Tour Details

George Washington was one of the most important men in United States history. He was a Founding Father, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and most importantly, our nation's first President. On this Mount Vernon tour, you will take a step back in time and explore the historical house where George Washington and his wife, Martha, lived for more than 40 years. You'll also get to visit the delightful town of Alexandria.

Begin your Mount Vernon, Alexandria, and Arlington National Cemetery tour at the 315 foot high clock tower that marks the Old Post Office. You will travel to Mount Vernon, in Virginia, on a luxurious bus with your expert guide. Just a short while later, you'll arrive at the famous George Washington home. Tour through this iconic estate right on the Potomac River and its surrounding gardens and landscape with your professional guide by your side. You will start your George Washington house tour with the Ford Orientation Center and its informative mini-movie that shows the most pivotal points in Washington's life. You will then explore the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center, with its numerous short movies and over 500 artifacts outlining Washington's intriguing life. Make sure you watch "Washington Dentures,"¯ which explains the truth behind his "wooden"¯ teeth. You’ll stop at Arlington National Cemetery, the final resting place of more than 250,000 military men and women. See the Tomb of the Unknowns and the eternal flame of former president John F. Kennedy.

George Washington loved Mount Vernon so much that he passed away right there in the master bedchamber. He requested to be buried on his beloved estate, and you will get to see his well-preserved tomb. If you are touring between April and October, make sure you experience the special wreath laying ceremonies at 10:00 am or 2:00 pm. After you explore all of the fabulous George Washington estate, tour through the Old Town of Alexandria. In Alexandria, there are historic landmarks such as Robert E. Lee's childhood home and Market Square, the oldest continuous running marketplace in the United States. Your patriotic day will conclude back in DC at your starting point.
