Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and offered interesting factoids on Lincoln and other significant figures. He was friendly and made sure any and all questions were answered.

“Lincoln Assassination Tour - a DC highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

We went on four tours by DCbyFoot. I really enjoyed this one the most. All the guides were very good and entertaining. The guide on this one was especially interesting because you could tell how interested he was in the material. An excellent storyteller, he really had a lot of information to keep track of which was obviously no problem for him. Like all the guides, you imagine that they're current or retired history teachers. I learned a lot too.

“Awesome Lincoln Assassination Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

Excellent tour! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and excited guide. Well told stories and little known facts that spread wide the nominal information most of us get during elementary school. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in American history, or simply a fascinating story. Well done, guide!!! :)

“Wonderful for adults and kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

My family took the Monuments Tour. It was wonderful and you can't beat the cost! The walking is broken up into short segments, so it shouldn't be too much for most people. The tour was enjoyed by kids and adults.

“Not for kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

A gorgeous day - a beautiful walk - but Eddie wasn't funny and didn't hold our kids' attention (ages 6 and 9). They kept asking to leave the tour - maybe they were having an off day. Don't forget that the tour is one way- so although the tour itself is a little over a mile, you have a return trip.

A hop on and off trolley may be better for kids. Eddie talked a lot - very interesting history but nobody was laughing. I guess this is the number 1 attraction because it's free.

TourDC, Owner at DC by Foot, responded to this review, July 22, 2009
We are sorry that you feel the tour is not good for children. While we have a great reputation for entertaining people of all ages, we won't always be able to hold every child's attention on every tour.

Also, please note that while the tour does not end in the same place where it starts, not everyone will have to walk back. Hotels are located in various directions from the end point and some guests will find that we end closer to their accomodations than where the tour starts.
