Mt. Vernon and Old Town Alexandria Bus Tour

Visit two of the most popular destinations in the Washington, DC area and get up close and personal to the well-preserved colonial history of northern Virginia. Your tour will begin in Central Washington, DC where you'll board a climate-controlled coach that will bring you to the historic streets of Old Town Alexandria. Here you'll explore and experience George Washington's hometown, pass Robert E. Lee’s boyhood home, the George Washington Masonic Temple, and the Historic Christ Church.

As you depart Old Town Alexandria, you'll enjoy a scenic drive along the Potomac River to visit George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate - one of Washington, DC area’s most popular sites. Once you arrive, you'll explore historic Mount Vernon with a guided tour of the grounds as well as ticketed access to the interior of the mansion’s interior where President Washington resided. You'll also visit Washington's beloved gardens as well as his final resting place. There will also be an opportunity to grab lunch while at Mount Vernon, and time to visit the education center, and much more!
