A must on any visit! He is a free tour with tips. Worth every cent!

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

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.
