The tour guide was great, but could have used a microphone as the people in the rear seat had difficulty hearing. I was a little disappointed with the tour of the house. I expected more. The museum was great but we needed more time. We did not get to view all the movies. Overall a great day.
Great personal service. Very comfortable transport. Good commentary
Great trip went very quickly could have spent more time exploring local areas,
tour guide was difficult to understand. It sounded like he was reciting a prepared script that had been memorized. He did however let us off at a different spot upon our return to DC because the pickup spot was not convenient for me and the other riders in the van.
Tour guide/bus driver was pleasant, but difficult to understand. Tour of Old Town Alexandria was brief and mainly a drive through. Perhaps misread the tour description, but it was not a guided tour of Mount Vernon as we thought. We were on our own to tour Mount Vernon along with all other guests. Basically was a bus ride to Mount Vernon, and then we were on our own.
This was a great value for a trip to Mount Vernon to tour the mansion and grounds as well as the tour at Arlington National Cemetary. Our bus driver Tom did a great job of telling us about some of the historical places on the way and was a real gentleman. It was convenient catching the bus at Union Station and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to DC.
The trip was wonderful. We truly enjoyed the bus driver who provided us with a great deal of information
My daughter and I had a fantastic time at Mt. Vernon our driver was very helpful and kind.
Great trip and worth going to see everything. I would have loved to have had more time at Arlington National Cemetery. The bus driver, Wayne, was fabulous.
Our tour guide Joe was knowledgable and friendly. This tour was worth the time and money.
If you what easy transport to mount vernon this is great but if you want a guided tour ad you drive this isn't the one. The driver wasn't very helpful or informative or friendly but he got us there safe and on time. Mount vernon itself was fantastic.
Mount Vernon by itself was very nice, and a well run attraction. I wish we have more time there - I could see spending the entire day and just barely experiencing everything. The ride itself was cramped and uncomfortable in a van that looked like it was about to break down. It was also unmarked and sketchy. I would try a different tour company if I was doing it again.
Joe was nice but, didn't know it would be in a small van and hard to hear sometimes, the Christ Church was being used for church so we couldn't go in for a tour and some of the stops could've been longer.
The tour description claimed to provide a guided tour through the mansion, gardens, farms and other buildings that show what colonial life was like on the grand estate - guided with a Licensed Tour Guide. And it claimed to include colonial-era actors at work in a blacksmith shop and on a colonial farm. But, we were dropped off, given tickets and sent on our way to stand in line with everyone else only to listen to brief facts given by employees standing in certain rooms as we passed through the mansion. And, we read signs when available. Tour description said we'd ride on a comfortable bus, but there were 11 of us crammed in a van. We basically paid for transportation and tickets to go through the estate. We stopped at Christ Church and were told we'd get a tour of the church, but they were having a service. We sat in the back pew for a short while, interrupting people at the service ... very awkward. Mt. Vernon is a wonderful estate and we were very disappointed not to learn more with a licensed guided tour. The tour description is not accurate and very deceiving. Yvonne, Dallas
Tour guide gave no information on where we were or where we would be going. The time alloted for visiting miunt vernon was not enough
BUYER BEWARE! Tour is NOT as advertised. Tour is provided by a third party vendor and the tour has changed. This is an over priced taxi service to Mount Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery. Pick up and drop off to both locations only-there is NO tour of any memorials. Not worth 90 per person.
Only stopped off at Mt Vernon, Christ church and Arlington. I spent a great deal of research trying to find the best value tour, I could have seen more had I gone by foot. Did not have enough time to see any other sights as we spent far too long at Mt Vernon 4.5 hours. We didn't even pass the White House! Had to go by taxi to go and look at Lincoln memorial, Vietnam memorial and the Whitehouse..I submitted a complaint to Viator nearly 2 weeks ago and still have not been contacted. Very unsatisfied customer.
We had a great time on this tour. It was a great way to see Mt. Vernon. The boat trip was very scenic and you were handed a timed ticket to tour the house as soon as you exited the boat. The time on the ticket allowed you to tour the house first and then have plenty of time to tour the grounds and the museum. I have been to Mt. Vernon several times in the past and this is the best way to see it. It is a great value also, since you get the boat ride and the tour. I'm so glad that we decided to include this in our Washington DC itinerary.
I was absolutely amazed at Mt. Vernon and Arlington cemetery. Seeing the changing of the guard is a must.
Our tour guide, Joe, was fantastic. He challenged my teen son with trivia questions on American history related to George Washington and produced a family contest while driving to Mt. Vernon. When a school field trip arrived ahead of us, Joe adjusted the tour appropriately. We loved this opportunity Joe afforded us. We would go on another tour with Joe in the Washington, DC area.
It was a wonderful tour, everything worked smoothly and I learned so much from my driver, Paul!
The tour was great. Our Guide was knowledgeable, the weather was great and we had a good time.
I was hoping for more information to be provided on the tour. I also did not see the point in going to the Masonic temple but not going inside. I did enjoy seeing Mt Vernon and the chapel.
