Our tour guide Duane was very knowledgable and passionate about the history of our wonderful Monuments. My husband and I highly recommend taking The Morning Monuments Tour. It was worth every penny!

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2017

The Tour was fine but the organisation from Viator was appalling. No-one picked us up from the hotel at the pre-arranged time, the number given by Viator was an answer phone, and when we eventually got through to the correct tour company, they hadn't got our reservation. However, they let us on the tour although we missed the first 15 minutes. I would recommend a local company booked through your hotel when you arrive in Washington.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2016

My hotel pick up did not show up. After one email and five phone calls all from my end no one ever got back to me. I was eventually told that viator did not communicate my information with signature tours. Very disappointing.
