We had 4 full days to enjoy this city and didn't have enough time to do it. Everyone must go the the country's Capitol atleast once in their life. This was so impressive and everything was within walking distance from each other. Great restaurants and I felt safe the entire time I was there. Union Station was the place to... More

So glad I booked the tour. I took the full one that does the entire monuments circuit and it was worth every penny. Our tour guide was lovely and she was so passionate about DC.

Informative, interesting, captivating! An outstanding retelling of the events leading up to assasination of Abraham Lincoln. The walking part was not excessive even for my 3-year-old son or me (suffering with a heel spur). Our German exchange student was also very impressed by Becca's outright knowledge on the topic and fluid explanations and stories. He exclaimed how nice it was... More

I visited DC and joined 2 tours by 'DC by Foot' - the 'WHITE HOUSE AT NIGHT- secrets, scandals and legends', and 'THE NATIONAL MALL' on Saturday, 18th November. I was informed of our meeting point and time via email a couple of days before. Once you get to the meeting point, you check-in with your guide, and off you... More

There were 4 of us on Stephen's tour of Arlington on 11/5. Tour was amazing! Although all of us had been to Arlington before, Stephen included areas and commentary we had not seen or heard before. At the tour's end, he took time to direct all participants to areas of interest within walking distance of Arlington.

I'd forgotten to make reservations for the moonlight tour of the National Mall and by the time I remembered, it was sold out. I was very disappointed, but noticed on the website that there are often cancellations. We decided to show up to the meeting spot anyway. The tour guide, Carolyn, said we could absolutely join the tour. The moonlight... More

We greatly enjoyed our tour with Ingeborg, It was after sunset so all of the monuments were lit up which was really pretty. Ingeborg was a great guide and gave just enough history to make the sites really come to life. Wish we would have done more DC by Foot tours while in DC.

2 hours visiting capital hill!! Library, supreme court and capital! Though we weren't confirmed for tickets to tour the interior of capital hill she was able to confirm! I only wish the DC tour by foot tour had started earlier in the day so we could have had more time after the capital hill tour to revisit supreme court. Becca... More
