Another stellar tour with Viator. This tour was both educational, emotional and fun. The changing of the guard at Arlington was amazing to watch. Our guide was knowledgeable and made the entire tour a most pleasant experience.
Great day spent touring Mt. Vernon and Arlington national cemetery. Bus was very comfortable and driver was extremely knowledgeable. Had lunch in the restaurant at mt Vernon. It was very good and the service was great. There were period dressed actors on the grounds which added to the pleasant experience.
Mount Vernon is a real must if you stay a week in DC. The view over the Potomac, and the quality in which the plantation and mansion have been preserved were incredibly beautiful. The audio-guide included in the ticket, the guides in the mansion and the actors playing the original plantation workers gave interesting insights in how life during George and Martha's time must have been.
The afternoon visit to Arlington Cemetery was a nice filler for the whole day. One point of note, not diminishing the tour's worth in itself: if a summer storm breaks out while visiting the cemetery, do not get off the trolley unless you want to risk getting soaked as there is hardly any shelter on the grounds.
Very well run, good your guide and very little wasted time
We enjoyed our tour through the home of George Washington, but walking through the estate was the best part. The tour guides around the area were so informative and it was wonderful to stroll around the places that Washington loved. I was so surprised by how many presidents and dignitaries have visited his tomb and home.
Good guide ,comfortable bus always ontime, alot of time to enjoy the sites
Our tour guide , Wayne , was phenomenal . He knew more about Washington DC, Alexandria , General Washington , and Mount Vernon than any book or website I have ever seen ! He also showed us the church where General Washington worshipped , and Fort Washington with a photo opportunity . Wayne also recommended the amount Vernon Inn for lunch , and it was a great restaurant with friendly service and delicious food . I can think of nothing negative to say about our day . My husband and I were with our two daughters , who are in their 20s . Something for everyone . Awesome day !
We loved our tour to Arlington and Mount Vernon...Even thought it was 100 degrees!! The sites were great and amazing to see but the tour was amazing because of our tour guide AL. I was traveling with myself and 3 teenagers Age 14-16 and Al was so great to include them and make them feel part of the tour. They have mentioned numerous times that Al was the best part of their trip to Washington DC. Book and ask for AL...you wont be disappointed!
This trip is a must do if you are visiting DC. Big Al was an amazing tour guide! Plenty of time to explore the sites and Big Al gives you great suggestions as to how you can get the most of your experience.
Very good tour. I would recommend this tour to all ages.
