We had a wonderful tour through Washington conducted by Hayden. We did a four hour tour with our two children 13 & 9 years. The children were engaged and entertained. Hayden was on time and met us at our hotel and gave a lot of option of how we could spend our 4 hours and he also called us the day before to re-confirm and to also ask if we had any further questions. I would highly recommend Hayden for your next trip to Washington DC.

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.

Wonderful tour, Hayden was very knowledgeable and showed us neighbourhoods we would never have known about. Very relaxing and good conversation. Hayden also gave us some tips for other places to visit during our stay. All in all a wonderful experience.

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 .

We had a short amount of time see Washington on our tour of the US. Hayden did an excellent job of covering as much ground as possible - he showed us all the highlights, answered all our questions, took us to some great photo stops - all with an eye on the watch. Overall, we left the city with a good sense of its various facets and history.

Hayden was a super knowledgeable and awesome guide! We had a couple hours to kill and wanted a tour that was engaging and somewhat eclectic... Hayden was amazing accommodating this request and was able to meet us at DuPont Circle. We walked around the neighborhood and Hayden explained tons of cool information about the various houses, embassies, and streets. Would recommend 11/10!

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 did a great job. He adjusted the tour to account for the fact that our granddaughter had a sports injury just before the trip. We bundled an SUV and driver with the tour and this also worked great. We enjoyed ourselves and when you have limited time in an unfamiliar place, this is the way to go.

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.

We had a great day of visiting Washington with Hayden. He knew about everything we could ask him about. His experience and knowledge of the city and it's buildings/monuments are impressive. Would definitely do a city tour with him again.

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!
