My wife and two teenage kids took the tour with Tim and it was fantastic. We learned more about DC in 5 hours than I knew my whole life. Tim is knowledgable, entertaining and passionate about DC. It is a long tour so expect to walk a lot. After the tour, my kids were still interested and we visited more... More

My wife and I spent the day on a walking tour with Tim and 3 other couples and had a WONDERFUL time! With every step we learned something new about the nation's capital and got the opportunity to play along with some fun question and answer games :) Stops included the White House, the Washington Monument, the WW2 Memorial, Vietnam...

I visited D.C. with my dad over memorial day weekend. With only the weekend available our ambition was to see as much as possible in our limited time. We took this tour with Tim on our first morning there and it was truly exceptional. It is a long tour, but Tim is very considerate of making stops for restrooms, snacks,... More

We had a brilliant 4.5 hours walking with Tim around an area that was not too challenging, (apart from the searing heat), and covering, most of the major monuments with incredible detail and plenty of humour. He is a superb guide and deserves all the 5 star reviews he receives. If you have the chance to do it - don't... More

Tim provided an amazingly informative and interesting tour. He clearly enjoys giving his tours, and we were delighted to learn so many interesting things about D.C. and the monuments. I am a history buff and I appreciated all the history we learned about on the tour. We have kids ages 9, 12, and 14, so I was initially worried they... More

Visiting DC for the first time, I had read the wonderful reviews for Tim's tours and thought 'why not?'. We so weren't disappointed. Disliking formal and rigid or hop on/hop off tours, Tim sounded like he may just hit the right note. And we were so NOT disappointed!! From Australia and with 20 & 18 year olds in tow, it's... More

Not having been in DC in many years, I was a little skeptical about a "tips only" tour such as this where you just show up and meet the guide, but this tour was great. My wife,son and I, along with about four others, walked the tour with Tim on a very hot Sunday, but Tim did his best to... More
