I liked the bus tour itself, I didnt care for the tour guide, he wasnt kind and very pushy. He often didnt walk with us and tell us about the sites. He sort of told us and pointed and he was supposed to be the boss. The driver was good and super nice. They did hand out free cold water, which was nice. We used their night tour the day before and loved April! Even my son said he doesnt know much like April, ask for April, she is fantastic. I Do not normally tip on a tour but I tippped her well the night before. I didnt tip him, I didnt feel he put effort in.

I would recommend this tour. Tour was worth it's money. We could not have ask for a better tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. Also have to give the driver his props, he was very good driver. Now getting to the tour, great tour, we cover a lot of the sights in what was suppose to be a 6 hr tour, but end up being more like a 7 hr tour. No complaints.
Just make sure you have good walking shoes, you're going to need them.

Our guided DC Bus Tour was exactly what I expected. The guide was very informative, patient, and cordial. The tour filled in some of the gaps of my knowledge.

Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.

This was a wonderful tour. Our driver and guide worked so well together to provide a wonderful experience. We experienced so much in such a relatively short time, their knowledge of the city was amazing. This tour is ideal if you only have a few days in the city. We would highly recommend this tour.

Amazing tour. A driver picked me up from my hotel right on-time at 9:30 am. There was a motorcade on that day so we missed out the White House but the tour guide Dwayne was very friendly and professional. He was able to bring us around to all the other monuments and explained all their historical details with great knowledge and interest throughout the day. Overall, it was a well-organized tour ended with an-hour cruise along the Potomac River. The weather was perfect as a nice sunny and clear Labor Day Sunday which made it even more memorable. When my trip ended and I was already back home, I remembered Dwayne took our group photo in front of the Jefferson Memorial. I found it on the Signature Tour Company Facebook and I was already looking forward to my next vacation. I'll recommend this tour to anyone and I'll definitely look up for other tour destinations with Signature again on my next trip to D.C.!!

Tour was very good. Liam, our guide was very knowledgeable about the sites. Still could have been a bit more informative. It's probably just me, but I want a ton of info on a tour, EVERY building, street has a story, I wanted to hear it. Boat ride was 35min. Beautiful on the water, but meh.
