It was such a great evening tour! Eddie was so knowledgeable & we loved that there were only 4 people on our tour! It gave it a private tour feel. Wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary! Thank you ELD!!!
Pleasant and well narrated tour. Ed was the best! Highly recommend it. Ed even dropped us off at our hotel.
Excellent small group evening tour. Exceptional guide. Ed was very professional and detailed oriented.
Wonderful way to spend an evening! We went to monuments we hadn't planned on seeing this trip which was a huge bonus! Kudos to our guide too. He was the best!
Driver very knowledgeable and friendly. Great way to see the city b
I have been to DC previously. The one thing I wanted to see when I booked the tour was the Jefferson Memorial. We did not see it due to traffic. Honestly I was very disappointed in the tour from that point on. I have seen all the other memorials day and night. I would like to say the guide, Eddie was totally amazing and so knowledgeable. He is an asset to your business.
Our tour guide was AMAZING and went above and beyond to make our experience great!!!!
Great information, very friendly, and accomadating. Allowed enough time at each site and explained many things not mentioned on other tours we took. Pentagon Memorial was a highlight.
Our tour guide, Eddie, was knowledgeable and personable. He remembered everybody’s name after we told him once. Chose safe drop off and pickup points and was always there when he said he would be. His knowledge of the different sights around DC really made for an enriched tour and we really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend the tour to friends, especially with Eddie as the guide!
Eddie was a fantastic guid and was very knowledgeable. He was very good about keeping our tour “PG” Due to us having our 9 and 6 year old with us. I especially enjoyed his heart felt feelings and experiences about September 11th while he guided us through the pentagon memorial, for as being New Yorkers, we had similar feelings and experiences on that day. We got to see monuments and he pointed out all the museums and memorials that we would have never noticed or known about. Overall was an excellent tour and would highly recommended it to anyone that is lucky enough to have a guide as wonderful as Eddie.
We had a wonderful time seeing the historic sites of DC. Eddie is very knowledgeable and shares a Wealth of information. He is super awesome! This tour provides you with almost your own personal tour guide since it is a small group (not more than 6 people) which really makes it very nice. I would highly highly recommend to do the tour.
Excellent tour! Very knowledgeable and loved the personal tour!
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly.
Wonderful tour with Eddy. Informative and personal. So much better than the bus tours. Highly recommend.

We felt like VIP! We saw several tourists waiting to board on or off buses and we had had curb service with ELD. Eddie, was friendly and full of knowledge of DC. I highly recommend ELD; worth every penny!
Eddy was awesome! He had so much information which made it so interesting. My brother left a bag in the van and he was nice enough to bring it back to us. Thank you again, we will pass it on to our friends and family to use ELD Tours when in D.C. area
Best way to experience DC! The private-type tour was educational, informative, fun and worth every penny. Definitely recommend this tour above any others.... 5 STAR rating star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Eddie was super informative and the pace of the tour was perfect!
Best way to see the city! Professional, informative, and perfect timing at the monuments! We loved it! We appreciate the communication! Highlight of our trip to DC!
Eddy was great! My guy and I had a wonderful tour of DC at night. Eddy was extremely informative. We lucked out and it was just the two of us but it would have been nice to have others too! I was moved especially by the Pentagon memorial. Highly recommend this tour.
The tour was fabulous and Eddie was the best tour guide ever! He did a wonderful job of sharing historical details about every site we visited. I've lived in DC for almost three years and hadn't been to the Pentagon 9/11 memorial yet. This place is very special and Eddie really helped us to fully appreciate the significance of every aspect of the design.
Eddie was great!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the D.C. area. He was polite, helpful and wanted to be sure that we were satisfied. Even when we ran into a few roadblocks, Iwo Gima memorial was closed, President was landing in the helicopter so the gates were closed to see the tree, he made sure to figure out the order of things so we did what we wanted to do. The Pentagon Memorial was a very nice bonus and he took the time to explain everything.
