ample time for a thorough visit , my tour went out even tho I was the only one booked ..... The driver Paul was most helpful and attentive .
Loved this tour! It was amazing to see the grounds Washington once passed through. I wish we would have left more time for the museum as we only had about 45 min or so before we had to leave. We easily could have spend two hours there. Great tour and I would highly recommend :
I learned so much new information about George Washington and his family. I loved being able to explore his estate I will certainly go again.
This was a great tour. It was just long enough to see everything and not too long where your bored. Mt Vernon was really neat to see. Lots of sights and history. I really like stopping at the church where George Washington went and see how it hadn’t changed much from his time. Would recommend
Great tour. In Alexandria, the tour of Christ Church really brings the colonial days to life. The drive to Mt. Vernon is chalk full of history. At Mt. Vernon, you walk around on your own, getting the freedom to explore all of the plantation. This is a must do DC tour when you are there.
This road trip was educational and enjoyable.
We were rushed somewhat in our stay at Mt. Vernon in that the driver was trying to stick to a 3 p.m. return to DC time schedule. But overall we are very happy with the Mt. Vernon and Alexandria road trip.
We highly recommend it to others seeking to see historic sites in the DC area.
I love Mt. Vernon. It is a gorgeous setting. It is also a peek into the daily life of the well-off back in the day. Very informative. The grounds are beautiful to walk and take in. Our driver, Paul, took great care of us and made sure we didn't miss a thing. Very knowledgeable. Great experience.
Well worth going. Mt Vernon is beautiful and functioning as a period far, lovely to see, loved the day.
The trip was amazing. Our driver was very helpful and very knowledgeable. We learned alot and had a wonderful afternoon.
I am enjoying this trip so much. Our guide came on time and he was very informative and fun. The only thing that I wasn't expected is that I thought that we will be strolling around Alexandria, not only passing by. Mount Vernon is very beautiful and I enjoy the museum so much.
Great trip, great guide. Very worthwhile, Mt. Vernon and Old Alexandria were both a very good take.
Lovely place to visit and interesting to see the house and tomb of the Washingtons
Our tour guide, Bobby, was very entertaining. We enjoyed Mt Vernon and seeing Old Town Alexandria. Bobby kept us entertained during the trip from D.C. To Mt. Vernon. He made sure we knew exactly what to do and see while at Mt Vernon
