Not worth the cost - sadly
caroline_b
, Jun 2022
Terribly disorganized and with a lot of unnecessary wait time. We were told to arrive 30 mins early at the pick up place and then stood in a line and waited while three large tour buses were filled. Because the busses take so many people it takes a long time to get on and off and little time to see the actual sights. The guide was good but he seemed frustrated by having to keep such a short time schedule - for the money I would recommend the trolley tour instead -

Really enjoyed FDR and MLK memorials. Also, all the monuments at night were beautiful. Tour guide was knowledgeable but time was given at each spot to check it out on your own. The only disappointment was not getting to stop at the Jefferson memorial.

Incredible waste of time
elizabeth_s

The tour guide was literally the most unprofessional and rude person ever. After taking an amazing tour with ISA tours just a few days later this was an awful experience. She was rude, crude, and used the three hours to discuss her personal opinions of everything she disliked. It was truly an awful experience. She was rude my DHH father in law and the experience was simply ruined. I am sure there are great guides out there but this woman was so obnoxious and rude. I regret taking my children and elderly father in law to deal with someone so unprofessional and rude for three hours.

A tour with real history and depth

Sally and Chris were an amazing team! Sally had a depth of knowledge and historical context that you don’t often see in tour guides — it was an amazing evening. We were very fortunate for a rare cool and non-humid evening just before the summer solstice, clear weather and an amazing sunset. Highly recommend Signature Tours DC — if you get Sally and Chris… you are in for a real special treat!

Unhappy with Guide!

I would highly recommend this tour. We did it our 1st night of 5 in DC and it gave us a great overview and an idea of our game plan for next several days. We have used Viator several times and always found our guides to be knowledgeable and professional, until this time. Our guide, Tyrone may have been knowledgeable, but not professional. He was dressed in a black hoodie with an insignia on back and was on his phone every chance he had. He didn’t walk to monuments with us, so if we had any questions, we had to wait until back on bus, where he appeared unapproachable as he was still on his phone. Chris, our driver was excellent and very professional!
