Review from Goldstar Member

This seemed to be a rouge tour of the gargoyles - our guide told us that our tour group - as a group I'd suppose - wasn't allowed actually IN the Cathedral - seemed weird. Some of the information was really good, but it seemed to be a better idea...continued

Although the meeting at the beginning was a bit unorganized, the tour was fantastic! The guide was very knowledgable and provided lots of information and stories. It was my first trip to the National Cathedral and I can't wait to go back. I...continued

Review from BFL

Mark was a wonderful, very knowledgeable guide. You can tell he has really studied the subject. Lots of humor about the subject, too.
** Suggestion - be specific with the check-in address. We waited on the corner of Mass. & Wisconsin for about 20...continued

Review from arthorizons

This was very fun. I only wish that we were told to bring binoculars and when I told the guide that we didn't, he would have told us about purchasing them inside for a nominal fee. I see now that "bring binoculars" has now been added to the site.

Review from Binq

I enjoyed the Gargoyle Who Ate DC tour, and was impressed with Mark's knowledge of all these wonderful carvings, and of the building of the cathedral in general. The name of the tour lead me to believe that this tour would appeal to children, so I...continued

I enjoyed this walking tour recently on a sunny Sunday afternoon with a friend. The guide Mark does these tours with a limited number of people, capped at 12. I was at the Cathedral early and while walking around, believe I bumped into the...continued

Review from DaphStanley

I would not recommend going to this event in sub-optimal temperature. The wind and cold air made it unbearable. We had to leave early. It is very interesting and worth the time, just go when its nice out.

Review from indyrunner1978

I've been wanting to take this tour since I moved to DC 7 years ago and am so happy to finally get it done! A fantastic tour - I've always loved the cathedral but I had no idea it had such character (and so many stories). Our guide was really...continued

My tour guide, Mark, was was very knowledgeable and contagiously enthusiastic. His familiarity with the architects, sculptors and carvers gave a wonderful historical perspective to the tour.

Review from Nancy Rohde

The tour was very interesting and the guide was really knowledgeable. Binoculars are a must and less than half of our group realized that. The tour was slowed by people lining up to view the gargoyles through the guide's camcorder. We received...continued

A delightful event! It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day, and that helped. The tour, the guide, gave us a wealth of information, about the architecture, the gargoyles, their creators, the artists, the ideas behind the sculptures, the chronology...continued

Great tour! Would recommend not going in January when the wind chill is 10 degrees! :) The tour guide is fun and informative. He patiently points out unique and hidden treasures at the Cathedral. Bring your binos!!

Great tour! Mark is very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend taking this tour. It is unfortunate that the church won't let Mark take the tour inside. There is a different tour that is run by the church that may take people inside (and...continued

Great tour of the gargoyles. Mark, the guide, knows his stuff and is engaging. Definitely a great way to get to know the "residents" of the National Cathedral.
