Despite a large group of 40 (!) the guide had a voice that carried so there was no problem hearing her at each of the stops. She was courteous and thoughtfully asked after one participant who was waiting for someone. I look forward to more tours...continued

We went in spite of it being a very rainy day. We dressed in rain gear and still had a most enjoyable time. It was very pleasant and the tour guide was very interesting and informative. I will definitely go on more walks with Washington Walks!...continued

The guide was quite entertaining and informative. I had hoped to learn more about earlier times in Georgetown when it was a destination for immigrants. The focus of this tour is on Georgetown's recent history as a community of wealthy residents.

The guide, Chris, was excellent. She kept the group together, answered questions, and generally did a fine job. Only 2 minor complaints - with pre-registered people and walk ups, we totalled about 25. This was on the verge of being too many. To...continued

The guide was very friendly, funny and had a lot of basic information plus interesting tidbits about the houses and area. I would go on it again. The only thing that was frustrating was how those on the tour showed no respect for those living in...continued

The tour route is interesting, since it gets you off of the beaten path of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue. However, the tour seems more focused on modern "celebrities" than explaining the history of the area.

So, if contemporary "society"...continued

Being a local person, the lengthy history of Georgetown at the beginning of the walk was perhaps too detailed. Other than that the presentation was very well done. The historic significance which Georgetown played in forming or influencing...continued
