Our young guide was on-time and was friendly and pleasant. However, I felt that the tour was interesting, very light in depth - not much more than I would have gotten by reading the signs and walking along myself. This tour had a lot of long walks in between monuments, and I felt that time would have been better spent with a running guide commentary rather than walking along in silence or having him chat privately to just one tour member. Also, I wondered a bit at the route, which included some retracing of steps - for example, we walked alongside the long Roosevelt monument and then had to backtrack to go through the monument - why not take us the other way around to avoid backtracking? Anyway, I learned some things and visited some monuments I would never have otherwise, so it was worthwhile but not great.

Did not enjoy this tour at all, you need to get somebody who actually knows the history of the tour instead of giving us what the tour's perception was, boringggggggggggggggg Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The tour was relaxing and enjoyable..not rushed, so the pace was leisurely, which would have been helpful to know beforehand. Also, it was inconvenient to end the tour away from where it started, which we did not realize ahead of time. Please emphasize this in your ads so that the planning can assist in getting back to transportation at the end of the tour.
Our guide was pleasant and rather new. She provided very general information that was helpful and I think that a more in-depth presentation will develop after she gains more expeience. Knowing a bit more about each monument, with a focus on the architecture and debates about the final form also would have been enjoyable.
I would recomment the tour.
