Thank you for joining the Georgetown walking tour. My own humble opinion matches yours: storytelling is an essential component of a memorable walking tour. We work with our guides on honing that skill and will continue to do so. Appreciate the observation and feedback! -Carolyn...More

We took two different tours of the monuments on and near the Mall, both in the evening in June, 2015. The first walk was guided by an architecture grad student who gave a really interesting twist on the mechanics and structures of the various monuments...More

Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and considerate, but the tour was a little disappointing. We had expected to receive more information/history on the Embassies and their interaction with our city/country. The tour spent the first 30 min at DuPont Circle and discussed the statue,...More
