Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

When you need a break from city sightseeing, escape to serene and lovely Mt Vernon on this tour. I suggest choosing a cooler day if you can, as there's a good bit to see outdoors.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Really interesting. We booked because we prefer to go by ourselves and the tour is really well organized and allows everyone to go at its own step without losing anithing

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Mount Vernon was very good (even in the pouring rain). Very interesting. We did not stop in Old Town Alexandria because it was a Sunday and the church we were suppose to see is not open to the public on Sundays.
