This tour was great. The drive from DC was beautiful and there was plenty of time to see and do everything at Monticello. I had plenty of time to take the Mulberry Row Tour and walk down to Jefferson's grave. The food at Michie Tavern was fantastic also. I would highly recommend this day trip for an awesome day out of Washington DC.
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.
