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.
A beautiful, historic place. But more should be articulated there about the fact that it was built and operated on the backs of enslaved Africans. The US is still not coming to terms with its criminal past of slavery in the South.
I loved every moment of my tour. So amazing! There is one thing that might help and that is to better explain the tour on where you start and better marking the trail but other then that it was a dream come true!!
It was outstanding. The only bad thing was the rain. Oh well, I enjoy it anyway.
It was interesting but disappointed cause the outside of the mansion wasn't in its originaors and the outside was being renovated.
A GREAT WALKING TOUR. THE TOUR GUIDES WERE VERY INFORMATIVE. Be prepared to do alot of walking. I would highly recommend it!

House worth seeing but we had poor weather so unable to appreciate the views over the river
