“Great evening tour!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We signed up for the DC by foot night tour which requested a $10pp deposit to hold a seat on the tour bus. This was a great way to see the monuments and some of the memorials all lit up at night. The tour was over 3 hours long, but the time went fast, and we know that we wouldn't of been able to appreciate the views by simply doing it ourself. Our guide, Steve was very knowledgeable and we had no problem tipping him well....it was a great experience!

“DC-by-Foot tour is a must-do for everyone! !”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I recommend the DC-by-Foot Monuments tour as a wonderful introduction for individuals and families. Cecilia explained the Monuments' facts along with fun trivia; she made the tour informational and enjoyable. I wasn't sure how well I would do with keeping up the pace, but Cecilia made sure everyone stayed together; the time flew for me, without even thinking about the distance. This tour is an excellent pace for walking and picture-taking! I came for the tour because the proce of a tour-guide tip enticed me; I will certainly look for another tour any time, especially if all your tour guides exhibit such an excellent caliber!

“The best things in life are free!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

My teenage son and I spent two whirlwind days in DC this past March.

On the first day, we visited the much recommended Spy Museum. What a waste of time and (lots) money.

On the second day, we thankfully signed up for a fabulous DC by Foot tour of the National Mall. Our tour guide was not only incredibly knowledgeable and well spoken, but also funny and inspirational. As our group sat on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he gave us a speech about Lincoln's legacy that made us erupt in applause.

Please don't forget to TIP these tour guides!

Chris was our guide, he was very knowledgeable and entertaining! We did the monument tour, took about 2 hours and was at a nice pace. Definitely recommend this tour, hope to go back and take some of the other tours.
