“Best DC walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2008

What a find! Highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Ben, was passionate, informed and clearly having the time of his life. As a result, so did we. Be prepared to walk a lot --but it's totally worth it.

“Our DC Highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2008

When you're in our Nation's capital be sure to schedule time for the DC by Foot tour. I knew I would enjoy the tour by the reviews but had no idea our 12-year old son would like it so much. In fact, our son stated this was the favorite thing he did during our 6 days in DC. Brody was our guide and he's like your favorite camp counselor. The tour provided all the pertinant facts about the Washington Monument, the WWII Memorial, The Vietnam Memorial, Signer's Island, White House and Lincoln Memorial. In addition, fun facts and humor make this a 1.5 hour tour fly by. The walking tour is well-paced for any fitness level. Our guide, Brody showed us the DC we all crave- from the patriotic to the quirky-- we laughed, we cried (the Vietnam Memorial is very powerful) and had a great time! This is a don't miss on your list of DC events.

“Certainly better stories than mom could tell!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

We took the 6:00 PM Sunday tour. I swear, there had to be 70 people with us! It had already been a long day, so the kids (8 & 13) were tired and it was still fairly warm. Brody was very nice and knowelegable (if a bit scripted). While my kids did fuss that they were tired and thirsty, the truth is they would have been 100x more miserable if I had tried to figure out the same tour on my own!

Also, I have heard the kids tell the cat story and the Adams / Jefferson bet story several times. Therefore, I am sure that they enjoyed the tour more than they realize!

All in all, this is a very nice tour - wear your walking shoes and bring enough water!

“A Must DO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

This is a must do when you are in Washington DC! I learned more on the tour than I did when I was touring the White House. It is a great way to see all of the monuments in a short amount of time. Even though you are walking, the tour guide will keep you entertained. The walk will seem like 20 mins. instead of an hour.

If you don't do DC by Foot...you will miss out!

“A "Must-Do" in D.C.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2008

This tour deserves to be #1!! My boyfriend and I loved the tour, our guide (Ben) had a ton of D.C. knowledge and stories to tell us, and he was totally into giving the tour which made it that much better. He's very interactive and it's a nice tour of about half the monuments. I highly recommend this tour :o)
