Interesting tour that provided a lot of information about Washington history and also specific buildings and their occupants. Christina was an excellent guide who was easy to hear and very knowledgeable.

I have loved every tour with Washington Walks. Their founder (Carolyn) is so committed to exceeding expectations. Each of the guides she hires is articulate, knowledgable and enthusiastic about their neighborhood visited. I have lived in the...continued

The walking tour was wonderful! Well worth the time and money. The history of Dupont circle is fasinating. We drive past the buildings and other points of interest everyday without realizing their significance. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

The weather was cool but wet and the group was small so everyone could hear well. The guide was very knowledgeable. It was something I wanted to try and I enjoyed it.

I enjoy these types of events. However, I and several others thought that we would be going inside. It was a real hot day and it made it difficult to keep up and hear what was being said. The leader was knowledgeable and had a lot of tidbits of...continued

If you've lived in DC for awhile, you probably will know as much as the guide. It felt as though the guide was groomed for this job..in the surface level facts...not a historian at all. very gossipy information about the people who lived in...continued

Great insight into the area. We were able to get a better understanding of the history of the area and the people and countries involved. Wish more facts were given.

Our tour was a wonderful walk through the early days of one of Washington DC's more elaborate sections. Our guide was very knowledgable and had lots of anecdotes to share. The 2 hour walk was packed with information that kept our thoughts off...continued

This was a very informative tour, wherein we explored the Dupont Circle area and learned about a number of embassys in the area. Even though the guide was more than one hour late, she was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting.

The tour was very interesting and the pictures the guide had were a very nice compliment. I do think the group was way too big (over 42 people) and it was difficult to hear the guide unless you were right next to her.
