Mt. Vernon - not enough time to enjoy the mansion/grounds

Not enough upfront information - had to call twice to find location of the boat as telephone number on the e-ticket was incorrect therefore received wrong info. Called another number night before the tour and fortunately Cassandra was most helpful giving the correct info. Luckily we were staying on The Wharf had we been staying across town things would not have worked out. Also no indication that the boat trip took 1-1/2 hrs each way not leaving enough time to fully enjoy the mansion and gardens.

It was a very enjoyable and and we all had a great time.

Price Dion , our tour guide was very good. He made everything really interesting with a enthusiastic attitude. Also, after finding out that my father was to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery he and his company went the extra mile to present me with a case for the flag which was draped on my father's casket. This was a true gift of kindness. Thank you

Excellent day both on the boat and at Mt Vernon.

We were blessed with a beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyed the time on the river. There was a lot of walking and some standing in line (to get into the mansion) but it was a perfect day for it. The crew was very accommodating and helpful. I love the water so this gave me the best of both worlds.

Vey nice. Edgar, our guide, was excellent. Very knowledgeable.

Edgar, our guide, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and funny. The time on site at Mt. Vernon needs to be about 30-40 minutes longer for a proper visit. We rushed through everything and had to skip some of the museum exhibits. Did not make it to the gift shop either.

The day made me feel proud to be an American.

The trip was very organized and everyone was kind and helpful. We have many freedoms in this country and thanks to George Washington, one of our founding Fathers, we were able to travel to Mt Vernon and walk where he may have walked. It was amazing!
