“Lincoln Assassination Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Ricky Bobby was a great guide, this was the best walking tour ever. He even stuck around after to show us a little more and answer questions. I wish now we had booked a few more tours with yall while we were there.

“Have fun and know what you are looking at...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My wife and I go to Washington DC at least once a year. And we must have walked by the Washington Monument and thru the war memorials dozens of times. But taking the tour with DC by Foot made it a whole new experience. He showed us details we never noticed and told us history and construction details that gave everything more meaning. Our guide was fantastic and really seemed to enjoy giving the tour. He even asked us trivia questions as we walked and tossed us candies if we got a correct answer. The best part of our tour was when our guide was interrupted by a kindly old WWII vet at the memorial. The guide told him "this is your memorial" and invited him to talk to us about experiences. We finished at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at dark with the monument lit up in the reflecting pool...perfect! The tour is free, but they do ask for donations. We GLADLY gave our guide $20 for the great experience. Be kind and remember to bring a few bucks cash. I really recommend DC by Foot for anyone coming to DC for the first time.

“What a great way to tour DC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My husband and I were in DC for a short trip and were overwhelmed with all the attractions and options in DC. My husband stumbled upon the website for DC by Foot and was very impressed by all the tour options. We elected for the 2 hour National Mall tour and was very impressed with the tour guide, Chris. He was extremely engaging and knowledgeable and had lots of great stories associated with the major monuments and memorials along the Mall. If I had more time, we would have definitely done the longer tours! Thanks a great taste of DC!

“Deven was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Our guide for a tour of the national mall was Deven and he was also a history teacher. The color he was able to add to the tour with all his interesting facts and historical background was awesome. We had a big group so the only drawback was it was hard to hear everything he was saying if you weren't up front. It also would have been good to have more time at the WW 2 memorial. Highly recommend the tour and wouldn't hesitate to do another.

“D.C. By Foot Walking and Bus Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I booked a private walking and bus tour with D.C. by Foot. My group of 5/6th graders had a wonderful time and leaned a lot of interesting information. Our tour guide for both trips was Deven Havner . Deven was amazing with the kids. He kept them engaged by asking questions, sharing relevant pictures on his ipad, and had funny stories to share. I would highly recommend both tours to anyone visiting Washington, D.C.
