This was a wonderful experience. Well paced, great driver/guide, comfortable. Mt. Vernon is beautiful, and the education center was fabulous. Arlington National Cemetery is mind-blowing. My only disappointment is that the Iwo Jima Memorial is listed as a destination, but it is actually at the Cemetery. I didn't understand that and missed the stop on the tram.

This tour was great! We saw everything. There was plenty of time at each site to take pictures and hear about the site. It brought back memories from high school when I was lucky enough to be chosen to lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Thanks for the wonderful tour!
