It was a wonderful way to see Mt. Vernon, when we had NOT rented a car for our stay. It was easy to get to the dock area using the Metro. The sights down the Potomac River were interesting and the guide did a great job of telling us interesting facts about what we were seeing. I highly recommend this tour to families staying in DC who have not rented transportation, but are relying on the Metro as a way to see sights.
