Worth the tripTo Mount Vernon & night tour
Katherine_S, 03-10-2022
Mount Vernon was very interesting it had Washington family home, and family tombs, memorial for the slaves that worked there, the whole workings of the grounds and buildings. They also had a nice museum area with a place to eat and a gift shop. I would definitely to do a full day tour starting at 2 was not a adequate amount of time. The night tour was also great saw all the monuments and some I missed. The tour guide had ton of information at each site.

It was the most amazing tour. We took the 8 hour tour to Mt. VERON THEN THE NIGHT TOUR, Robert was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend it.
The Mt Vernon part was very good. But the Night tour was awful.

I enjoyed the Mt Vernon part. The driver was very knowlegable. But the Night Tour was awful. The driver kept giving out incorrect and misleading information. (the Washington Monument is not the tallest building in the world, nor was Francis Perkins Abraham Lincoln's Labor Secretary nor was Vietnam War fought in 1947). Also, we were let out to see the FDR memorial but it isn't lighted at night and was dangerous to walk around in.
I would do it again but plan better

The first half of the experience was great.. but bus had broken seat and was very uncomfortable on the bump in the road. One of the ladies was tossed out of her seat. enjoyed the tur guide though. very informative. Also just tell people t eat at Mount Vernon.. there is no wsy to eat in between the two parts but that does cut in to the time at Mt Vernon

The second half was a beautiful tour and the bus was comfortable but the tour guide was pretty montone and hard to understand at times.
