This was one of the most enjoyable tours of any place I have ever been. Our leader, Derrick was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and interested in everyone seeing the things they wanted to see as well as pointing out things we never would have noticed. He was the perfect tour guide and Arlington national was everything we hoped that it would be.

Jim is by far the best tour guide I have ever came across in my time of traveling and doing tours through different cities. He is a 6 star tour guide and has provided his tours with history and knowledge of Arlington they would not find anywhere else. I am prior military and military district of Washington Honor Guard for the Coast Guard and have never came across someone as passionate about the history of Arlington! Would do it again next time I visit if I had him as a tour guide.

Jim provided our family with a great tour of Arlington Cemetery. He was extremely knowledgeable of the history behind many of those buried there and did a fantastic job guiding us through those areas of highest interest. We went at a reasonable pace and had plenty of time for our photos. Jim also got us a front and center spot to view the changing of the guard ceremony - a must-see experience! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get the full Arlington experience.

The entire walking tour was excellent, our tour guide Derrick was versed in the history of the entire location. And considering his personal connection to the cemetery, he made the experience even better. He was extremely knowledgeable and put my wife and I in a great place to view the changing of the guards. He also was able to guide my family to our my friend’s burial location.
