The bus was 20-30 minutes late to pick us up. He was sent some place else first. That cut our time short at Mt. Vernon.
The advertising about the pentagon, crystal city and Washington's church were misleading. We did not stop at the first 2 and the church was not open to go inside. I was disappointed in that part.
The bus driver was fun and told good stories.

Well, the ride out to Mount Vernon via Alexandria was great with wonderful dialog by our driver. She was very knowledgable and pointed out so many interesting facts. Unfortunately, when it came time to leave Mount Vernon, the bus air conditioning was broken on a day with record seting heat (Heat Index of 110 degrees!). The 1/2 day tour people, including myself, had to ride back to DC in this hot bus while the full day tour folks were put on an air conditioned bus. I understand that these things happen, but to add insult to injury, the driver on the ride back did not say one word, did not point out one landmark, did not provide single historic fact -- nothing! On top of that, as we were all sweltering in the bus, he didn't even drive the speed limit, prolonging our hot sweaty agony. I was never so glad to get off a bus in my life!

Very enjoyable. I learned a lot from the driver and noticed things I would never have noticed. Not really enjoy time at Mount Vernon - especially if you want to see a few of the videos. I loved Alexandria, and would have liked a little more time there.

Very interesting tour with great driver/guide. My only disappointment was the the African American special tour was scheduled after our bus left Mr. Vernon.

Mt. Vernon was wonderful. Alexandria was too shrot, too fast.
