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 a great tour of the home of George Washington. Highly recommend it for families with older kids 8 years old or older.

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.
