We had a wonderful tour with Jim Garrett on a very cold DC morning. He was very knowledgeable and personable. He had many personal connections which made the tour even more special.

This walking tour was wonderful. Jim did a fantastic job walking our group through the cemetery illuminating us to all the history within. So many soldiers and others we had no idea were there. A lot of good and touching stories. He got us to the changing of the guards in perfect time and told us the best place to be to view it. Definitely recommend this tour. Be ready for a lot of walking.
