a more restful morning complement to sightseeing in Washington
Great halfdaytour of Old Alexandria and Mt. Vernon. On time and Mike was very knowledgable and had a great demeanor. Self-toured Mt. Vernon and had plenty of time to spend there. My grandson and I were so happy to squeeze in this tour in our whirlwind 3 days in DC!
This was fantastic tour and a must see for any visitors to the Washington DC area. A beautiful mansion with exquisite grounds, guides/workers in period costume, and magnificent views of the Potomac River. Excellent value!
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!
