In the Footsteps of George Washington: Day Cruise to Mount Vernon

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a very scenic, interesting, and pleasant way to get to Mt. Vernon. The pier was very easy to find and a very short walk from the Waterfront Metro Station. The narration was quite interesting and there was a lot more to see along the river than I expected. There were several breaks in the narration so you could enjoy the scenery. Mt. Vernon itself is well worth a visit. You are given a ticket when you disembark that tells you the time of your tour and the system worked very well. We were able to see everything, did not feel rushed, and learned a lot from the docents. A wide variety of food options is available for lunch. There are several outbuildings and gardens to visits depending on one's interest. If I have any criticism - and it is very slight - it is that I wish we had had about half an hour more at Mt. Vernon. Ran out of time to really experience the gardens. As usual, very good value for the money.

My Review

I would highly recommend this service. It was very nice to have a driver waiting after a long flight from Los Angeles. The driver was right where the company said he would be, promptly loaded our bags, and deposited us at the hotel. Very comfortable car, very nice driver, excellent service.

Monticello and Thomas Jefferson Country Day Trip from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a fantastic tour. I didn't realize Monticello is close to three hours from DC so i was glad not to be driving. The bus driver gave us very nice commentary on our way out of the city then showed us an excellent documentary on Jefferson. this filled up the time and prepared us for tour. You get a ticket that tells you what time your tour of the house will be, then you can spend the rest of the time seeing what you want to see. I could have used a little more time there but I don't see how that could happen given how far Monticello is from DC. The visit to the tavern was unexpectedly interesting and the lunch was very good.

This was a very easy and convenient way to get to downtown from Dulles. I've taken the airport bus and then either the Metro or a taxi. This is better by far and very cost effective.

After three weeks of traveling it was really nice not to have to hassle with transportation to the airport. The driver was pleasant, figured out an alternate route when we hit traffic, and got us to Heathrow in plenty of time.

Barcelona Hop-on Hop Off Tour: East to West Route

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great way to get an overview of Barcelona especially if you have only one day. We used it to get to the Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, then stayed on the bus for the rest of the circuit. We thus got to see all over Barcelona while learning about the various neighborhoods and a bit of history. We intended to go on the other route to go out to Camp Nou but were just too tired. If you have more than one day it would certainly be an easy way to get to all sorts of destinations. If you have limited time and are just interested in one or two attractions, it might be cheaper to take taxis or the metro, but if you want to see the city and learn about it, this is a good way to go.
