We had the great pleasure of heading out yesterday on an amazing walking tour of the monuments of Washington DC and it has been one of the highlights of our trip to DC. We had searched to do a different type of tour to what we might normally take and this was it. Tim is an ex teacher and a... More

My wife and I took the Monument Tour with Tim Stewart. This guide was fully engaging, passionate and knowledgable about the sites that we saw. This is not a tour for kids and if you simply want to see as many monuments, and notable buildings in DC, this is not the tour for you. Tim only discussed a half a... More

It was an extremely hot, humid day with a small group, but that didn't stop Tim from being gracious and considerate to everyone's questions and requests. He guided us to as many shady spots as possible and kept up with his energetic presentation. He appears to have great relations with site volunteers, rangers and security people along the way, further... More

Having looked at the reviews of the walking tours in DC we selected this one and boy are we happy we did. Five brilliant hours of entertaining, interesting information. Tim is an ex teacher who takes great joy in the tours he gives. We found a lot about the history of the monuments on the Mall as well as various... More

We always look at some of the top rated things to do or services on TripAdvisor. So glad we didn't overlook Walk of The Town with Tim. One of the most surprising things, he is not a history teacher by profession. His love of the area he grew up in is obvious. Riding his bike down the streets of DC... More

I am a great fan of these type of tours but when the person is really interested and does not do it just because it is her/his job, it amazes me even more. I was so surprised to know that he does it being retired! It just shows how much he wants to teach everyone and that is adorable! If... More

Visiting from Toronto, our friends from Chicago found Tim online. We had the most fantastic day walking around learning about so many historical sites and memorials. Tim is friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept us engaged for the entire 4.5 hours. Would never have appreciated so many of the details without such an informative guide. Would highly recommend this tour... More

Tim is so knowledgeable of our nation's history and his walking tour is filled with great facts & entertaining trivia (we took his tour of the monuments). He's friendly, considerate of what those in his tours are looking to see, do, learn and possesses an engaging personality. We truly appreciated all of the additional information about how to tour the... More

We had a great time today with Tim. He's definitely a good teacher & kept us engaged. He shared many facts I did not know & even my history buff spouse learned some new facts. Highly recommend!