I just don't think we could have had a better tour. Informative, timely (stops not too short, not too long),enjoyable and the guide was so very helpful! Highly recommended this night tour to many of our fellow reunion goers. I myself have taken night bus tours and while they are enjoyable, this one is far more convenient and personal. I will be taking one again the next time I visit D.C.

Ed is a wealth of information, funny and is very accommodating. The tour made our anniversary experience in DC extra special. Highly recommended!
The tour guide was great. We had a very diverse group and he was super patient with us all. Would highly recommend.
Eddie was an excellent tour guide. I would highly recommend his service to anyone. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer every question that we asked. He knows the area well and was able to get us from place to place and a timely manner and gave us plenty of time at each Monument. He was especially helpful and understanding the layout and setup of the 9/11 Memorial
We very much enjoyed our night tour with Eddie. His knowledge about the the city and surrounding areas was very impressive. We especially enjoyed the walk through and narrative about the Pentagon monument. The city monuments at night are a sight not to be missed, and certainly recommend Eddie!
The evening tour was one of the best parts of our trip. Eddie was so knowledgeable about everything and never got in a hurry. We will definitely recommend ELD to anyone going to DC.
What a wonderful experience! The tour was very interesting and informative! It was great to see all the monuments at night!
Eddie was a wonderful tour guide. I was on a "Girls' Weekend" with friend who had never been to DC. While I knew she'd learn a lot about the city, I was surprised that I learned new information as well.
Guide was on time, all business and did his best during the 2h tour.
Eddie was an excellent tour guide, full of knowledge, had great stories and kept us all safe in a thunderstorm. He got us back to our rental home which was out of the way for him. Our whole group had a great time.
Tour guide was knowledgeable, kind, and courteous. We saw all the major monuments and had plenty of time for photos. It was the highlight of our trip, and I would highly recommend it!
Eddie was completely knowledgeable, professional yet personable and had impeccable timing and specific location instructions. I would recommend this tour to anyone! My mom and I felt we were in great hands and had an outstanding experience.
I chose very satisfied because Eddie gave us very detailed information on every historic building en route to all of ours stops. As we stopped at some of the monuments he also went with us to give additional information not given on regular tours. As we were on our way back to our apartment he offered us water and dropped us right at our front door.
Myself and my sister-in-law were visiting Washington for the first. We took the Evening Tour and had a fantastic time. Eddie was a marvellous tour guide, very informative and gave us plenty of time to see everything. Would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Washington as one if the most beautiful ways to see the city. Alison
The van was excellent and Eddie was wonderful; very informative and made us feel that he cared about us. I'd recommend his "Moonlight Tour" to everyone and couldn't imagine feeling that comfortable on a big bus tour.
Very professional Evening Tour, provided excellent communication prior to the tour concerning meeting location, public transportation and parking in and around the location. We certainly felt like VIPs with a small group of four and our extremely knowledgeable tour guide. The Pentagon Memorial was a standout doing the tour, with the detail information provided at this Memorial makes it a must-see, and one of the best tours in DC.
What a find !! While visiting DC I was looking for an evening tour. ELD is the way to go ! It was like having a private tour. A comfortable, well air conditioned mini van. The best part was Ed. He was pleasant and knowledgeable. We had plenty of time to get out at some of the memorials. I really can't say enough. I noticed the people on the large tour buses crowded and waiting. Ed met us when we were done at a memorial and whisked us off to the next place of interest. This is the way to go !!
The evening monument tour was outstanding! It was our first evening in D.C.--the tour gave us a great overview of the area. Eddie is an amazing guide. He is personable, an encyclopedia of D. C. facts and he made the whole tour a seamless experience. I don't know why anyone would choose one of the large bus tours when you could have a personalized small-group tour. He even delivered us home! I have no suggestions for improvement--Eddie has obviously put a lot of thought into it. You need to take this tour!!! You won't be disappointed.
Great tour! Good information & stories. Comfortable van. Good audio speakers. Courteous & patient & professional. Love that it includes Marine & Pentagon Memorials. My 2nd time bringing family teenager. Will be back again!
