Perfect time of year for our visit to DC. Crowds are minimal and weather was perfect. Be sure to leave extra time if you are driving for traffic in DC and parking at Mount Vernon site. We specially enjoyed the inside home tour with costumed docents. there is significant waking to see most of the plantation...wear comfortable shoes and lite jackets , if windy.
Nice to freely roam the property. The house tour was well done with access to individuals throughout the house to answer questions and give commentary. There is so much to see both indoors museum/tour center and around the massive grounds - can't take it in in one visit.
We really enjoyed our tour of Mt. Vernon, VA. The grounds around the mansion are more extensive than I thought. The Museum and Education Center was very interesting. I would love to return and learn more about George Washington's life and political influences. We didn't have time to visit the distillery and gristmill. It would be interesting to take special tours around the mansion and the farms. Very glad we had several hours to spend there.
This was our first use of Viator and it certainly did save us a few dollars for a family of 5. At the time of our visit was one of the hotter days of the summer. The garden area was nice and shaded. Do take the time to talk with the reenactors on the grounds. Mt Vernon was under scaffolding while there but still enjoyed the tour and the grounds. Be prepared for lots of walking if you want to do everything.
Great trip - although it had been 15 degrees cooler. We plan to go back and take some of the other tours offered possibly the cruise. The only thing I wish is that each of the tour guides would have expanded their talk to another minute or two. I did feel like we were rushed through the mansion just a tad.
