“Fantastic 2 hours”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Where do we start on how wonderful our tour was. Bo was our guide for the 2 hours and he was fantastic. Charming informative and such an all round lovely person. I am so pleased that we found this fantastic activity. Our only hope is that Bo as rewarded enough. At the end of the session my husband thought he could have brought us all together and summed up the evening and made a general note about the "free tour"!!. This is not a criticism of him but just an observation of what a lovely guy he was. Sometimes when you are doing something you love you don't actually expect to be paid as well. We will definitely be applauding you everywhere. THANK YOU and PLEASE Thank Bo x x

“Absolutely phenomenal experience”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This is a must for any traveler! We were exhausted after a full day of walking around in the sun, so we weren't sure how much we'd enjoy our evening Lincoln Assassination tour. It turned out to be AMAZING and well-worth going to. Not only did we had a most fascinating and intriguing tour with Ricky, but he stayed around after the tour to give us insights into life in DC, and recommended us a great restaurant to check out afterwards.

“Well Worth The Tour”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We took this 2 hour tour of DC and it was very interesting .
The tour guide originally from North Carolina was wonderful and very knowledgeable.
She spoke loud enough for all to hear. And since it was Memorial Day we visited most of the
Veteran Monuments.
It was a very touching experience.
I certainly would recommend this tour

“Great way to hear the background behind the sights”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Today my wife and I did two of their tours - Arlington Cemetery and the National Mall with Bo and Canden respectively. Both tours were informative, interesting and made fun by the tour guides. These tours are offered free but they run on a tip basis. This concept is used frequently, particularly in Europe. It's a great concept. There are many tours to choose from on the DC by Foot website. You won't be disappointed.

“Well worth trying this”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We went on this walking tour at 7pm on May 19th. Bo was our guide. Our family really enjoyed this tour and found it to be very informative. We have teenagers and a young son of five and he was kept fully entertained. Even though this was towards the end of the day we did not feel tired as it was fun to be in a group and meet other visitors. We will definitely try this again!!
