Unfortunately it rained the day we went... Otherwise it was an excellent tour and George Washington had an impressive estate! Our driver was funny!
It was a comfortable ride...

It was a comfortable ride to and from, and we had plenty of time to walk around the grounds, before and after our tour without feeling rushed.
Very interesting fact...

I enjoyed taking the tour for the first time. I would recommend it again. It would have been nice to be able to have a stop in Alexandria and look around. Other than that the tour guide gave us a history lesson on what went on with George Washington.
