Here are some comments I received from guests who joined me on the walking tour of Arlington National Cemetery after Veterans Day 2022:
"Simply incredible! Awesome experience!
I have taken tours all over the world to include many in the Washington D.C area but this was the best tour I've taken.
Allen is passionate, extremely knowledgeable and caring. Allen is a wealth of information and insight and his tours go far beyond what other tours may cover. He leaves no stone. Every detail is covered. Allen’s superb use and understanding of history, culture and people make each monument come alive. There were parts of the tour when I was literally brought to tears by Allen’s excellent explanation of a monument.
Quite frankly, Allen is very much in his own class where it comes to tours. This was time extremely well spent. I highly encourage you to take his tour! You will not be disappointed!"

"Good morning, Allen. To say that I enjoyed your tour is an understatement. There was so much to see and so much to learn. All I can say is that 2 1/2 hours was just the tip. I wouldn't change a thing except that I were able to stay longer. Interesting and captivating. My sister said "oh my gosh, I think we all would have just followed him home if he kept talking to us." I loved it. And I'm looking forward to more tours with Monumental Wals. Thank you so much for including us on your tour.

Here's what some guests from New York State had to say about their tour of the National Mall:
"We were recommended to Allen's Monumental Walks Tours of the National Mall, and we were not disappointed! While everyone in our group had been to DC before, we all agreed we learned much more with Allen. The attention to the details of the memorials - and their meaning and significance - was amazing. Allen's knowledge and personal insight was very much appreciated. Unfortunately, our tour scheduled tour of Arlington National Cemetery with Allen did not work out due to torrential rain. We visited several days later and wished Allen was with us. The next time, we will definitely take his Arlington National Cemetery tour."
