Great overview of the locations we asked for! Interesting perspective of the "whys" and encouragement to think about the various aspects of situations vs. just hearing the historical perspective. Met our timeline and our agenda just as we planned and discussed. Great day in DC!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Christina, thanks for your time and conversation. I'm always learning each day and was happy to share what I love about DC with you all. It was a great day. Thank you!

Best tour guide and private small group tour of Washington that I have ever had and have been here many times. Flexible schedule, knowledgeable personable guide made the trip as good as it could have been. Our family could not have been more pleased.

Tamara Norris

United States

Tour: Downtown DC Civil Rights History Walking Tour, Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Date: Mar 12/18

This private tour was booked for a group of university students and their faculty as part of a class on the history of the civil rights movement. Tim pulled together a cohesive tour that included all the sights our faculty wanted students to see. He was wonderful to work with, and he even made a suggestion for a (free) site that we hadn't thought to include. He is clearly knowledgeable about his subject. The lead faculty member called the tour "informative and engaging." Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This was one of my favorite tours as I rarely get to work with university level students. I really enjoyed the discourse, their insights, and willingness to delve into the deep historical implications of DC and American history. Thank you for booking this tour and sending such wonderful students of history.

Date: Jan 19/18

Tim gave an excellent tour around DC. He is well informed on the area and history. His previous experience as a teacher made his style engaging and interesting. He customised a tour for us and appealed to ages 14-55. His personality is easygoing and this made for a comfortable enjoyable tour. Tim is the best!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, this was a great day. Y'all were great partners and this was enjoyable day for me as well -- from start to finish. Thank you!
