Well worth going. Mt Vernon is beautiful and functioning as a period far, lovely to see, loved the day.
The trip was amazing. Our driver was very helpful and very knowledgeable. We learned alot and had a wonderful afternoon.
I am enjoying this trip so much. Our guide came on time and he was very informative and fun. The only thing that I wasn't expected is that I thought that we will be strolling around Alexandria, not only passing by. Mount Vernon is very beautiful and I enjoy the museum so much.
Great trip, great guide. Very worthwhile, Mt. Vernon and Old Alexandria were both a very good take.
Lovely place to visit and interesting to see the house and tomb of the Washingtons
Our tour guide, Bobby, was very entertaining. We enjoyed Mt Vernon and seeing Old Town Alexandria. Bobby kept us entertained during the trip from D.C. To Mt. Vernon. He made sure we knew exactly what to do and see while at Mt Vernon
Great trip! My family totally enjoyed it. The tour guide, Joe, was great. I highly recommend Viator, they do a great job!

Wonderful! The driver/tour guide was upbeat and knowledgeable, making the trip lots of fun on the way to and from Mount Vernon. We were able to stop and take pictures in Alexandria, which was nice. Once we got to Mount Vernon, we were then given time to go off on our own, which worked out well since there is SO much you can do there. By the way, Mount Vernon is absolutely beautiful, and well worth the visit!
First of all, the vehicle was lux, clean, and very comfortable. There was a slight delay in arrival, but we were kept informed by phone so it wasn't a problem. Our driver, Joe, was polite, well informed, and presented information with a good dose of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed the trips to Mt Vernon and Alexandria, Va. Before taking the tour at Mt V, we were given good tips on how to best enjoy the estate. All in all, a good experience,
It was snowing in March! By this time it stopped snowing and the frigid cold air turned the snow into ice. Ive never had to bundle up that much. The van picked us up promplty. It was a total of seven people and it was very private. The driver showed us Washington's church and bar/restaurant were imporrtant historical figures used mingle. Then we went to Mt. Vernon. Beautiful sight!!! We decided to walk around farm to the slave quarters where few tourists went because it was too cold. I couldn't feel my body but it was worth having sights all to ourselves.
The original state of Mt Vernon is remarkable I wasn't expecting to be able to see so many of the staff and slave quarters. Everyone in our group of 11yrs to 76yrs was engaged in the tour and we learned a lot at the Alexandria stop. We actually sat where George Washington and his family had - talk about history coming to life!
Loved this tour and found both Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria really interesting and glad we booked this. Only small feedback would be to allow a little more time in Old Town Alexandria but as mentioned really enjoyed this.
Mt Vernon and Old Town Alexandria Day Trip from Washington DC
We really enjoyed this tour - it was a small group and the guide was very knowledgable. It rained during our visit but it did not stop us from seeing all of structure, grounds and the graves of the Martha and George Washington.
The movie before you go into the groups was very informative - don't miss it - it is included in the ticket.
Try the food count for a bite to eat after your tour has pizza - sandwiches and salads - and sweets of course. It is typical - nothing special, but if you are hungry it will fit the bill.
My favorite part about the trip was visiting the church the Washingtons attended in Alexandria - we had a member of the church who was very knowledgable about the Washingtons and the history of the church. We also got to sit in the Washington pew.
Fantastic! Must not miss! Beautiful location! Pick up and drop off is very convenient as Mt. Vernon is about 45 minutes from D.C. city center probably longer if there's a lot of traffic
Loved this tour very interesting easy to get to meeting place and guide was very informative and fun loved the fact we were dropped back to our hotel after a great day.
Only wish I'd had more time. So much to see at Mt. Vernon. Don't miss the education building!
Joe and Bobby gave me a great history lesson. I learned a lot from them. I wished we had time to stop in Alexandria and look at the sites.
