probably a really good tour for americans but the absolute focus on George washington and his life etc was really of no interest to me. I did expect it to be more about the general history etc and less about George. Guides were really nice...More

Visited here with my family. Price was reasonable, tour guide well informed, and staff very friendly. Tour guide was a volunteer who didn't harass for tips. They were kind enough to call for a cab after our tour.

Small but fascinating, introductory film explains the history and then a tour of the ground floor of the house. A splendid tea room serving proper English tea and cake on site just added to the charm. Take you National Trust cards for a discounted entry...More

Can you walk here from the cruise terminal? How much time would you allow for a visit?

It would be a 2.3 mile walk and you would need about 90 minutes to do the House and tunnels.
How often do tours of the George Washington House run? Are they every day throughout the day? How long do they last? I am looking for a tour with a guide or docent, not a self tour. Thank you.
