      Capitol Hill walking tour
      If I could give this company Viator and signature Tours of DC a zero I would. This is the worst tour ever and avoid it at all cost. Disappointed, disorganized and they operate from the Philippines. They charged me for a tour that never happened. Horrible experience.

      James and Kris were both great! Made it so easy to get around and see so much more than we could have on our own. James is very knowledgeable and also gave us lots of helpful hints.

      SPECTACULAR
      We had the best tour guides, Kris and James. Both are very professional with vast knowledge of history, very friendly, and welcoming. Mr. James is very funny, he made us feel like we were long time friends. The monuments looks spectacular on the night

      Great family experience
      Our tour guide was the best. We drove in from out of town and did not know what to expect. Parking was not an issue as we were led to believe. We were were not advised well about parking opportunities in public decks. I would add that to the information on TripAdvisor.

      Great way to see many monuments with a fantastic tour guide, James and bus driver Kris. My kids are 8 and 10 and they didn’t get bored or tired.

      Great first day in DC
      This was the perfect first day of our visit to DC. Tyrone & the driver, Chris, were great. We were able to get an overview & stop at some of the top places. We did not feel rushed. The lunch stop at National Harbor & the boat trip on the Potomac River topped off the trip. I would recommend this tour to all to get an overview of the sites.

      Great tour of sites
      Mostly enjoyed the tour with the driver and guide doing their jobs very well but was disappointed because it wasn’t clear the we would not enter any of the Smithsonian cites. Lunch was planned very late for our needs, but thank you to Tyrone and Chris for a good experience.

      Great, fast paced tour
      Kris (driver) and James (tour guide) were both great! Kris knew what areas of town to avoid as it was Memorial day and lots of streets were closed & very busy; James is a pervious history professor so he was a wealth of knowledge and very funny! You will see a learn a lot on this tour! Don't expect to remember it all lol. It's great not to have to think about driving, parking, or traffic and just relax and listen to the guides. You'll learn things from the locals you wouldn't learn if you just go on your own.

      This tour was perfect from start to finish and well worth the money.
      We were well informed via several confirmation emails on where to meet and how long the tour would last. Of course I got confused as to the exact meeting place...imagine my surprise when a live human answered their information phone and politely directed me to the meeting site . ( I was just on the wrong side of the street) Our guide, Dwayne was fantastic . Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He guided us to the Capitol Building and conducted the first part of the tour and made sure I was allowed to use the elevator instead of stairs when necessary. He then turned us over to Jackson for the rest of the Capitol Building tour. Again, a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Dwayne then walked w/us thru the underground tunnel from the Capitol Building to the Library of Congress at a doable pace and entertained us along the way w/more fun facts. Dwayne walked us thru the Library of Congress building and explained what we were looking at. We had plenty of opportunity to take pictures and ask questions throughout the entire tour. A huge heartfelt thankyou to Dwayne and Jackson. Jewell Halwachs Monterey, California

      Best tour in DC
      Chris, our driver, and Dave, our guide were awesome! It was a full day of visiting the sights, Dave was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Our group was about 20, so it moved along well. The river tour at the end capped a very good day. We couldn't have seen and learned as much on our own. A must do when in DC!

      Highlight of our trip
      We weren’t sure what to expect but this ended up being our favorite part of our trip to DC. The buildings are amazing. Truly incredible to see, Dwayne, our tour guide also amazed us with his knowledge. He knew the answers to all of our questions, I have known some people who were quite knowledgeable on American history, but I have never met another person like him, I highly recommend this tour, especially if it is with Dwayne.

    I took the Full Day tour; Arlington National Cemetary Walking, Bus/Walk Monuments and Memorials and the Potomac River.
    The Arlington Nation Cemetary was GREAT a 10 for sure.
    Bus/Walking was rushed, needed more time walking around each site. But still above average experience.
    Lunch at Georgetown was at your own expense which was OK but not very user friendly for selection of restaurant you wanted to dine at.
    Potomac Boat was a TOTAL WASTE of time!!! 45 minutes and they pointed out objects in the distance that we had already seen.
    Drop the boat and give more time to bus/walking.
    Use the food trucks for lunch. I think it would have added to the DC visit atmosphere.
    If I was doing it again, I would do the Arlington National Cemetary with guide as stand alone and then a bus/walking tour of monuments/memorials separately.

    We highly recommend Signature Tours walking tour of Arlington Cemetery! Our guide, James, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic to inform us about the significant aspects of this important site. His years of experience made a difference from other tour guides on site. The walking is not for someone who has difficulty being on their feet for 2 hours or walking at a good pace. For those who can, this tour is not to be missed!

    The tour provided a comprehensive and enjoyable experience of major historical monuments around Washington. Our tour guide, Tyrone, was knowledgeable of the topics and contributed to a fun experience. The Arlington cemetery walk, including the precision changing of the guard, and the FDR monument were highlights for me.

    This was a great way to see the highlights of DC on a quick weekend trip. With a kiddo in tow, it would have been difficult to manage and do on our own. Vernon was witty and obviously very knowledgeable about the city. He was conversational with my 6 year old and that just made his day. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who is limited on time.

    We really enjoyed the tour and definitely feel we made a great choice. It was a busy day, but we got to see a lot in the eight hours of the tour. We really liked our tour guide, Tyrone he was very informative and also very friendly with everyone. He paid special attention to the you get kids and involved them throughout the tour. He even went out of his way and helped a female who needed assistance with her wheelchair. Thank you for a great tour.

    We had the best tour guide for this walk in the Arlington Cementary. James was on time, friendly, welcoming and very funny.
    Although is a long walk, 2 hs, time goes fast because he shared a lot of history in a very entertaining way.

    Great tour. Went to the places we didn’t want to go to on our own. Tour guided was very friendly. I must say on this tour at the memorials definitely get a lot of airplane noise beings so close to airport. At times very hard to hear guide. Arlington Cemetery was a pleasant surprise and really enjoyed. I would have liked in the end a little shorter tour. 8 hours was pretty long. Ending the tour with a great lunch then the Potomac River boat ride was a perfect and relaxing ending.
