The bus tour was excellent. The tour guide, Sheryl was very friendly and knowledgeable. She provided very interesting details about the area. The tour was hassle free and well worth the fee.
Great trip, bus driver Sharon was fantastic. Learned so much on the way to Mt Vernon and saw sights and heard stories we never would have had the chance to see and hear if not for the trip and her. Definitely recommend this half day trip.
We really enjoyed the trip. The bus driver was educational and entertaining. He got us there on time and we had plenty of time to enjoy Mt. Vernon, which we loved.
We really enjoyed this! Our bus driver/guide was great too, he kept us entertained. One downfall was that we were unable to stop and see Christ Church, something was going on there.
You really need to see Mount Vernon while you are visiting DC. Both the house and surrounding property give you a feel for what it was like to live like George Washington did. It's a nice relaxing change to leave the city and visit some parts of Virginia. Driving by Old Town Alexandria and visiting Christ Church was also a great addition to touring Mount Vernon! I would recommend this tour with Viator!
The bus driver (Cheryl) was not only an excellent driver, very knowledgeable on George Washington and the entire area around old town Alexandria, and was very entertaining. The tour was well worth the affordable price and was very enlightening and enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to see Mount Vernon or Alexandria.
enjoyed it so much, the coach driver was great, thank you so much, for all the information she gave as a visitor to the us
It was a great tour with an excellent driver who provided us with interesting information about the area of Old Alexandria and at Mount Vernon -
Didn't know much about this but it was just so informative, particularly if you are an American history buff or just want to see history in the 'raw' - Mt Vernon is the genuinely restored home of George Washington and Alexandria a wonderful and historic town. The guide was very articulate and a wealth of truly interesting historical information.
Amazing place to visit - definitely recommend!! We had about 3 hours at Mt Vernon which was just enough time for the mansion tour, the tomb, the wharf and to see the museum!!
