Thanks to Tim for a great tour.

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... read 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

We spent 5 hours in Tim's company and can honestly say that this was one of the highlights of our trip to the USA. Tim is exceptionally knowledgeable about the monuments visited and surrounding areas and is full of fascinating stories all of which means that, even in sweltering heat, the time flew by. At the end of the tour... More

Tim gives the best walking tour. I loved listening to all of Tim's knowledge of the memorials and monuments. He has so much knowledge that you would think he designed and built them. He is awesome! I highly recommend!!

This pleasant, entertaining and educational walking tour of the mall area and monuments was wonderful. Tim is an awesome host, an engaging educator, dynamic and funny. Also, very thoughtul; he keeps track of everyone and involves everyone. He even brings snacks !! My companion recommended him from a previous tour. I will definitely repeat a walk with him next time... More

Tim is a great guide and gave us an introduction to all the key sights. We couldn't have learnt this much from any guide book and with the heat as it was we might have given up part way through. With Tim you forget about the heat and the time flies by. No way did this feel like 5 hours... More

Tim was wonderful! We had our 10-month-old with us in a stroller and Tim did a great job making sure we were included and the group stayed together. It was a 5 hour tour, but we never walked more than a few hundred yards at a time before stopping in a shady spot (with rare exception).

Tim, your one and only guide, is a former school teacher and has a great ability to herd a group of tourists and keep everyone engaged and interested with a wonderful array of stories, facts, anecdotes, history, art critique and Washington lore. My two teenagers were totally engaged for 4 1/2 hours and aver with me that this is a... More

Engaging, Enlightening and Exploratory! Tim's stories and route illuminated the history of this country. At times quite funny and other times emotionally moving....both with respect.

My wife and I have just returned from a 5 hour tour which was witty, informative and a great way of seeing the Mall and a good number of it's memorials. Tim the guide was a mine of information and welcomed participation. 5 hours sound arduous but passed easily.

How anyone can keep teenagers interested in history for 5 hours in heat and humidity is a Herculean tasks...and Tim accomplished it effortlessly. My kids were dreading the idea of a four hour walking tour and yet they stayed interested and engaged throughout. Tim's knowledge, enthusiasm, and humor really makes this an essential piece of any trip to DC! Also... More
