My dad, who is retirement age, my teen, my tween and myself had the pleasure of taking the monuments tour with Tim. As an educator, I was thrilled to find a tour guide who was a former educator. Tim was not only informative, but also...More

Simply the BEST tour of Washington DC! You have to meet Tim and listien to his stories. He is very pleasant and passionate about his work. If we could we would have given him 6 or even 7 stars review.

Tim loves his job and it showed in his energy, enthusiasm and knowledge. He took the time at the beginning to get to know his clients and interacted with all of us, throughout the tour. His fav route was blocked, so he waited a bit...More

About the most entertaining tour I've ever taken. You'll remember Tim's enthusiasm and energy long after the tour has ended. (So don't make the mistake of taking other tours afterwards like I did. They won't compare well to your experience with Tim's.) Make sure to...More

I would certainly think so but to confirm you can email Tim directly from his website as he's very responsive.
I am interested in your tours, but need to know if they are wheelchair-accessible. I can walk, but not long distances, will have others with me to push my wheelchair.

This a fairly considerable walk and also lots of standing. The tour takes a minimum of 3 hours . If there is anyway you can do it it's highly recommended but I suggest a fold up chair/ stick
