Tim is not only knowledgeable of history, architecture and general facts and figures, but he delivers the information in a conversational, storytelling way that makes the day fly by. I highly recommend the tour for tourists and locals alike! He's great with kids too.

Did a half day tour at the national mall. The guide was very knowledgeable and walked us through the different monuments. We were a party of 7 ( grandparents, parents and three kids - 13, 11, 8) all of us enjoyed.
