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.

Incredibly beautiful and awe inspiring. Love the home tour and the additional tours of the grounds were a pleasant surprise -

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.
