This was a very nice trip well worth the ticket price. Mount Vernon is a beautiful place to visit. We went on Columbus Day so we were not able see everything of interest during the 3 1/2 hr stay. Staff said non holiday visits are less crowded. The museum is unbelieveable, right down to Washington's dentures. The river is calm with scenic views. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic tour with a very funny and knowledgeable driver /guide, Tony.
Mount Vernon was very surreal and beautiful place which had lovely grounds.
Arlington cemetery was also breathtaking and the changing of the guard brilliant. Well worth a visit to cemetery if visiting Washington.
Our Driver was excellent! Definitely a great trip.
The day cruise down to Mount Vernon was very well done. Just enough info from the crew on what we were passing but still time to carry on a conversation with fellow passengers on the way down and way back to DC. The tour of Mt Vernon itself was good as well. You were given the right amount of time to tour the buildings as well as get a snack if you wanted as well. Got back to the dock in plenty of time for the relaxing sail back to DC. Weather was great for that time of year as well.
To short of a tour. Not enough of time to see everything. This trip should be ONLY to see the Jefferson home and grounds.
Driver was very knowledgeable and nice.
It was great. Especially Mt Vernon.. Could have used more time at Arlington
The driver was funny and informative. We enjoyed the trip
This was a most informative tour. Enjoyed Mount Vernon and could have stayed longer to take in more of the museum.
Very enjoyable day, and the cruise on the river is a great way of seeing something different.

Not to be missed! From Union Station we left D.C. with a very informative and pleasant guide. The fall colors and the fog rising from the Potomac river made for a beautiful trip to Alexandria and a brief stop at the Christ Church for photo-ops. At Mount Vernon we were turned loose on our own and could create our individual agenda. The Mansion tour was guided, however a map of the estate was easy to follow. The impressive estate designed by a brilliant man and president ,with a vision of the future and the needs of people, is evident all over. A shuttle service is provided between a few places, since a lot of walking is required. Docents, full of information, are all around to answer questions. If you have time, the Mount Vernon Inn serves an excellent lunch.
A short trip to Arlington also provided us with the option to choose our own agenda. A guided shuttle service was provided in between the various memorials. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Changing of the Guards in front of the Memorial Amphitheater are not to be missed as well as The Kennedy Memorial with the eternal flame. Arlington Cemetery is a beautiful Shrine to those who served our Nation with Honor. If you have to visit friends or family resting here, as I did, a private graveside shuttle is provided for you at the Administration Building.
Since I finished the tour at Arlington, I can't comment on any further stops. It was a great tour with a very pleasant and Informative guide.
A little wobbly at the start, as the bus and tour guide were late and the group was standing and wondering what was happening. However, once we were on our way the driver and tour guide were both excellent and the tour provided everything we were promised and again, excellent tour guide Nick???. Very happy to have the river cruise included a week after the end of the season for that. Cheers Harry and Jill Freedman
My wife and I loved this tour. It was exciting and sad at the same time to be in the Gettysburg battlefield where thousands of people of the same country killed when fighting for their principles. It was a turning point in the American History and from this day it shaped the core values of our country.
Doing what: Gettysburg Day Trip from Washington DC
Mt. Vernon is beautiful and more extensive than I expected. Learned a lot about George Washington that I didn't know.
Great tour. Tour guide/driver was humorous and knowledgeable.
Absolutely wonderful excursion. Starting with a friendly staff on the river boat cruise to the fantastic home, museum, pioneer farming and exhibitions going on that day. My only negative comment would be that I wish it lasted longer.
Had a great time on this tour. Our driver was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. Although our time at Arlington Cemetery didn't feel long enough so much to do. Our bus driver said we could stay longer, but would need to take the train back. Many of the passengers did just that, I would highly recommend that too. The best part was visiting Mount Vernon. Make sure to wait in line by the garden to get a tour of the inside of his home, we almost missed it. Also, as you head back to the food court, don't forget to stop by the small museum inside. Unfortunately, we missed it and didn't get to see some of Washington's belongings, including his dentures!
