Terrific experience with a great guide. A bargain!! Visiting the horses at the Fort Myer stables was a nice counterpoint to the contemplative spirit that a trip to Arlington NC always inspires. Wear comfortable walking shoes (be prepared to walk,...continued

I thought it was great! It was a little confusing when we arrived but no big deal. It was just a bit too long but Mark was knowledgeable and it was a nice group of people. I was very glad we did it and would recommend it to others.

I really liked this tour. Mark was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. This is a REAL walking tour, so make sure you are up for a 3 hour trek with comfy shoes. The information was very useful and I learned so much. The stable was a special...continued

Mark did a terrific job. It might be an idea to have tours of two different levels, one for kids and people with no special interests, and a higher level one much more specific about art, history, bios of the people and the cemetery. There is...continued

This was one of the best tours I've done in YEARS!! Our group was blessed with beautiful weather for a walking tour in Arlington Cemetery. A group of about 20, we first walked to the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown...continued

Great overall tour of the cemetery and stables. Would have loved to learn more about the stables rather than just walking around the horses. but neat to go visit them nonetheless

Guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and interactive. An excellent experience overall and a bargain. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes because a lot of the grounds covered on foot. John F.

It was a great, informative tour, but perhaps too long... We had to leave after 3 hours and it seemed like there was at least another half hour to an hour worth of stuff. I dont believe the website mentioned the tour length, so that would be...continued

The tour of Arlington Cemetary was terrific and Mark the tour guide was the best. He provided great insight into the creation of Arlington during the Civil War and shared lots of details about that I had not heard before. He was able to answer...continued

Think most of the inforamtion is very similar to talk on Tour Bus. Difficult to be too different.

Wonderful. mark was knowledgeable and added interesting comments and facts. Wish there was a longer tour that went into even more depth about some of the graves and allowed more time to look at gravestones. Thanks, Mark, for a great tour!

The weather was crappy (cold rain and snow), but the tour was great. Mark is well versed in the colorful history and highly entertaining facts of both Arlington Cemetary and Ft. Myers' stables. I would recommend this tour to anyone, rain or shine.

It was great. Mark was very approachable. He answered everyone's questions and was very patient. I did not feel rushed at all. In fact he took more time than was designated for the tour because the group was so into it. His knowledge of the...continued

This walking on foot tour was great. It was much better than just taking the bus around the cemetary -- it was a real experience. Our host was very knowledgable and it felt as if we were walking around with an old friend who knew all the best...continued

Bring water, trail mix or light snack...it is a lot of walking! I brought carrots for the horses (you still need to ask permission to feed at the stable).
Wear comfortable shoes. Save your not quite interesting questions for the tour director in...continued

Mark of Speed of Life tours was terrific. Be aware, there are no signs; if you ask at the visitors desk they know where to tell you to assemble prior to the tour but it's up to you to figure that out. The stables were my main reason for taking...continued

This was one of the best tours I've ever had. The best in DC. The guide was a consummate professional with a delightful, appealing personality and a genuine interest in his topic and his guidees. What a treat it was to be with him on a memorable...continued
