This tour is awesome. I would recommend this tour to anyone. It was worth every dollar we spent. We had a great time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Our tour guide/bus driver was so good and had the best personality. Nice air conditioned buses. I could have used one less hour of Mt. Vernon and 1 more hour of Arlington. I felt like we rushed through it a bit.

The trip was very good. It was a very convenient way to see both Mount Vernon and Arlington Cemetary. The Bus Driver did a very good job and was very informative. The only criticism we have is the information on where to check in at Union Station and where to meet the bus could be more detailed as we had a difficult time finding where to check in and meet the bus as it is a large facility handling all forms of transportation not only Bus Tours.
