Great way to see and get the history about Mount Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery. However, you are on your own for lunch at Mount Vernon, with no options of making reservations at the restaurant there thru Viator. I think that Viator should look into providing that as an option. Other bus groups seemed to have reservations ahead of time and got right in. But if you didn't have reservations, good luck getting in. You could still get lunch, but at a fast food cafeteria. Also, I would advise that the bus leave Mt Vernon about 15 minutes sooner than was scheduled for us, which was 1:30, so you would get to the Cemetery with more time to get to the Changing of the guard ceremony at 3pm. You are at the mercy of the trams to get you there on time, or you miss it, and we did.

This was a great tour and saw more historical sites on the tour than just the two mentioned. I would highly recommend this tour! Unforgettable!

Definitely recommend this tour - time at Arlington was limited so we were only able to see the changing of the guard and wreath laying ceremony. We had 90 minutes and that wasn't enough time to see more as you have to wait for the hop on and hop off trolleys they have and it all takes time.
