Still raving about it 2.5 years later. Would do it again but next time I'll make sure we book lunch in the restaurant if possible and go out on the river.

The driver was very knowledgeable and narrated almost the entire time of the bus ride. The tour included a lot on Alexandria VA, that I had not expected. The driver gave us good advice upon arrival at Mt. Vernon and cautioned us to do the mansion tour first because of the long lines.

The tour itinerary apparently changed the day exact day of our tour. Mount Vernon was not included as previously advertised. However, even without visiting Mount Vernon, the tour was very good and filled a seven hour day. The driver was very knowledgeable and helpful.

If you are pressed for time, this is a great tour of two one of a kind sites. Bus driver was friendly and helpful. We had a great time with our grandkids who were 16 and 14.

Missed breakfast at our hotel to make it to the tour on time...7:45 arrival for 8:00 tour..only to be told they no longer do the Arlington National Cemetery portion and to come back at 11:30 for the Mt Vernon tour. Very frustrated. When I called Viator regarding the issue I was shuffled automatically to Greyline Tours. Very disappointed in Viator's service with this issue. I would have expected more from a company I have used several times in the past. No help at all. had issues with Washington 1/2 day too...they didn't stop at all the places listed

The amount of time allowed for eating lunch and visiting Mount Vernon was a little short. Would have like the ability to take a little slower pace and really visit all of the various parts of the estate.

Excellent driver/lecturer. Mt. Vernon was the right amount of time for us. We would have preferred another hour at the Arlington Cemetery.

The tour was ok, be careful because at Mount Vernon they would not honor our lunch voucher that were paid for and part of the tour. They were in the amount of 14.00 and they wouldn't accept them, we end having to pay again for whatever we chose to eat after supposedly included in the tour.
