Edward was great! I would give 10 stars if I could. He provided bottled water for us. Made sure my sister felt comfortable during the whole tour.
Wonderful way to become acquainted with Washington, DC. Talked about the history and development of the city of Washington, pointed out the various well known landmarks and what they represented. Very knowledgeable and responsive to my comments and questions. A fun experience, left me wanting to visit or, at least, do some research!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ms. Marks. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Edward was spectacular, we asked the for obscure tour of Washington and he delivered. Since we had seen most of the big monuments and memorials on our own we didn't want him to repeat these items. Think of his tour as an "A La Carte" tour. He took us to Theodore Roosevelt Island, Washington and Howard University, WWII Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, National Japanese Memorial, National Law Enforcement memorial to name a few. And there was so much more
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. ������

Awesome job Eddie! My wife, daughter and I all took a tour with Eddie and he did such an amazing job of touring and educating us all on the history of DC. We all enjoyed his history lesson along with his humble character and humorous impersonations while on the tour. This was my teenaged daughter's first trip to DC and she stated that it was a great history lesson & tour all wrapped up in one 4 hour tour. Thank you again Eddie!

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!\

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 did a great job on our tour. He is very knowledgeable and really good with the age group we had...high schoolers. He was easy to work with and professional. I would recommend him unconditionally. Great job Eddie!

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.
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!

Eddie, our guide did an excellent job. He was able to completely satisify an 8 year old and her grandmother who can only walk with the help of a walker. He had a great knowledge of Washington, D.C. We had a great day.

This is the second time we have worked with Edward as our tour guide - we asked for him in particular as the students always enjoy his tours!

Polite, knowledgeable, and experienced guide. We enjoyed our day very much!
We had a fantastic time with Ed today. He was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting to chat to. The time just raced by! We would definitely use him again if we returned to DC! Thanks Ed, and well done!
Eddie was great. He Welcomed us at the gate at union station. Eddie was very knowledgeable not just about the sites but also the politics going on. 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. Thanks Eddie.
A great tour by Edward - he was very knowledgeable and arranged our itinerary so that we were able to beat the large ques wherever possible. Thank you for a very informative and enjoyable day for our whole family. Would highly recommend doing a tour with you to anyone in the Washington area.
Edward was wonderful. Knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.
He is nice and professional. His knowledge is rich. My kids aged 16 and 17 years old and all my family are satisfied with the tour. My kids want to send him thank you. High recommended.

We thoughly enjoyed our time with Edward. He was very knowledgeable. He even made an extra stop for us. Would recommend him to others and would ask for him if we ever need another tour ourselves.

Wonderful ���������� Eddie was great. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Gettysburg. Highly recommendable!!!
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.
