"A fun way for Washingtonians to explore their city through the lens of history."

- Roll Call

"This tour was amazing! I could almost feel like a young detective solving Lincoln's murder. It gave us a hands-on experience that we thoroughly enjoyed."

- Patron Anna B.

"This is a great tour! It's a close look at the Lincoln assassination, with details on the overall conspiracy that don't get covered in U.S. history classes. It's also a nice, easy walk and a way to see the city from a totally different perspective. Fun for all ages. "

- Patron Ann Marie G.

"The history under our feet becomes very apparent when you do a walking tour. I highly recommend it. #HistoryonFoot"
