Highlights
  • Visit Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria with a guide: Hear stories you won’t find in guidebooks
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from downtown location
  • Mount Vernon entrance and museum admission included
  • Comfortable tour bus: No need to navigate on your own 
What to Expect
Make your way to the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capitol Hill for a late-morning departure time of 11am. No need to plan logistics or map routes yourself: After a pleasant 30-minute bus ride out of the city, arrive at Mount Vernon, George Washington’s former estate that overlooks the Potomac River. Tour the mansion and museum with your guide, who regales the group with little-known facts and stories about Washington’s life and legacy. After lunch in Mount Vernon (own expense), hop back on the bus for a guided tour of Old Town Alexandria. The guide points out landmarks you may have missed on your own, including a tavern where the Founding Fathers used to meet and the infamous 7-foot-wide Spite House. As the driver navigates the streets for you, enjoy views of historic 17th- and 18th-century homes. Return to the tour’s departure point in evening, conveniently located near all major downtown landmarks and transportation options.

Charles was an amazing tour guide on my trip to Mount Vernon. Right from the moment I boarded the bus I felt welcome and Charles told us about the history of George Washington and Mount Vernon. The trip to Alexandria was very informative as well. I highly recommend this tour.
