Walk in the footsteps of Washington with this sensational five-hour excursion from the capital. You’ll be picked up in a luxurious, climate-controlled vehicle while your guide explains the significance of some of the city’s most recognizable monuments. A short drive brings you to the candy-colored architecture of Alexandria, where you can take a tour of some monuments notable to the former president – including the Masonic Temple and Christ Church.

Arguably the birthplace of the city itself, George Washington’s former estate is located just 13 miles from the capital’s center. The second half of this tour involves an in-depth foray through the mansion, with entrance tickets to the grounds and gardens included. Interactive, historic reenactments bring the founding father’s story to life, while a guided tour of the building helps shine a light on his fascinating story.

Reviews

Great Experience

We had a wonderful tour with Joey! She was knowledgeable, engaged, funny, friendly and a terrific host. We highly recommend this tour. Our only regret is that we didn't have another day to spend in DC sightseeing! - Brittany W.

Great experience, especially in the rain!

Thoroughly enjoyed our you, Brittany and Marcus were great! It was raining off and on all day but we still had a great time, they were energetic and thoughtful and attentive all day and gave us great info and tips. The tour was well planned and efficiently run. I was so glad we didn’t have to walk in the rain or try and drive around ourselves in it. I was a DC native for a few years and I’ve walked these memorials in the past, I would say the bus is the only way to go and those luxury buses are much nicer than the trolley style. - Eric M

Excellent value

Did it on my first day in DC and gave me ideas on what to revisit or what other venues to go to. The guide Christopher was very knowledgeable and came over excellently. - Russell P.

Comfortable transport and knowledgeable guide

I did the Old Town Alexandria and Mt Vernon tour. Teri and Maggie were our guides/driver. I enjoyed the tour so much. Comfortable transport. Knowledgeable guide Teri kept us entertained and updated. Nice breaks in between. I would definitely choose them again for other tours. What a great way to get a ride around for a fair cost and entertainment. - Khadija Sheikh
