Unforgettable Experience

Liam was an amazing tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and truly had the best interest of all parties involved. It is a lot of working, especially for the elderly and lots of uphill activity. It was a MUCH better experience with a tour guide as it highlights a couple of “hot spots” that would be missed if you toured on your own. Highly recommend!

I’d give this better than a 5 if we could. Liam was awesome, worth every dime and more. He was more knowledgeable and thorough than I could possibly imagine. I have no idea how someone can remember the specifics like he does. He took us to the obvious spots like JFK and The Changing of the Guards (took us to the backside where the Guards walk), but also took us to see many key military members with incredible stories. Seeing Joe Louis’ site was a great bonus.

Liam, our guide, was outstanding. As their host in Washington, DC, I accompanied dear friends from CA to the tour. Both my parents and grandparents are buried at Arlington. I learned a lot of new facts from him. It was very hot and Liam was very accommodating to his tour participants with his knowledge of shady parts, water fountains, etc, of the cemetery. The guarantee to experience the Changing of the Guard was fabulous.

Liam is a walking, talking library of facts. She speaks loudly and clearly so all can hear. The walking pace is slow. He welcomes questions and has engaging anecdotes. I highly recommend.
