Along the way, he told us about the history of DC as well as pointing out other buildings of interest. He was patient and accommodating. I would highly recommend a tour with Edward.

Eddie was wonderful! We were a little late leaving our restaurant and Eddie picked us up at the restaurant instead of our hotel. He was very knowledgeable and told us interesting things that weren't in a guide book. It was an unusually hot and humid day and absolutely the best way to go was an evening tour instead of the heat of the day. Eddie tailored the tour to our requests. it was a fabulous evening!

From our trip out to Gettysburg (when we were treated to a CD/movie of the battle timelines), to the arrival and meeting up with our incredible story telling expert battle guide, it was such a wonderful experience. We never felt hurried or rushed, and getting to know our guide made the car ride to and from fun as well. Great Personality! The museum and cyclorama are worth the trip as well!

Eddie is an amazing tour guide and great guy! We've been on many Disney tours, including Adventures by Disney, so we have pretty high tour standards. Eddie is right up there with Disney! My 12 year old daughter was really impressed with the interesting stories he told us. I'm so glad we didn't opt for the big bus tour. It's worth it to spend a little extra because we saw so much. When we go back to DC, we will definitely do another tour with Eddie!

Disappointed, We were under the impression that Arlington was included in this tour. We learned that it had been changed. At least when I first booked the tour it was included. We should have been informed that it was no longer included. Although Edward was very informative and made our trip worth while. Thank you We couldn't have done it with you.

Edward was absolutely fantastic! He's an excellent guide and adjusted the tour for our interests. We saw exactly what we hoped to see and so much more. Whenever he could park the car he did (we brought our wheelchair sticker) and he'd come with us and point out things we never would have seen. He's lived in Washington his whole life and offered such an interesting context of how public space has evolved. Thank you!

My tour to Gettysburg started great with a video about the battle which I watched on the drive to Gettysburg from D.C. Edward had the timing all worked out from allowing me time for museum and movie and lunch prior to tour of the grounds. The park tour guide who Edward arranged also was informative and personable. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and learned so much from the exhibit, Edward, and the park guide.

Edward's role was as guide and driver. This means that he would drop us at the beginning of a memorial, let us walk it, pick us up at the end, driving us to the next one. In between stops, Edward explained what we were passing and explained what we were about to see. He also explained other information relevant to Washington. He was knowledgeable and talked with adults and children based upon interests. He even provided some current events. He accommodated a special request. Very pleasant person.

This tour was very educational for my husband and I. We were a bit apprehensive about getting around an unfamiliar city like D.C., but our tour guide, Edward, navigated all traffic seamlessly, had the timing down for each memorial we visited and was a wealth of information about each monument and the area in general. The cost of the tour was well worth it. If you are thinking of booking with this company, we would highly recommend them!

We had a great time with Eddy during our lay-over stop in Washington. With his car he took us around and walked with us at the stops whenever possible. He has an incredible knowledge of historical facts which he mixes with personal stories from earlier tours. Our kids (15 and 13) loved it too! He made Roosevelt come alive again, and we won't forget his personal stories at the Vietnam memorial or the Pentagon. We can really recommend this former history teacher and basketball coach! Thank you Eddy!

Got us close to the action with as little walking as possible!!! So important to my disabled husband with two bad knees and a bad back. Boy did Eddy know his history. The Pentagon's 9/11 memorial will hold special honor with Eddy's personal knowledge of the events that happened that day. Took us to a great place to eat lunch, he knows the city, and it was the best meal we had while we were there. My daughter wanted to sit next to me, not on a crowded bus 8 seats away. 6hrs later and no blisters on my feet

I am so satisfied with the fantastic job that Edward done for My Family Reunion, I would give him a plus added to the stars if it was possible. He was very friendly, all of the family members just loved the information that he shared with us. He worked excellent with the bus driver. The tour was one of the best that I have ever taken. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. Ivy Anderson

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. Anderson. It was a pleasure spending the day with you wonderful family.

Eddie did a wonderful job...very knowledgable and great with kids. With the 100 degree heat, his air conditioned guidance was the best way our family of 5 could have toured DC.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the rating. Your family was great.

It was a beautiful night to be in Washington, and Eddie made it an even more special time to be with my visiting brother. The evening was full of adventure, good information, and pleasure. We were both humbled and appreciated the time exploring the monuments. Eddie was both personable and accommodating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the rating. May God continue to bless your ministry in Baltimore.

From the moment we met Eddie, he was part of our family. I have never done a "private" tour like this before so this was an EXCELLENT first experience!!! His knowledge, his patience, his ability to relate the tour to our situation and his wonderful sense of humor will make our Washington D.C. trip a more meaningful memory. We didn't want the tour to end which I think was a good sign!!! We wish him best of luck and hope to see him when we return to D.C. again soon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a joy and an honor to be your guide. I hope all went well on Monday, and that your dad enjoyed the WW II when you took him . Take care.

Ed was a terrific tour guide. He certainly knows the city and history. Since it was Memorial Day Weekend, we encountered a lot of tour buses at the various sites and he knew the secrets of getting us in and out. The photo op at the Capitol gave us a sneak preview of the Memorial Day Concert since they were rehearsing. Ed is very personable. A suggestion is to check with the group before pick up. Our group of 6 adults fit in the car, but some groups may not fit or be able to climb into the 3rd seat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pat. I will also take your suggestion to heart. That 3rd seat in the Veracruz is a little diffcult to navigate.

Eddy is very reliable, knowledgeable and on time and flexible, and he even looked after our dog while we went into exhibits, etc. His driving is very good. We would definitely use him again and highly recommend using Eddy for a tour guide, there is no one better. He knows all the history and is a very experienced tour guide. We cannot say enough good things about Eddy. He is a real gentleman.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure showing you our Nation's Capital. Sophie be good.(big smile)
