Mark was an outstanding guide, a most enjoyable and informative two hours. Although I am a native Washingtonian and a frequent visitor to the National Cathedral, I gained a greater appreciation for the Cathedral, its architectural history and the...continued

Members of my family and I went on this walking tour. We all really enjoyed it. The weather was beautiful with enough sun for us to see the gargoyles clearly. Our guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable and pointed out features we never had noticed...continued

The guide was great and was very patient in making sure you saw the gargoyles and grotesques he pointed out.

The morning was incredibly cold and windy. The tour guide called and asked if it would be ok to modify the tour to partially indoor, at the Cathedral, and partially outdoor. He was also accessible by phone, answering my questions before we meet....continued

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. His enthusiasm made it obvious to all how much he loves the gargoyles and grotesques. I think he should put together a book -- with lots of pictures. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Fun way to spend some time on a Sunday. Learned a lot about the Cathedral's construction. Definitely bring binoculars!

Great tour, however you need to dress for the weather. The cathedral sits on top of a hill and gets wind from every direction. Very gusty and very cold.

Great tour - Mark provided very interesting info about the Gargoyles and the sculptors. Made for an informative and fun afternoon. Although we'd recommend a springtime tour - you're outside the entire time:)

I enjoyed this very much. The stories given regarding the gargoyles and grotesques are great. Binoculars are a must.

It was a bit cold but the tour was great. Mark was awesome and very knowledgeable. Even though the tour was only supposed to be 1 hour, he made sure to give us time to warm up inside and didn't rush or miss any part of the tour. Mark also ended...continued

Our tour guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable about the sculptors and gargoyles/grotesques of the National Cathedral. He is quite personable. The tour around the outside was about an hour and half. The only negative is that I would change the name...continued

The tour goes rain or shine, in this case it was rain...driving rain, but the guide was proactive and we got to see the gargoyles in action. It was an excellent tour and literally wetted our desire to return and see more.

This was really fun! You definitely need binoculars since you are walking around the perimeter of the cathedral looking up at the gargoyles and grotesques. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We lucked out and had perfect weather. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and added anecdotes as he has lived in DC for a long time. It was interesting and a nice walk around the Cathedral, so wear comfortable sneakers. I highly recommend it.

What an interesting look at the cathedral! The tour guide was engaging and clearly passionate about the topic. Only downside was the freezing weather, as the cold and blustery winds did not make us want to linger.

While I enjoyed the tour, our Goldstar price was $31, significantly higher than the $10 currently on offer. The 1.5-hour tour wasn't worth what we paid.
