We booked a private tour and it was well worth it. Our guide Gail K. was fabulous and we got to see some of the behind the scenes stuff. Also, we got to ride around the property on a golf cart which was good for us due to arthritis. It was a great place to visit on a beautiful day and there were not a lot of tourists. I definitely recommend this tour!
Our VIP Tour Guide, John Marshall, was simply the best and I'll be recommending him............
John did a great job. The whole family really enjoyed the experience. John also took great pictures and engaged the whole family. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Old Alexandria and the trip down was easy and enjoyable as well. John was witty and made the tour memorable.
Our tour was fantastic and our tour guide, Karen was great. We all really enjoyed seeing areas of the house that other people were unable to see. Holding the wreath for the Washington's at their tomb was so special. Well worth the cost!
This was amazing. Well worth every penny. Cant say enough about our guide. She was a true historian! You could tell she loved her job. She was more than amazing!!!!!
This tour was really well done. Our guide was knowledgable and informative, and she was willing to adjust our time to focus on our main interests, which were the gardens and the highlights of the house. We got to go all the way upstairs in the house, which is closed to regular visitors, and we got to lay a wreath right on George Washington's tomb! Mount Vernon is definitely a must see, although you will need to be prepared for lots of school children, especially inside the house. The private guide helps you to navigate this crowd and expands on the commentary by the regular guides inside the house. This was definitely a highlight of our wonderful weekend in DC.
This was the best private tour ever! John Marshall was our guide and he was intelligent and you could see that he loved his job. When we use Viator again for DC, we would love to have John.
The guided tour by Marie was the highlight of the trip to DC. The tour was interesting, informative and paced well for the content and the temperature/terrain. Another plus was the ability to secure expedited access to the mansion. The tour sparked our interest in the Washington Family and in colonial American History. I wish we had 2 days -we could have easily filled 2 days. We missed the Grist Mill and Museum.
Our tour was wonderful.Viator did a horrible job with the booking and when I got to Mt. Vernon they had no record of the reservation. They have been having problems with the Viator booking co. The Mt. Vernon staff made it right. I will never book with Viator again!
