What to expect

You’ll take a guided tour to the first stop, Mount Vernon – which was the home of George and Martha Washington. Experience life in Washington’s time on this tour and find out how he came to be the first president. This retroactive look at his timeline will show you where he came from, how he won the respect of his peers and everything that he did for the country. His life was fascinating and he’s a truly interesting historical figure to learn all about.

Please arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to your assigned departure time.

What to remember

  • Once the tour departs, guests cannot join along the route
  • You should arrive between 10.30am-10.45am to check in properly
  • Drivers are licensed DC sightseeing guides, but they do not get off and accompany you to each memorial, as they are responsible for the motor coach, itself
