Ed was very knowledgeable on not just historical events, but ones that were not told in the history books. Beautiful walking tour…wear comfortable shoes and bring water! The tour ended up being 3 hours in the DC heat, but learned a great deal

At first I assumed that for $15 the tour couldn't be that good! But don't be fooled....it was a fascinating tour! In our tour, Edward focused on Thomas Jefferson & Alexander Hamilton but in that telling we also heard stories of the most interesting events that transpired on Lafayette Square just north of the White House! I don't know how he manages to remember all these events in such detail and my only regret is that he wasn't having any more tours during our stay! Don't miss Edward if you're in town!

Actually, I was somewhat reluctant to book because the tour was such a good value. Ed didn’t disappoint, it really was a good value. Fun, entertaining, inside info we would never have learned any place else. I highly recommend Ed’s Tour.

Edward provides a highly entertaining and informative tour de force of the White House neighborhood! Our experience focused on the War of 1812, and we learned a lot of history and stories from that seminal moment in DC history.

Excellent tour. Ed has a wealth of historical stories and these often cane with salacious and scandalous details. Loved the upfront and close proxemics where things really happened. Made history come alive! I will read some of his books.
