Explore George Washington's Mount Vernon

This two-hour private guided tour of George Washington’s Mount Vernon is certain to take pride in your holiday hall of fame for years to come. The popular plantation home in Virginia is one of the nation’s most beloved historic sites and shouldn’t be missed out on during a visit to Washington, DC.

Just 30-minutes outside of America’s capital, you’ll be greeted by your personal guide at the Ford Orientation Centre. Roam around the grounds and garden of the beautiful estate while listening to a narrated history of George Washington’s life.

While exploring the 21-room mansion, you’ll also visit the four-acre Pioneer Farm on the banks of Potomac. This is where Washington tested and implemented his farming practices. You’ll also visit the merchant gristmill and Washington’s distillery which was once the largest whiskey distillery in America at the time, producing nearly 11,000 gallons. Just before the end of the tour, why not lay a wreath on Washington’s tomb?
