My husband and I visited Washington DC and took the Memorials & Moonlight and White House at Night: Secrets & Scandals walking tours. They were great! Just long enough to see the best sights and hear about the great stories that make DC such an amazing place to visit. Ingeborg and Becca, our tour guides were fantastic! If you are... More

Carolyn wonderfully educated us about US history and the sights we encountered on the National Mall. She was very enthusiastic and this came through in her delivery, keeping us enthralled. My husband and I both loved the tour.

Boglarka was our guide and she was great! We are so glad we did the tour because we did not have a lot of time in D.C. and this made it easier for us to see and hear about all of the monuments on the National Mall and have a better understanding than we would on our own. I think... More

Ingeborg provided an interesting and enjoyable tour of the monuments along the mall. She was engaging and informative and kept to a schedule that allowed us to explore a little, but kept moving! Prior to the tour she sent an email confirming the meeting spot and even a picture of the corner!! Kudos to a wonderful tour guide.

I feel like I learned so much about D.C. from this tour!! My guide, Ingeborg, was so well informed and interesting! I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel to share the info I learned with my friend, who was jealous she didn't get to go! What a wonderful value and way to get to know the National Mall!

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
