Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This was a great tour. Despite the early start - it would have been helpful if we could have been picked up in our hotel rather than having to make our own way to Union station - it was good to get perspective beyond the city and to spend time at the beautiful and historical Mount Vernon. We would have liked more time there and at Arlington; personally, we would have been happy to miss out the stop at the war memorials which we had already spe3nt time at separately; the drive through Old Alexandria wass about right. Our guide, Tony was great - very knowledgeable, helpful and above all a great guy.
