This was my second time taking a tour with Eddie and he was just as great the second time as he was the first. I highly recommend taking a tour from Eddie he fills the entire ride between stops with facts and fun information about the next location you are going to. He was great, I hope to do a tour with him again!\

Tour: Day Trip to Antietam Battlefield Private Tour, Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Date: Oct 25/19

I had a great day touring Antietam with Edward and the battlefield guide he had organised on site. Edward is knowledgable about the events and also general regional history and also very personable, he was fun to spend the day with! The battlefield guide had a very deep knowledge of the history of the battle and was amazing at bringing it all to life at the various locations we visited. Overall a fun and informative experience!

I came from the UK to visit Washington (on my own) and I'd always wanted to see Gettysburg. I managed to do this thanks to Edward D and a lovely guide called Darryl (Gettysburg guide). The day absolutely flew past and my guides were friendly, informative and knowledgeable at every stage. The air conditioned car was an absolute godsend and I got to see the main battle sites. Thank you so much for putting up with me. I would defo do it again.

Edward was an exceptional guide. My grandson and I were totally surprised by the extent and depth of our tour. He was not only knowledgeable and courteous but also fun to be with and flexible. The anecdotes he shared were memorable and valuable. We have never been disappointed with Tours by Locals guides and Edward rates highly among them

Eddie was a great tour guide and driver, getting us to Gettysburg on time despite an unusual traffic problem (sinkhole on the GW Parkway!). My 11-year old nephews so thoroughly enjoyed the day that for the rest of our stay in DC, when figuring out how to get to other attractions, the boys would say "Can't we just call Eddie? He could get us there!" I highly recommend this tour and the tour guide. Eddie provided lots of information and made sure that we made the most of our visit to Gettysburg.

Tour: #15975, Old Town Alexandria/Mount Vernon Estate Private tour, Washington, District of Columbia, United States    view tour
Date: Apr 18/19

More a transportation way to Mount Vernon because the guide does not enter on the property. Alexandria was seen from the car only, we were lucky we asked to be left in a nice place for a lunch. The guide indicated a very good local full of history. It is better to rent a car for visiting the region instead the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry that your expectations were not met. As the description in the tour state's I am unable to escort you through sites due to limited parking. As for Old Town, there is one stop in the city (Christ Church). This tour was designed to maximize the time at the estate and give an overview of the Old Town area. At the time there was an option for this tour to include an escort which has since been unpublished due to lack of interest.

We booked this tour not realizing that it coincided with Spring break and the Cherry Blossom Festival parade - all streets around the mall were blocked! In spite of this, Edward navigated his way around the congestion, and we were able to see all of the sites that we wanted to see. As an extra bonus, he took us to Georgetown university where my granddaughter is interested in attending. Edward's knowledge of the city and it's history is unsurpassed. Thank you Edward - you're the best!

His choice of sites was great and his timing perfect to get us back to the station on time. The car was very comfortable for a family of four. The 12 and 15 year old also really enjoyed it.

Our guides (yes two, Eddie and Tracey) provided us with a lot of very interesting and relevant knowledge of American presidents, history and other information from the DC area (relevant buildings, museums and sites etc). They drove us from site to site allowing us to walk and experience memorials and historic places in a most efficient manner without any feeling of being rushed around. When they left us I asked my wife if the tour met her expectations and she said that it exceeded it by far.

Amazing tour giving fantastic insight into the battle at every stage. The knowledge and passion of the guide was matched by the ability to physically stand at the location of every pinical point of the battle. Would highly recommend to whoever has even just a fleeting interest... this is a must to anyone visiting Washington / Gettysburg.

We were able to visit (not just drive by the many monuments) in the city. He spent a lot of time on our drive explaining the many buildings. I would highly recommenend Eddie for any tour of the city that you might take. He was very nice while being professinal and had a very good knowledge of the city and of history. Interesting

He was informative and even took us by a great sight we didn't plan on seeing. A great way to knock the monuments off the list. When dropping us off he made suggestions of things to do in our area.

Edward was AWESOME!! He gave us just the right amount of information and brought us to all the tourist-y spots that we needed to get to. Each time he dropped us off, he clearly marked our route & gave us a meeting time so we could keep on schedule. There were times when we took longer than scheduled, all we had to do was give him a text or call and he was quick to re-group. His car was clean and comfy, and fit 6 comfortably. Wish I could have him as a tour guide for the rest of our stay here.

Eddie is a true professional and would recommend that you take advantage of his services. He gets you as close to the action as possible. This is especially appreciated at the Pentagon Memorial. 'Ask the big bus companies how far away they park'. With that aside, he knows his stuff and that is important to me. He is a second generation guide and it shows.
