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

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.

I would suggest you save some money and opt for the TourMobile tour of Arlington National Cemetery. Mark was not very informative, nor did he communicate much information that was not on a map of the Cemetery.

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

Finding the tour guide Mark was not easy. We asked at the information desk inside the visitors center who told us the group was just outside, but there was no obvious tour guide. In the end after asking a couple of different people we found Mark -...continued
