Tim’s tours are awesome! He’s a marine vet with a true passion for the revolutionary war history. We got lucky and it was just our group with him, and boy, did he know his stuff! He showed us great historic spots, and answered all of our questions. He’s kind, intelligent and passionate about what he does. I strongly recommend taking a tour with him and Alexandria History Tours!"
