The Mount Vernon part is 3 hours and the Alexandria part is 20 minutes. Would have liked to spend more time in Alexandria....there's so much to see there.
We had a delightful time on our trip. The driver/guide was very informative and had suggestions to save us time. He also had our house tour changed to an earlier time so we would not be rushed to catch the bus back.
Such a nice day. Loved our guide, but sometimes I couldn't understand him. If he talked a bit slower maybe. All in all, great fun.
The bus driver was great, and his running narration was very informative and sometimes humorous. Mt. Vernon was nice, and the weather was great.
Mount Vernon was beautiful. I would have liked to spend more time in Alexandria. We were only there a very short time to visit the Christ Church. It seems like a very nice little town to shop and eat.
Great experience enjoyed the history it was a rewarding experience.
Very nice and informative,the bus driver was great. Would have been nice to get out in Old Alexandria and spend a little time downtown. Mount Vernon was excellent.We paid a few dollars more at the guest center to reserve a spot in line for the tour and it was well worth not standing in line for 30-40 minutes. Instead we walked the grounds and were able to see more in that time frame.
I loved visiting Mt.Vernon and would recommend everyone to go there. I didn't think the tour guide was too informative and would definitely recommend.
A tour that was definitely worthwhile. Again, the tour was informative, our driver was very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this one. The air-conditioned bus was very comfortable as the temperature was close to 90 degrees.
Even though the driver was quite knowledgeable, he was a bit overbearing.
Enjoyed it immensely. Would have liked a little more time to explore the visitor center and what it had to offer.
The bus tour through Old Town Alexandria was informative. Leaving from Union Station was an added bonus due to the eating and shopping establishments there. However, the time spent at Mt. Vernon was so short that we didn't have time to go inside the mansion! We could have easily spent double the time, because we missed SO much of the grounds and museum. Visiting in October was a great time of year for that tour.
