Great guides, wonderful tour - Very nice tour. Alot. Packed into 8 hours. Our morning guide Charles was fantastic. Our afterrnoon guide, Robert was great and so knowledgeable. Only thing I would change is that Robert really used the horn. But, we did get around very fast.

DC trip - The first part of our tour felt rushed and we didn't have enough time to really see and read all of the information we wanted too on the Mall. We will do a Hop on, Hop off tour our next trip so we can spend more time seeing exactly what we want too. The second part of the tour with Robert to Mt. Vernon and Alexandria was awesome! (other than the rain). We had plenty of lesurely time to wander, read and investigate the estate. We learned thta our guide Robert was originally from our home state of Wisconsin.

Washington DC Tour - The tour of Washington DC arrived late and the tour guide spoke with a thick accent so at times it was very difficult to understand what was being said.

Viator’s Mount Vernon Fell short - The monuments portion of the tour was well done. We paid for the additional Mount Vernon tour…We did not realize this was an addition… We were pretty much dropped off at Mount Vernon later in the day in a separate vehicle. We would have preferred to do this first in the morning as the featured portion of the tour not as some work it in deal. The tour guides seemed as though this was an inconvenience to them and asked us three times if we could go on another day… So i didn’t think 300 plus dollars for two of us was worth it.. I’m recommendimg to friends and family that they do a hop on hop off monuments tour and taking a “real” tour to mount vernon or ubering themselves out there… This experience was not worth 300 plus dollars… When i bring additional family back later in the season we’re skipping Viator..
