Paul was awesome. Very knowledgeable. Lots of great stories and really knows his history! We also had front row seats for the changing of the guard which was incredibly moving.

Paul, our guide, did a fantastic job with pointing out and sharing specific and interesting details along the walk. So much history to cover, but well worth The tour.

The tour of Arlington was very informative and enjoyable. Our guide, Jim, provided an excellent mix of raw information matched with anecdotes about the history of the place & the people who have been laid to rest there. Jim was also a warm host, who was curious about the questions that people asked. I would strongly recommend this tour! Nick

Very enjoyable. Tour guide Paul was interesting and informative. My only complaint is that it wasn't any longer. Two hours is great, but three with a short sit-down break (featuring additional excellent content) would be even better! Would highly recommend!

Excellent service and great guide. Felt like an intimate trip rather than aa total tourist. Guide was Paul, warm friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

Wonderful tour with Jim from GTDC. Brought the whole experience to life with his narrative. Was so impressed with the intimate number of guests, only 4 on the tour. Would highly recommend

Jim Garrett's knowledge of the history and the practical operation of Arlington National Cemetery is astounding. His 2 hour walking tour included memorials to well known US military figures and rank and file soldiers. Why soldiers and their spouses are in particular locations and revelations that you only get from walking among the memorials with an expert. The detail that goes into the ceremony of the changing of the guard that anyone who did not know the workings of Arlington would miss.We arrived ahead of schedule and toured the memorial to military women, which is well worth some time. You can only see a fraction of the Cemetery in a couple of hours. As it is toward the end of the tourist season we were only a party of about 10 people, which helped the experience. A memorable and thought provoking afternoon.

We had Paul as our tour guide for the capital tour as well as the Arlington cemetery tour. Once again, he was super knowledgeable, keeping our group entertained with facts and historical stories. The tour is both beautiful and solemn. We had 3 teenagers with us and they also felt it was a worthwhile experience.
