Enjoy George Washington's Home at Mt. Vernon and Arlington Cemetery Tour


See the home of George Washington. It has been restored to the way it looked at the time of his passing in 1799.

You'll actually go inside the Mansion, and receive live commentary as you walk through. You'll see Washington's wharf, his grave, the slave memorial created for those who worked the land you'll be walking on, and enjoy a 4D Movie where when it snows in the movie it snows in the theater.

On our way to Mount Vernon you'll take a ride through historic Old Town Alexandria.

Upon leaving Mount Vernon you'll head to the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Arlington Cemetery.

Itinerary

-Complete Tour of the Mount Vernon Estate including the Mansion of George Washington which has been meticulously restored to the way it looked at the time of his passing in 1799. We will also go through the education centre and see a 4D Movie about the Revolutionary War. When cannons fire, for example, seats vibrate and "smoke" wafts through the room. Fog drifts through the theater at three key moments to help dramatize how the Americans used inclement weather to their advantage in several battles. When Washington and his troops cross the Delaware River, "snow" falls from above the viewers and dissipates just before landing on them.

-We will also go to Arlington National Cemetery where we will witness the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. You will also see the grave of John F. Kennedy, and the eternal flame that Jaqueline Kennedy lit in his honor.
