Combo: Mount Vernon and DC After Dark
Those who are in DC for a day and a night can take advantage of this special combo offer to fill their time with sights. This special offer allows you to see Mount Vernon, as well as all of the sights on our DC After Dark tour. With the offer, you can book both tour options at a discounted rate.
What will you see on this Tour?
With so many sights and monuments being encompassed in this combination, the question should be ‘what can’t you see on this tour?’ The tour takes place for 4.5 hours during the day and then a further three hours in the evening for the After Dark portion. And, you don't have to take both tours in the same day, if you wish to spread out your experience with Gray Line, DC!
The first part of this tour includes Mount Vernon, the home and final resting place of the first president. The mansion and surrounding gardens offer plenty of chances to walk around and learn. The grounds were a working plantation and the tombs are set in a beautiful garden. While touring the estate you may explore the Distillery, Gristmill, Pioneer Farm and more.
Finally, with this combo deal, you’ll be taken on our DC After Dark tour in the evening, which is filled with history. This tour mainly focuses on memorials and famous sights that look simply breathtaking in the evening. They include the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and White House (photo stop only) – each of which look stunning in the darkness. The biggest monuments, including the Washington Monument, can also still be seen from the coach tour and this tour offers a totally unique way to see DC.
Why should you go on this Tour?
If you enjoy a bargain and saving money on a tour that will stay in your memory for years to come, then check out this combo.
