We really enjoyed Mt. Vernon and the “extra” stops that Wayne made. Christ Church was amazing and the additional Alexandria spots were very interrupted. Wayne obviously is passionate about the history of Alexandria and DC area! His personal comments about 9/11 actually brought tears to my eyes! I will never forget how that day made me feel! Arlington National Cemetery is always humbling! Such a beautiful place with a history so stronge, tragic and touching. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unlnown Soldier is always humbling! These mem and woman are so dedicated! It was 95 degrees when we were there! The guards carry on regardless of the weather!
Ann Marie’s 40 years of experience shines through as she entertained us through Old Town Alexandria on route to Mt. Vernon. An art fair in Old Town Alexandria ended up closing streets, so we ended up having more time exploring George Washington’s farmhouse home. With lots of witty jokes and information that can only come from a guide, Ann Marie delivers. And thanks Milton for driving us around and keeping us hydrated with ice cold water!
Edgar was a wonderful tour guide! This tour is so well done and full of history. It’s a must see in our book. We will take it again with family when we return. Also, wonderful guide company. I left our bag of souvenirs in the bus after the tour was over. I got back to hotel and realized I left it in the bus. I contacted the company and they brought our bag to the hotel!! Above and beyond wonderful service!
Our travel guide was very knowledgeable and polite. The Bus was very clean and easy to get on and off of. You could see out of the windows well and the air conditioner was perfect. They did not allow any food or drink on the bus which was a good thing because helps the bus stay clean. They have a cooler there with water for all the guest. We were very happy with this tour to Mt. Vernon.
Edgar was a wonderful guide. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I just wish the tour was more than 5 hours because I would have loved to stay a little bit longer at Mount Vernon and explore Alexandria. Overall a great experience. I would recommend this tour very strongly.
