“Greatness of America”
Reviewed 22 June 2008

EXCELLENT Tour.. miss others, but TAKE THIS ONE !

Entertaining, Enlightening, Educational, Energetic, and Engaging !!

Tour covers all the major monuments around the Mall, and the pace is perfect - I had two 60+ seniors with me who didn't speak much English, but even they had a wonderful time. My 10 year old son couldn't stop talking about Ben and Brody and how knowledgeable they were.

This tour is what's right about America - energetic citizens with a passion to tell a story about the history of the monuments.
DEFINATELY take this tour and make sure you tip these guys well - they deserve it !

“Must Do This!”
Reviewed 20 June 2008

FABULOUS FREE walking tour - don't miss it. Guide was funny and entertaining for the kiddo's. Lot's of interesting information on the background of the monuments that I'll always remember. Wear good shoes - because at the end you are maybe 6 blocks from the nearest metro station - BUT totally worth the effort! MUST DO!

“Great tour!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2008

The 6:00 tour was the last thing we did after a long day of walking around D.C. and it ended up being one of the biggest highlights of our trip to D.C. Our tour guide, Brody, was great. He was able to keep our older kids (10 and 8) interested and involved in the tour with historical facts and funny stories you might have never heard otherwise. You start near the Washington Monument and end at the Lincoln Memorial...it's a long walk but you hardly notice because the tour is so entertaining and educational.

No tip is required but I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to leave one after seeing how well done the tour is and how hard these guys have worked to make it fun and educational. We will definitely do this tour again on our next trip to D.C.

“Well worth the tip!”
Reviewed 1 June 2008

We can see why TripAdvisor has this as the number one attraction. Ben was a wonderful guide, engaging with our group and took special interest in the small boy in our group and incorporated him into his tour. He was outgoing and joking, but very knowledgeable. We were very impressed with his facts about the Vietnam Monument, and that he showed a great deal of respect as he described all the details and thoughts of what went into the design of this monument. Two in our group were Vietnam vets so it made an impression. This tour is definitely worth the price of the tip.

“Adds color to the gray monuments”
Reviewed 26 May 2008

Excellent tour. Not really "meaty" in the sense of information, but there are some good tidbits. Mostly it is a great way to check out the Mall with some entertainment thrown in. Our guide was clearly having a great time, and the price is certainly right! Leave a good tip, he's working hard for it.
