My sister and I enjoyed the ride and tour of Mt. Vernon. Your driver was very knowledgeable. The only down side is we wished we could have stayed just a little bit longer.

Our host Joe was the best ,he was excellent in his presence and his explanations. I'd recommend the trip just on him alone. The views of the Potomac and the museum

A great experience of Mount Vernon. , but our trip was cut short. As of Nov 1, the George Washington house closed at 4:00. We were there nov 3…. We had less than 45 min to go they the house and property! We were asked to leave the property at 5:00pm ( an hour earlier than our excursion). The exhibit hall was great but rushed. All in all, we got to see e everything, but did feel a bit rushed. Be sure to ck your times there. An hour can make a difference. I had a quick trip to the gift shop before leaving…we were supposed to have time to have lunch/snack there…no time for either. Felt rushed!! It it was a beautiful tour I’ll never forget thank you!!
