Excellent trip .... the driver was outstanding, especially in troubleshooting and fixing a problem with the bus ... the film of Jefferson was excellent prep for the visit ... plenty of time to walk around and explore ... the movie shown on the return trip was stupid faux history and way too loud .... lunch at the Inn was fun ...

Very enjoyable tour. My complaint is that there just isn't enough time.

The tour was exceptional. The tour bus was comfortable, and the video during the ride was very informative. Once we arrived at Montecello, the docents on site were great.

Great tour and day trip! I've always wanted to visit Monticello and glad I finally did. I read the reviews on Viator prior to booking and now I am paying it forward. The bus ride was comfortable with a friendly bus driver. The drive there featured a DVD on Thomas Jefferson and the ride back featured a movie. The tour of Jefferson's house was awesome and the tour guide was very informative. The Monticello grounds and surrounding views are amazing. I was able to catch most of one of the two free tours of different parts of the grounds. While we were given several hours at Monticello, I personally could have used a bit more time...but then again I am a history buff and tend to take a while soaking everything in. In summary, it was a great day trip and tour. Highly recommended!

Our driver was very professional, friendly, and courteous. Enjoyed both the tavern good guide tour, and excellent meal. Montecello was lovely good guide, and I have a renewed appreciation for this truly unique, conflicted, and intelligent man. I am proud to call Thomas Jefferson one of our founding fathers.
