“Well Worth Your Time!”
Reviewed August 3, 2009

We took a DC by Foot Tour, More than Monuments, on 7/29/09 and Tim was our guide. It was one of the best activities we participated in during our whole vacation! Tim kept our attention the entire time and kept our children entertained, too. He was full of information about DC and he genuinely enjoyed sharing it with visitors. The tour was short, but was packed with fun facts about Washington. We highly recommend DC by Foot!

“Learned a lot and laughed a lot.”
Reviewed August 3, 2009

Great tour. Our young tour guide, Steve Petrock, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and had a great sense of humor. Group moved at a relaxed pace, starting from the Washington Monument and ending at the Lincoln Memorial. It's a good time when you learn a lot and laugh a lot and even shed a few tears (at the Vietnam War Memorial).
Would recommend for any age.

“Great tour... Don't miss this!”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

I highly recommend this tour to anyone including families. Our tour guide (Steve) was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor to go along with it. He even was willing to wait to allow us (about 30 persons total in the tour) to wait for Marine One to take off from the White House lawn. He kept everyone entertained while walking on the tour by peppering us with Presidential trivia. You couldn't help but learn something!
Thanks again to DC by foot for a great morning!

“Great tour in DC”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

Myself, wife and daughter (12yrs) toured DC in July. We made a point to join the DC by Foot tour based on reviews on Trip Advisor. The group consisted of about 40 and while large is worked well. The tour guide handled the walking group well and was very knowledgeable and entertaining. This is a great way to get oriented to all the monuments and attractions. Surprisingly the guide did not ask for a tip (the tour is free), but most folks did the right thing and gave him something for his time.

“Absolutely the most informative and wonderful tour in DC!!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2009

We had an excellent and knowledgable guide. He knew lots of little known facts and details about the conspiracy to kill President Lincoln. I was ready to come home and start reading up on the events leading up to the Civil War and beyond! Our guide had us enthralled--even the summer thunderstorm didn't deter us. When the Capitol policeman came to tell us that there was a severe thunderstorm coming thru, none of the group left, we continued the tour under a tree as the rain continued around us. I have lived in DC for almost 8 years, when relatives come in to visit, I try to find them fun things to do, I am going to make sure all future visitors will take this tour!
