Excellent introductory tour of the National Cathederal. Mark is very knowledgeable. Can go back on my own to observe more of the wonderful Cathederal carvings. Binoculars essential.

At first I didn't see any gargoyles. Minutes into our tour I saw dozens. These functional art forms have a wonderful history. Our tour guide, Mark, pointed out artists and carvers used real people as well as whimsical imaginary creatures as...continued

I do not know what happened. I was 20 min. late because of the traffic getting into Georgetown but I was able to find the tour. The guide was apparently very late also (according to the guides at the cathedral and from his apology to the group...continued

The tour guide never showed up. Waited 40 minutes. What a waste of time. Will never ever do anything like this again. Drove total of 65 miles with my daughter for a monumental disappointment. Requested a refund from Goldstar and still waiting for...continued

The guide was great, tour was interesting. Had I checked the website for the tour, I would have known to bring binoculars. Either binoculars or a camera with a good zoom are needed to see many of the gargoyles.

The only negative was that...continued

Our guide, Mark, is fabulous... incredibly knowledgeable, great with questions, friendly, just the perfect morning activity! The cathedral is amazing and the stories behind the structure quite fascinating. Small enough group that it's easy to...continued

Very informative. The tour leader has a lot of knowledge and perspective. Learned a lot about construction of the cathedral. Will never look at the cathedral in the same way after being on this tour. Note: Meeting location is different from...continued

Tour guide Mark was very knowledgable, and I hope to attend other Cathedral art/sculpture tours in the future.

This was a very informative tour. It was billed as "an introduction"-- HOW to look at gargoyles, so even if one forgot the binoculars, or the weather was not perfect, one can come back and continue another time. The speaker was knowledgeable, not...continued

The tour is very interesting. I actually thought it was a neighborhood tour but it is the grounds and exterior of the National Cathedral. Bring binoculars.

The walking tour was quite interesting and fun. Very windy and cold however. Definitely bring binoculars. Lasts about an hour.

Knowledgeable guide. Need to suggest tourists bring binoculars for this tour. It was difficult to see all the gargoyles and grotesques.

Very interesting, but not for younger children (our son is 6 and didn't like it). Guide knows a lot about it. BINOCULARS ARE A MUST, as is a jacket. We didn't have both and left the tour early, frustrated that we didn't see the gargoyles that well...continued

Although you could only see the west and north side because the other sides were fenced off due to the earthquake damage, the tour was quite good and very interesting. Mark, our guide, was very knowledge of architecture, gargoyles, and religion...continued

Great insider information on a landmark that I've visited many times. The low-key guide was full of information on the individual features. Great for folks with "inquiring minds"!

Interesting summary and engaging guide. A small group; easy to ask questions, which added to the enjoyment.
