Great tour. Everyone at Grayline was helpful and pleasant. We had plenty of time to tour the various museum exhibits, but at a busier time of year you may need more time. The house was very interesting and the tour guides at various points around the property were so wonderfully passionate and clearly felt honoured to be there. I even ended up reading Washington's prayer at a daily memorial service at his tomb which was an honour, even as a Brit. He was clearly a great man.
extremely good. very well organised.knowledgable tour guide, then left to do your own thing once you get to mount vernon. beautiful estate, and seeing where George Washington was buried was a fantastic historical perspective
Really enjoyable and informative. Mount Vernon offers
good facilities and something for the whole family to enjoy.
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.
