  • This was an amazing walking tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Ours was a small group and we were able to see more than we thought possible during the two hour tour. Several times, other visitors were hanging close by just to try and hear our guide's explanations. He positioned us in the best location to witness the changing of the guard at The Tomb of the Unknowns for a closeup view. This was an excellent value!

  • Satisfactory.

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable and by walking we got to see and experience more.

  • The Arlington National Cemetery Guided Walking tour was amazing and worth every penny! Liam was amazing he answered all of our questions, took us through the cemetery, timed our tour perfectly to get to see the Changing of the Guards, showed us where to stand to get the best pictures and lighting, was extremely knowledgeable and told us so many historical facts. Having a tour guide was so helpful to really learn what we were getting to see, and was absolutely perfect. The tour was about 2 1/2 miles long, and filled with amazing facts and sights throughout each step!

  • Liam did an excellent job of taking us all around the cemetery. He was extremely knowledgeable about the cemetery and national history. He used all of the time allotted and has a plethora of knowledge to share.

  • Liam our guide was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining with his stories. The factoids he provided and the route he took made for a very enjoyable experience.....

  • This tour was amazing! Liam was our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, engaged, and clearly passionate about his work. He was on time and moved at a pace comfortable for us. He also recommended other interesting sights in the area. I would definitely recommend this tour and Liam specifically.

  • Absolutely perfect! We were a small group of 4 and Liam was our guide. Very personable and knowledgeable. Made it a great experience!!

  • Liam was a great tour guide. I really enjoyed seeing Arlington this way in a small group, the walking is/was enjoyable and he knows where best to position the group to watch The Changing of the Guard ceremony for photos, sun exposure etc. I highly recommend taking this tour @ 8 AM during the summer/hot months. It was plenty warm during the 2-hour tour/walk but it was not TOO hot/humid yet. I'm not that old and in decent shape but personally, I would not want to do that tour in the afternoon during the hot season. Also, at 8 AM, there are really no crowds to speak of relatively. By the time our tour was over @ 10, the masses were rolling in........

  • Liam is an excellent tour guide. He has a vast knowledge and respect for Arlington Cemetery and what it means to our nation. I would highly recommend this tour if you enjoy walking. There are a lot of hills so be prepared for a good work out. TAKE WATER with you especially during this summer heat.
