This was an excellent tour. Easy to find the travel office in Union Station and the tour was great. Well worth going on this tour and the driver was interesting.
Fabulous day, tour guide on coach very good and informative
We enjoyed or day visiting Mt Vernon and the Arlington Cemetery. Mt Vernon was excellent. We arrived early and had a lot of the sites to ourselves, however it was in October so that was in their off peak season.
The visit to the cemetery was good but needed more time there. We had to cut our visit short so the bus could go back to the Union Station to drop off the half day people and pick up some further patrons.
What should have happened is that the bus takes the half day people back the the Station and then pick up the full day people on it's return from picking up further people from Union Station.
That would have enabled us to have more time at the cemetery.
Having said that, what we saw was excellent but we had to go back to see other graves such as Audie Murphy.
I would certainly recommend this trip but the company does need to give its patron more time at the cemetery.
Wonderful as well as informational!
The tour was great! We loved Mount Vernon and even though we were there until noon, we could have stayed longer. Also, we visited Arlington Cemetery and got to see the changing of the guards, which was very moving. This was really a great tour!
The directions through Union Station to the check in site were great. We checked in easily and then got on the bus. Our driver, David Cooper was filled with great information, and entertained us with his silly jokes. HIs multi tasking of talking and driving through the busy roads in and around Washington DC was amazing. His instructions for our stops were very clear and understandable. This was a fun, stress free way to see Mount Vernon, Arlington Cemetery and some of the monuments. This was our second Viator guided tour. We had done the all inclusive VIP tour of DC the day before. The goal was to show our son as much of Washington DC's patriotic sites as we could in the limited time we had. He is 20 and also had a wonderful time on the tours. I would highly recommend Viator if you are wanting to see Washington DC.
Our driver, David Cooper was outstanding. Great tour and just the right amount of time to see everything.
Such a good and informative tour! Loved our bus driver
Enjoyed the tour - our bus driver went out of his way to make this tour informative and enjoyable.
The cruise was relaxing after days of walking around Wash. DC. Once you land at Mt Vernon, take the
free shuttle up to the attractions. There are many "out" building to see besides the estate house. The
day we went, there was a reenactment of rev. soldiers and a period market that was cool. The visitor
center had a lot to see and do as well. I really enjoyed the tour. I would have liked to go through the house
twice to catch what I missed the first time.
The Driver was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the area.
What a neat experience. It was fun walking the grounds and home that belonged to George Washington. The Arlington tour was a somber experience but I am so glad I went.
It was really nice, beautiful weather, nice and relaxing cruise. Everyone was so nice and full of information. Would highly recommend it. I learned so much. Definitely worth the price.
I learned so much about Washington- My husband was chosen to read his prayer st the wreath laying- Mt Vernon was so impressive
