Our bus driver/tour guide, Wayne, was amazing! Informative, funny, courteous, helpful, and most of all professional. My sister and I had a wonderful time from start to finish. I would definitely sign up with Viator on my next adventure!

This was a great tour. The whole experience was great. Mount Vernon was nice to see the country side. Arlington National Cemetery was very moving tour. The changing of the guard was a very emotional experience. The whole tour was more than my husband and I expected.

Excellent trip with knowledgeable driver. The museum at Mt. Vernon was interactive and delightful for a 74-year-old grandmother, a 44 year-old daddy and a 10 year-old grandson. We all enjoyed the tour of Mt. Vernon as well as Arlington. We stayed totally engaged the entire time.

We had the best tour guide ever! I would say that it would have been nice to have a little more time at Arlington. We ran out of time and weren't able to see the things we wanted there.

Absolutely fantastic tour with a very funny and knowledgeable driver /guide, Tony.
Mount Vernon was very surreal and beautiful place which had lovely grounds.
Arlington cemetery was also breathtaking and the changing of the guard brilliant. Well worth a visit to cemetery if visiting Washington.

Had a great time on this tour. Our driver was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. Although our time at Arlington Cemetery didn't feel long enough so much to do. Our bus driver said we could stay longer, but would need to take the train back. Many of the passengers did just that, I would highly recommend that too. The best part was visiting Mount Vernon. Make sure to wait in line by the garden to get a tour of the inside of his home, we almost missed it. Also, as you head back to the food court, don't forget to stop by the small museum inside. Unfortunately, we missed it and didn't get to see some of Washington's belongings, including his dentures!

This was a most informative tour. Enjoyed Mount Vernon and could have stayed longer to take in more of the museum.

Mt. Vernon is beautiful and more extensive than I expected. Learned a lot about George Washington that I didn't know.

Not to be missed! From Union Station we left D.C. with a very informative and pleasant guide. The fall colors and the fog rising from the Potomac river made for a beautiful trip to Alexandria and a brief stop at the Christ Church for photo-ops. At Mount Vernon we were turned loose on our own and could create our individual agenda. The Mansion tour was guided, however a map of the estate was easy to follow. The impressive estate designed by a brilliant man and president ,with a vision of the future and the needs of people, is evident all over. A shuttle service is provided between a few places, since a lot of walking is required. Docents, full of information, are all around to answer questions. If you have time, the Mount Vernon Inn serves an excellent lunch.
A short trip to Arlington also provided us with the option to choose our own agenda. A guided shuttle service was provided in between the various memorials. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Changing of the Guards in front of the Memorial Amphitheater are not to be missed as well as The Kennedy Memorial with the eternal flame. Arlington Cemetery is a beautiful Shrine to those who served our Nation with Honor. If you have to visit friends or family resting here, as I did, a private graveside shuttle is provided for you at the Administration Building.
Since I finished the tour at Arlington, I can't comment on any further stops. It was a great tour with a very pleasant and Informative guide.

This tour was great but ran into some touring issues. The Marine marathon was the same day as our tour so we couldn't get into or around Arlington Cemetery. I think that is something the touring company should know ahead of time before allowing tours to get booked. Knowing this we could have had a little. more time to do some of the extras like the distillery tour. We were able to use our tickets and go to Arlington the next day but that cut into our day at Gettysburg. All in all we still had a good day and Tony our guide was great!

This was a wonderful day visiting Mt. Vernon in all of its splendor and learning so much about our first president and his family. The afternoon at Arlington was also special and we were able to see the Changing of the Guard and the Kennedy Graves. The bus was very comfortable and our driver was delightful. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Go early as you need time to find where the tour begins at Union Station.

Excellent trip included not only Mount Vernon but Alexandria and Arlington Cemetary, a very full day. Mount Vernon surprisingly interesting to non US citizen technically the enemy! we had 4 hours and could easily of used more time. Alexandria was all too brief as it is a fascinating glimpse of post colonial Virginia. Arlington and the especially JFK memorial very moving, a great day uh hu

This is an amazing tour. Mount Vernon is a wonderful home and you could spend an entire day exploring the house and grounds. Arlington Cemetery took my breath away and was a really emotional visit. Definitely a tour worth taking and I would recommend it highly. Loved the guides anecdotes plus the freedom of exploring on your own.

A wonderful tour and our bus driver, Tony, was great! My only suggestion would be to allow just a bit more time 20-30 mins? at Arlington Cemetery. Thanks for a fantastic tour!!
