4 hours seemed like a long time for a walking tour but, thanks to our effervescent guide Becca, the time passed quickly. She was very knowledgeable and thanks to cherry blossom and sunshine made for a great way to see the sites. Highly recommended

We were in DC for Spring Break and went on two DC by foot tours: National Mall & Tidal Basin, and Capitol Hill & Library of Congress. Ingeborg was our guide for both of the tours. We arrived in DC the same day the blizzards hit the northeast, and and our tours were in sub-freezing weather. We had challenging weather,... More

My daughter and I had a cold windy evening tour of the monuments around the mall with Carolyn last week. She was engaging, had a perfect pace to the tour, and her knowledge was incredible. Usually, I'm not a big history person, but they way Carolyn conveyed the information, I was fascinated! The snow on the group and the clear... More

We had the pleasure of touring the National Mall with Carolyn last evening. Our group included adults and children, all found the tour enjoyable. Carolyn was able to provide a history on each of the monuments, as well as entertaining lesser known details. Really fun, relaxed way to fit in a large amount of siteseeing in a short period of...

It was a cold and rainy night in DC and my teenage daughter wanted to bail but we agreed to ditch the tour half way through if it was lame-it was AWESOME! It was one of the highlights our our trip. Our tour guide Carolyn was on top of her game-she communicated well before the tour making it really easy... More

We booked this online and we were not disappointed. It was something fun to do at night. Becca was our guide and she knew all the scoop on old Washington elite. She was informative and fun. I would recommend this tour for adults not children. You meet in front of the White House tour is around 1.5 hours. Pay what... More

When I could not get a timed ticket to visit the Capitol buildings I booked a tour with DC by foot. They guaranteed an entry time as well as a tour of the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court. Our guide was born and raised in DC and knew the history. Our group was only around 10 people so... More

An excellent way to visit all the great memorials, learning some facts by listening to your tour guide, and at the same time enjoying the weather and reaching your step goal 😉 Becca was a great guide, and I would always recommend this tour!

Cecilia was our tour guide for the evening walking tour of "Lincoln's Assassination". She was very knowledgeable and definitely kept our attention throughout a very cold and snowy walk. I appreciated that she even provided pictures of those involved in the story, which helped my younger son connect more with the tour. I would highly recommend the tour and would... More
