Mark was great! He really knows his stuff, and the stories he told went beyond the pretty architecture and really gave us the opportunity to get to know some of the colorful characters of DC's past.

This tour was very in-depth and comprehensive, and felt tailored to who we were (aka. if we had kids with us, or were out-of-town tourists, I expect the tour would have been adjusted to fit). Mark did a great job.

Mark made this a really great walk. He is a wealth of information and very entertaining. He came with 2 notebooks of photos that helped us really appreciate Washington in the early 1900's and his enthusiasm is contagious.

Nice way to spend some time in the Dupont Circle area. Mark, the guide was very knowledgeable and informative. You'll get a lot of local history and some laughs about some of the outrageous characters that lived in these houses.

Pretty basic walking tour. Nice to be outside and learn some history of the houses, but nothing special.
