Step by Step

Enjoy a trip full of history and beautiful scenery on this private tour to Mount Vernon from Washington DC, in which only you and your group will participate exclusively.

Depending on the number of people included, the most suitable vehicle will be selected to take you from the US capital to the estate of George Washington (1732-1799), one of the "Founding Fathers" of the American nation and its first president.

Located about 25km from the city, the Mount Vernon mansion is living history for having been the home of George Washington. Here you can enjoy a collection of artifacts, clothing, furniture and much more that belonged to the politician.

You will have the opportunity to visit the essential places of his house, among which the green areas, the nursery, the gardens and the greenhouse stand out. Together, they provide a spectacular setting that reflects one of the characteristic postcards of the region.

Your experience will be elevated to the highest level when you explore the interior of Mount Vernon, when you will be taken deep into the life and legacy of this military revolutionary, a story that you will learn from a professional guide throughout the tour.

On the way to the mansion, you'll discover the wonders along the way: the historic Old Town of Alexandria, the small but historic city on the banks of the Potomac River that is home to monuments and must-see sites such as the George Washington Masonic National Monument and Historic Christ Church, among others.
