The instructions to find the meeting place were confusing and we had to ask for help to find the place. Once the bus arrived and we got aboard, it was wonderful. The driver was the tour guide ---Charlie Smith--he gave a constant interesting and often humorous summary of the sights we passed by, including an extensive tour of old town Alexandria, prior to arriving at Mount Vernon. On the way back, the stories continued. All in all, the driver was outstanding. The tour was one I would recommend.

Enjoyed our tour and Charles Smith was a very talented tour guide. He made the trip entertaining and provided a wealth of information along the entire trip. Make sure you stay at Mt Vernon as long as you can as there is a lot to see. Good value vs doing this on your own.

Also, just go to the bus location on the opposite side of the street from the Post Office and don't waste your time going to the tour office in the food court.

Darnell was our guide on our trip to Mount Vernon and did a wonderful job of telling us all about the sights on our way to Mount Vernon including our van tour of Alexandria and a lot of history along the way. Very impressed with this tour.

The bus driver Sarge Thomas made the trip enjoyable with knowledgeable, funny history. He really shined on the trip to and through Old Town. This Tour was run by DC Trails-Viator sells the tour. The Mansion tour and the grounds tour on your own were great! A beautiful property rich in American history. Heard the museum was interesting and informative but did not have the time to see. Perhaps the only critique would be another hour at Mount Vernon would have been easily and enjoyably used!

This was a very informative tour and our guide was very professional and knowledgeable. Especially liked the fact that we stopped at Christ Church on way to Mt. Vernon.

It was a great tour. Charles Smith was our guide. He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. It takes about 5 hours. I would recommend this tour. There is an office at the LEfant Plaza. They were very helpful in getting us to our tour bus.

Charlie S. was great. He was well informed and filled with interesting historical information and stories.
He was engaging and friendly - really made an effort to be certain everyone on the tour had a good day!
I would definitely use viator again.
The only difficulty we had was finding the pick up location in the morning. Using the postal building across the street as the address to find would make the locating the pick up much easier.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Excellent Tour of Old Town Alexandria and Mount Vernon. Plenty of time. Charles the tour guide/driver was very accommodating.
