5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

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.

Normal tour of mansion and then time on your own to explore the rest of the grounds. An overall enjoyable day learning about our first president and his life at Mount Vernon.

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.
