Great Experience!
, Feb 2020
We booked the tour the same day and it was great! Cassie the guide was wonderful. She was engaging, knowledgeable and well-spoken. Cassie was able to relate to all ages including our children ages 14 and 11 and kept them interested. The only hiccup was in the beginning as there was a new driver and when we got on the bus to find out if it was our tour he was not sure that Viator and Signature Tours (name on the bus) were one and the same. It was quickly rectified and the staff apologized for the confusion. We got great photos and learned a lot! Fun was had by all! Thanks for a fabulous night!

Fantastic night time tour
, Feb 2020
We had a lovely time on this tour. There were only 4 of us but it worked great on a very rainy evening. The tour guide was great. She had a plethora of stories about the sights and was very enthusiastic about history and the city. She graciously took pictures for us at every stop. Really excellent guide. The tour itself was great. We saw all the main sights at night and had ample time for photos at the Capitol, White House, Lincoln memorial, Vietnam memorial, WW II memorial, MLK memorial, Korean memorial. The tour lasted a little over 3 hours and was a great value for the price. I highly recommend this tour for a great evening of sight seeing.
The monuments are amazing at night!

This evening tour was great. I was tired and conflicted about trying to cram in some sights at night, but I am so glad that I did. The tour guide was so sweet and informative. You can tell she loves history and sharing it. 🥰

Better than expected! We went with our 2 teenagers and we all enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide Sally, was very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of every memorial and sites we visited. Our favorite was the MLK memorial. Sally's great sense of history and eloquence brought History to life. I was literally moved to tears when she spoke about the significance of the civil rights movement and how MLK'S vision and leadership opened new doors of opportunities not just for African Americans but also for so many minority groups in our this great land of opportunities. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and families. Keep up the good work Sally!!!
