We toured Mount Vernon and found the estate and tourist facilities to be beautiful and well maintained.Mike, our driver gave us a safe and great experience. I would suggest that Gray Line invest in a public address system that allows the driver to keep both hands on the wheel. He did a great job driving and we never felt endangered. We just believe you should update your communications system.

Excellent tours to both Gettysburg and Arlington/Mt. Vernon.Jay did an excellent job of pointing out local landmarks, places of historic interest, and keeping the passengers engaged.

We were moved by the Marine Memorial at Iwo Jima because my father fought with the Marines depicted in the famous flag raising on Mt Suribachi so Bob gave us a few extra minutes to get photos. He was a caring and kind man and it was demonstrated in his treatment of the tour guests. We had an unforgettable experience.
