My Review

We were only in DC for a long weekend and we wanted to see everything possible in a relatively short period of time, so this tour was great for getting the most out of a day. Our driver/guide was knowledgable and entertaining, and since we went in mid February, the crowds were minimal. You have the most time to spend in Mt. Vernon (approx 3 hrs), which worked for us as that was what we were most interested in seeing. It gave us enough time to see all the areas, do a little souvenir shopping and grab lunch. You then drive through Old Alexandria on your way to Arlington. You probably have the least amount of time in Arlington to stroll around, but if you hit all the tram's, you'll be able to see all the key areas (changing of the guard, Arlington house...etc.) and still be back in time. Then off to the National Mall where there is another 1.5 hrs or so to explore the various memorials, which we found to be enough time as well. Overall, the trip was perfect for what we were looking for and is probably the best way to get the most out of 1 day. As mentioned in other reviews, the only part that could have been better is the communication on how to get to the bus terminal to start the tour. We made it as we gave ourselves extra time, but I could see where it may be difficult to find if going there for the first time. Again, great trip overall.
