Tour/Activity

Arlington National Cemetery and War Memorials Tour

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour did not include all of the places listed, not even all the places that we were supposed to stop at. We did not go to the US Navy Memorial, Marine Corps Memorial (Iwo Jima), Air Force Memorial, or Pentagon Memorial. We didn't even see these from the bus/van. We were given only 30 minutes to get lunch, see the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial and Korean War Memorial (all at one stop). It looked like the tour operator combined our group with someone else on a 4 hour tour, so we ended up stopping at other places on their tour list, but not on ours. Also, we had to drive back into town to drop that person off. So for someone trying to get all the mentioned and promised memorials in, this tour did not meet that. The tour guide did accompany us and guided us through Arlington National Cemetery and got us to the changing of the guard at just the right time.

Tour/Activity

Mt Vernon and Old Town Alexandria Day Trip from Washington DC

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Tour did not include what was described. Our tour guide did give us a little history of DC, but not the information on Alexandria as described, I don't think he mentioned any of the places described on tour description. He just dropped us off at Mount Vernon and picked us up later. The description of tour says the tour guide would guide us through Mount Vernon. Fortunately, Mount Vernon does have guides stationed throughout to give you information. The tour van had broken seat belts that didn't work, and the driver was aware of this. Tour guide/driver just said, " It will be okay, you'll be safe." I didn't really feel comfortable with that answer (especially since it was raining that day). Tour guide was very pleasant, however.
