Beautiful memories made

It was so amazing. It was my husband, 13 & 16 year old grandkids & myself. This trip was fabulous & we were BLESSED to have Cassie as our tour guide. Her knowledge of our American History is 2nd to none!! She’s so fun & energetic & I will go another of her tours this fall when we return. We were also blessed to have Chris as our driver. He’s such a kind man. Always kind and greeted us every time. He got us everywhere & up close which was very nice & convenient!!! The boat ride on the Potomac was very refreshing after enjoying lunchtime- if you’re hesitant - I was - don’t be - this trip is so worth it & after booking we received a 10% discount for another tour 😊 happy all the way around - I’m so blessed to have this beautiful day of memories with these 2 grandkids & my husband ❤️

Maps and Kris saved the day
Kathleen

The tour was very good, but we did not get the boat ride, because someone forgot to reserve the boat for us! What saved this tours rating was Mr. Maps. His knowledge of the city of Washington and its buildings was very impressive, and his personality put his guests in an excellent mood. He was also very caring; my friend and I are disabled and have difficulty walking, but Maps did his best to limit the distance for us, and we were able to really enjoy the tour. The other shining star of the day was Kris, our driver. He manuvered around the busy streets of Washington like a pro, and he also helped the disabled by getting us as close as possible . I would highly recommend ANY Signature tour that Kris and Maps.are on.

Details regarding pick up location we’re incorrect. We arrive 45 minutes early and called the Local contact. She was unaware of the tour date and time. It took her awhile to figure it out. Bad experience.

A MUST at the start of your visit to DC

We weren't sure how this tour would work, since it has so many stops and it was perfect! Our tour guide was SO knowledgeable about both the history, the city, our country and so much fun, i can't imagine how much we would have missed and left without knowing. Great pace. This is a great starting spot to see what landmarks you want to come back to with more time, so i would suggest doing this as soon as you get into the city. We based where we were wanting to spend more time at on this tour- great plan maker! I will be back in the fall and plan on taking the tour again. thanks for the bonus ticket to go inside the Washington Monument!! What a cherry on top of this delightful cake!
