Although we were not lucky with the weather, it was a great trip. Always a pleasure to visit Monticello and witness the greatness of Jefferson. I feel strongly that every one, no matter how old, but not too young, should visit this part of our history.

David Cooper our guide was superb. Told us about the sights on the way to Monticello. The stop for lunch at Michie Tavern is great. What a historical, fun place along with a terrific buffet.

Well worth the trip, great driver and a great lunch [Southern-style buffet!]. Lots to take in and a good amount of time to explore the site. We went in summer [July], so there were lots of flowers in bloom and the weather was nice.

The whole experience was excellent from departure to return. Coach was an excellent ride, the driver - the one and only Wayne superb! A very pleasant trip. Enjoyed the scenery on the way and the excursions before arrival at Monticello. We can understand why Jefferson built his home where he did as the views were spectacular. The one downside that was outside of the tour operators control was that the house tour was too rushed. We only had 20 minutes inside the home to explore but hours to see outbuildings and gardens. Would have appreciated more time inside. However, a great trip and memorable one. Steffan and Cheryl

Great trip. We first stopped at an old time, Mishers Tavern and went thru all the rooms and out buildings.
We then ate at the on-site, all you can eat restaurant. The cooking was like Grandma used to make, especially the fried chicken and black eyed peas!

We then proceeded to Monticello. We watched a movie first then proceeded up to the house. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and enjoyed answering all of our questions. It is amazing the ingenuity that was put into this house (along with Washington's Mount Vernon). We went thru many of the rooms on the main house and the out buildings, then had tome to explore on our own.
