Great Experience! Eddie was great!
Jun 2021 • Family
Had a wonderful time. Went for my youngest kids graduation. Eddie really knows his Washington history. We learned so much! He was so friendly. Felt like we were on a trip with just a member of the family. He went above and beyond to make our experience Great! Would highly recommend using them. They were less expensive and it was just us. Thank you Eddie from your Georgia family!!

Great Family night tour of D.C
Mar 2020
Eddie was a fantastic tour guide and driver. Loved that it was just our family in his mini-van - it was like a family friend giving us a personal tour.
In addition to the main attractions around the Mall and Tidal Basin, it was a treat to get to venture across the bridge to the US Marine's memorial as well as the Pentagon 9/11 memorial.
I highly recommend Eddie for your family or small group tour!

Feb 2020
Seeing the monuments at night has been on my "bucket list." This tour did not disappoint. The small group made the experience more personal. Eddie is an encyclopedia of DC facts, history and trivia, so I learned quite a bit! We had time to walk around the major sites, but were never kept waiting when we were done. He even dropped us by our hotel at the end of the tour. Perfect!

Best Night Tour for small group or family
Feb 2020
In a nutshell:
1. The 14 year old and 60 year old (and me the 42 year old) all loved it.
2. Eddie drives a minivan and does not take more than 6 people total -- and he is an incredibly safe driver --- more than anybody else around us on the road that night.
3. The small group and car gets you closer to the monuments, and is faster to load than any bus tour --- the bus tour people looked way to large.
4. Eddie knows his history in and out --- and grew up in DC, so he has a breadth and depth of knowledge that brings everything to life!
5. Eddie gives clear, excellent directions for walking around the monuments. Essentially, he gives history during the driving parts, and gives you 15-30 minutes at each monument to explore on your own. It is a perfect balance.
6. I was so surprised at how striking the monuments are at night --- because the background buildings fade out of view, it seems to cast a focused reverance on each monument, which is fitting -- and even my phone took great pictures!
7.PS - I was surprised to learn that most of the monuments have bathrooms that are open at night (til midnight I think) -- so that good to know since its about a 3 hour tour, depending on how quick your group goes --- on cold nights people tend to walk faster.
8. Just book it - we all felt the money was well spent, the van was always warm on our cold night and I learned more than a whole year of American History in high school....plus Eddie is a truly caring person who loves history - he is great at making all ages feel welcome.

You can't go wrong with Eddie's 31 years as a Certified DC Tour Guide. Along with Eddie sharing "All You Ever Wanted to Know about each Stop", he was kind, friendly, flexible, & accommodating. Our Teenage Boys, said "That was better than what I was expecting" :-) Thank you Eddie!!!

Best Part of our Trip!
Dec 2019
My family of 6 booked the evening tour on a chilly night in December. Eddie was extremely knowledgeable about the monuments we visited. He gave tons of information, which made my history-teacher-Mom very happy. Eddie added two stops to include the Capitol Christmas Tree and the National Christmas Tree. He was patient and kind, making sure to include my kids in the conversation. He was a fantastic, safe driver. It was awesome to be able to drive right up to the sights, which would have been difficult to do on one of the bigger tour buses. Eddie even took us back to our hotel at the end of the night, saving us a trip on the Metro! I will recommend his tour to anyone I know who will be visiting the DC area.

Excellent way to see the top monuments
Dec 2019 • Friends
I was on the fence about booking a tour of the monuments since there are so many ways to do it yourself. I am also very selective with tours in general. However, the Washington DC Evening Tour was absolutely worth the price and a highlight of my trip. It really exceeded my expectations. Eddie was a superb tour guide offering a wealth of information. We were able to enjoy and appreciate the monuments much more because we were taken around in a comfortable van (not a large tour bus like cattle), learned a little history of DC and the monuments, and provided time to explore on our own at each stop. Additionally, the monuments are more magical and beautiful when lit up at night.
I highly recommend this tour. The other excellent reviews are spot on.
