For a minute won the trip was fantastic. Our Driver/guide, Robert was cheerful extremely knowledgeable and presented his information clearly and often with humor. He was very kind and made all of us feel important and was concerned that we enjoy ourselves. Definitely an asset to the company. The tour itself was wonderful. Enjoyed Mount Vernon very much! Definitely worth the trip. Wear comfortable shoes. If it’s sunny bring an umbrella and or a fan and hat. Walking around the grounds was very warm but the house is air-conditioned which was very comfortable. Beautiful extensive grounds so take your time and enjoy it especially the gardens.

It's an amazing experience to be at Arlington and see the sheer beauty and bravery of the site and its inhabitants. The changing of the guards is a time honored tradition and it was a privilege to see it. The monuments were spectacular. Our tour guide, Larry, was amazing and had a great personality for the different places he took us.

Edger was so awesome! He is one of the best guides I have ever had on a tour. He was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make sure we (tourists) had plenty of water and gave extra information about Mount Vernon and Alexandria than I will ever remember.

Fantastic day out! Our guide to Monticello was Dion who was helpful, knowledgeable, very funny and told great stories.  We had a great day with Dion at Monticello.

Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and made sure the entire tour was exciting and interesting
