Traveller Tips

The time of year was perfect too, as it was not too hot or crowded.
Pick up/drop off at our hotel was a nice treat.

Just the information said...
Karen_C, Sept 2023
Just the information said that this trip would allow you time to eat at Mount Vernon and instead back in the van to go at 3 PM. Also was told there would be a ride from the water back up to the hill, waited 40 minutes and no ride came, then friend had an episode of atrial fibrillation walking up that hill.
Excellent Tour of Washington’s family home
Peggy_W, Sept 2023
Excellent tour that also includes historic Alexandria. Our guide was very well informed about the architecture and history of Mt Vernon. There is a very moving memorial to the slaves. Staff readily answer questions about how work was done on the farm. I recommend taking this tour.
Excellent tour!
Angie_G, Sept 2023
What a great tour! I highly recommend this one. I learned a lot of about the area, Washington and the war on top of all the Mount Vernon info I expected.
Great day

Thanks for your business and review.
Genevieve_H, July 2023
I reached out before the meeting time and told the tour operator that my family and I were already at Mt Vernon and I need to know when and where the tour group was going to get to Mt Vernon and I never got a reply back. I couldn’t call my tour operator because I didn’t have their phone number (only text through the Viator app) and so my family waited about an hour before having to just buy new tickets so we could go in. So we wasted a couple hundred dollars and time on a tour that we weren’t given.

You were not at the pickup spot with the other customers so we are not responsible for your decisions.
Worth every penny
Katie_F, July 2023
Our driver went the extra mile for us. Mt Vernon was amazing but the additional narrative of Vernon as well as Washington and Alexandria as we drove through made the trip.

Great trip to Mt. Vernon - just wished there was more time to explore. The grounds are vast, so it takes some time to see it all.

Mount Vernon Trip
Don_B, May 2023
The tour guide was a history teacher and made the trip to and from Mount Vernon interesting and fun. After the tour through the home we were able to walk the extensive grounds and see the farm animals and where George Washington is buried.

Garry_H, May 2023
Firstly guide Robert was great - very knowledgeable. The drive down and back was a little bumpy but went through some lovely areas. Mount Vernon was stunning. Historic house knowledgable guides. The grounds are beautiful. The museum was brilliant. Nice food court and a very nice gift shop. Only wish we could have had longer.

Great half day trip!
pamlangford65, Mar 2023
This was a quick drive from the city to Mt Vernon! We heard about the history on the way and then had plenty of time to explore the property at a leisurely pace. It was rainy the day we visited but we were still able to see everything. I learned many things that I did not know.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks so much we appreciate you.
Rose_H, Mar 2023
