Our guide was very well informed and interesting. He spoke too fast at times, but that is the only criticism that I would have.
Liam was very knowledgeable and made sure our group made it up to the top of the hill. He knew where graves were that were not on his normal tour. Great visit.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Two hours is the perfect amount of time to tour the cemetary. The only confusing piece was the instruction to ‘meet at the main entrance’. The meeting spot with the tour guide was actually inside the main entrance past the security screening area. Might want to change this instruction.
Our tour of Arlington was inspirational, informative, thought provoking and everything we hoped for. Even with 30+ folks in the group, we could hear and learned so much. Thank you Viator!
Our tour was better than we ever thought is could be. Liam was our guide and he was knowledge, energetic and entertaining. He kept us moving but always answered any questions we had. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!
I recomend taking the walking tour. Ask for Liam as your guide. He's knowledgable and a great source of storylines. You won't regret the experience. Thank you...Steve and Linda
Liam was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, even when a lady was hateful to him. We enjoyed the tour very much.
This was money well spent. Liam our tour guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and very conscientious of the fact we had younger children and never walked to fast so they could keep up and enjoy the experience.
Excellent tour of a memorable place to see. Liked walking tour despite being a cold morning. Liam, our guide, made the tour. He gave us much information about Arlington, it’s history, it’s statistics and it’s events. Recommend to everyone wanting to tour Arlington.
Enjoyed our walking history tour of Arlington National Cemetary. Liam was respectful, insightful and knowledgeable about the cemetary. Very interesting commentary on the origins and those laid to rest there. The changing of the guard was a touching tribute to the grave of the unknown soldier. My sister and I enjoyed the Tour immensely.
Liam was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable. The tour was uphill for the most part. Wear comfortable shoes. October is the best time of year to go on this tour. The weather is perfect!
We Lliam as our guide and he was excellent excellent. He knew when to stop and When to keep going and was full of all the information we needed. He has an exceptional knowledge of theCemetery, more than would be expected.
Liam was an excellent guide. He demonstrated a great deal of subject and area knowledge, and was happy to answer any and all questions. We came away feeling there was nothing about the cemetery we did not know.
Excellent tour. Liam was fantastic as our leader. He shared so much good information and knew where everything was. Would recommend to others who want to see the highlights of Arlington Cemetery tour.
Excellent tour. The walking guide, Liam, was great. He provided context to what we were seeing along with history. We watched a bunch of the riding tours pass us, and we did spend 2 hours at the Cemetery (longer than trolley tour) but it was well worth it.
Way to go Liam! He had a wealth of information! Such a contrast to our morning Capitol Hill tour! When I return with the rest of my family I will request Liam for a Capitol Hill tour!
Great tour guide who was a virtual encyclopedia of Arlington and local history. Be ready for a long and hilly walk but it's totally worth it.
The tour guide is amazing. Great knowledge and perfect way of informing you with highly relevant and interesting information. Liam is the guide. Gary and Linda
Coming from Australia I wanted to do a tour of Arlington National Cemetery with my son. We were blessed beyond measure to have Liam as our awesome tour guide. He was EXCEPTIONAL. Liam knew everything about Arlington and showed a great love of his job. I would HIGHLY recommend doing this tour. We came away in awe! Thank you!
Wow! Liam was an incredible guide - so educated and informed about every aspect of the cemetery. Even though it was a small group tour, we were the only ones so it became a private tour! He timed it perfectly so we were there for the changing of the guards, a truly special experience. Our entire family really enjoyed this tour.
