Special trip for my 13 year old granddaughter. Wanted to see as many monuments as possible, the Capital, and Whitehouse. Unfortunately had rain all day. Hayden truly saved the day. He adjusted the schedule to get us as much outside time as possible given the weather. We were out in the rain a bit and then back in a museum. His ability to relate to my daughter was nothing short of outstanding. His knowledge of the District as well as history also amazing. I would most definitely recommend him.

If your looking for a guide who has lived in DC for most of their lives, one who knows what all of the other guides know and then some (like the short cuts and alleys) and is driven by his own passion for this great city, then Hayden is your man.

Hayden was a pleasure to spend time with. We had some rough weather but we pivoted and he created a great itinerary and made the very best of the day. I would recommend Hayden to my friends.

We had a really interesting and well planned day tour with Hayden. He also gave us lots of information and ideas for the rest of our week in Washington. Thanks
Hayden gave my wife and I a great tour of Washington. He had a lot of interesting tidbits of history that helped make sense of why certain things are the way they are. I had previously asked about getting to know a bit more about JEWISH Washington and he had done some homework before hand and was able to take us to some historical sites. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.
Hayden met us at our Hotel and we started by heading to Washington monument . 6 hours later we had a complete tour of the major monuments , Capitol Hill, Tower , museums review along the mall . He made time for lunch and coffee break . Hayden had neat stories on the different places . Highly recommend him and would not do it any other way . Big bus tours don't give you the little stories .

Hayden gave us exactly the tour we were hoping for. He knew so many interesting facts about the history of the DC area and about many of the buildings, plus he gave us a good overview of how to find out way around. In addition to the usual sight-seeing we expected, he took us to places and showed us things that we wouldn't have found on our own. This was our first experience with Tours By Locals, so glad we found out about it. We highly recommend this tour with Hayden!

We had a wonderful experience today with Hayden. He pointed out things we never would have noticed or understood without his knowledge! His introductory tour was just what we needed to get our "feet wet" and help us know what areas of DC we want to explore some more on our own. Especially helpful was his explaining the metro system to us. Five stars for this guide!

Hayden was awesome! Hayden was extremely courteous, deeply knowledgeable about the history of DC and very responsive to our many questions as he guided us around DC. We could not have wished for a better DC guide!

We recently did a custom tour with Hayden. It was great and we would highly recommend Hayden. He was very informative and took time to help us understand how to get around DC on our own. We definitely give him and the tour 5 Stars.

Weather for this walking tour was less the desirable, we all made the best of it. Hayden provided a good over view of the city's design and layout. All of our questions were answered. We always enjoy a private guided tour of any city we visit. This time spent was well worth our time.. Thank you...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cold and drizzly -- not good touring weather! Thank goodness for the Mall shuttle bus!
Thanks Hayden for your very informative commentary about the history of Washington and the United States in general. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you today.

It was a good tour, hot but the guide was very knowledgable.
Julie HughesUnited Kingdom
Hayden was brilliant. Knowledgeable, interesting and energetic (despite the heat and humidity). We found him an all-round good chap! He was also very helpful both before the tour and in giving us tips for the next day. He was early - and the tour over-ran the time. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Hayden.
Robert EthierUnited States
Hayden was amiable, knowledgeable, and organized. He offered us choices and options, which I liked. Very pleased with our tour.

We had a great and educational day with Heyden in Washington. We asked to see the 'famous' things, and we did. Heyden is knowledgeable and passionate about the tour. It was really nice.
Jean HormellUnited States
Four of us enjoyed our time with Hayden very much. Lots of interesting facts and highlights pointed out to us. A time to get reacquainted with the impressive historical attractions of the city and introduced to the new.
Bill BouchardUnited States
My wife & I and 5 of our grandchildren were in DC for six days. We booked Hayden's 6 hour introductory tour for our first day in DC. Not only were we able to visit most of the monuments/landmarks, but by days end we were well versed in navigating the city; either by foot, bus or metro. Thanks Hayden
Great tour, great and knowledgeable guide! What a fantastic experience! Well worth it! Thanks! Patrick
Irwin AltmanUnited States
Hayden is extremely knowledgeable and is excited to share the information with you. The latter makes the tour very enjoyable. He is also very accommodating as we had several specific requests and he met them all.
Heather HughesUnited States
Hayden was an incredible source of knowledge. Although we were unable to go on our tour due to extremely inclement weather, he still met with us to go over all the wonderful sites that Washington had to offer. I would recommend his tour to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As bad and cold a rain as I have ever seen here (in early June!) -- all we could do was meet at a convenient coffee shop and go over the map, learn how to get places and where interesting stuff is, and then a tutorial in the (mercifully) nearby Metro on how to ride the local subway. A sort of virtual tour. Very nice of her to write something.

Excellent tour! Hayden demonstrated and excellent knowledge of the city and its history—highly recommend.

Excellent tour by Hayden. We covered all the major sights in our 6 hour tour - walking 7.5 miles in beautiful Spring weather. Hayden was so knowledgeable - you could not have a better guide for DC. David Thomson
