Review from Winning Bidder:

"I would just like to say that I purchased this item two years ago, and our family had the pleasure of touring Mt Vernon with Cathy. It was a wonderful tour, getting to see portions of the house and grounds that the standard tours do not provide access to. In addition, our children were allowed to lay a wreath at Washington's tomb. No one who purchases this tour will end up disappointed. We strongly endorse it. Chad Carlson, MD Des Moines, IA"        

"Discover the real George Washington at Mount Vernon!  In addition to being America?s most visited historic home, the estate now includes 25 interactive galleries and theaters. The Ford Orientation Center and the Donald W. Reynolds Museum & Education Center feature artifacts, original movies, hands-on exhibits, and an immersive Revolutionary War "snow" experience.   Learn about Washington?s life, from his boyhood to his wartime service, agricultural entrepreneurship, and his presidency.  Tour the beautifully restored mansion, four distinctive gardens, and get a glimpse of Mount Vernon?s working farm."
