Good tour. Air conditioning on the bus broke down on the way back from Mt. Vernon though. It was very hot and humid that day. The driver was very professional and apologized. He was melting, also.

Itinerary

Your half-day excursion begins as you board your luxury motor coach for a day filled with American history dating back to the American Colonial Era. We will depart the Nation's Capital for the State of Virginia, where you will begin our adventure with a visit to Old Town Alexandria!

Dating back to the early 1700s, Old Town Alexandria played a significant role in early American history. However, it is mostly known for being the adopted hometown of America's first President, George Washington. Gray Line will provide an in-depth overview of the town's historical facts, show you its cobblestoned streets lined with historic buildings. We will visit Christ Church, where both George Washington and Robert E. Lee, had regularly attended services.

After exploring Old Town Alexandria, we will depart for George Washington's Mount Vernon. The 10-mile journey to George Washington's former estate will take you along the scenic Potomac River, where you will learn the importance it had during the era, all while viewing some of the regions' scenery and sites like the 200-year-old Fort Washington.

Once at Mount Vernon, you will gain access to the estate. The entrance onto the grounds of Mount Vernon includes a host of colonial-era buildings, beautiful gardens, and a working distillery and gristmill. The estate's Museum and Education Center feature hundreds of artifacts, movies, a 4D theater, and an interactive theater that introduces visitors to the real George Washington. Don't forget to check out the gift shop to bring home a piece of history!
