We all really enjoyed the Rainbow Pride D.C. walk on Jun 12, 2021. Three out of the four of us are native Washingtonians (like born here, not just here for a while), and we learned so much we didn't know about DC. For two of us this was not our first Washington Walks tour, they are always fun and informative. We highly recommend.

Since COVID, they've done a fine job with virtual experiences on a variety of topics that differ from their standard tours. We've been to a few Saturday talks/virtual walks focused on DC architects or historical figures. As DC locals interested in history, we find them filled with fascinating into and great photos you can view up close. The live Zoom talk still feels very personal and for a small group. Washington Walks guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable enough to answer almost any question. The hour flies by.

Polly was a wonderful guide and opened my eyes to so much of Georgetown’s history, beyond showing the art pieces part of the seasonal GLO exhibit. She did so despite weather challenges, and I’m incredibly grateful for her tour!

We live up to our "rain or shine" motto some tour dates ore than others. Your tour date was one during which rain prevailed over shine. Thank you so much for braving the weather. As you experienced, our intrepid guide Polly shines under any and all conditions! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

"Meet at Pennsylvania and 28th st."..... that was the first problem because as you know, there are 4 corners, at least, to intersections. The meet up locations needs to be precise. It was raining, cold and windy and the walk should have been cancelled. Polly's voice could not be heard above the traffic noise and the large group (all with umbrellas) did not allow getting close to her. The disappointment came because this was simply a walking history tour of Georgetown that happened to include the 2019 version of the 11 annual "Glow" art light installations around Georgetown. It seemed to be almost an afterthought that we walked past the installations even thought the title of the tour is "GLOW tour of Georgetown. Polly delivered a memorized script about the history of Georgetown (yawn) but knew nothing about the art installations that couldn't be read on the small and brief statements at each art site. I expected "insider" information about the artists or about the theme of the 2019 GLOW program, or about the materials used, etc. SOMETHING about the art!!! Instead, we hung out in the cold, wind and rain listening to history of G Washington etc. OH - several of the art installations did not have full lighting turned on (i.e., under the canal bridge).

Clearly the "Georgetown Waterfront GLOW" walking tour did not meet your expectations. That's too bad. We certainly appreciate you giving the tour a try. (Note that our walking tour company has no control over which artworks are lit well--or lit at all. Nor do we control the information about the artwork that is provided by each participating artist.) -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks

Noah was great. We really enjoyed the historical information as well as the art. It was raining out, but we didn’t care, it was a great walk! We separated from the group early because we were getting tired from a long day in town. Would definitely do another tour for another event!

Please do come back for another walking tour with us. We are glad you could join us for the "Georgetown Waterfront GLOW." The combination of illuminated art and neighborhood history seems to have won out over the rainy weather. Great! -Carolyn Crouch, Founder, Washington Walks
