This tour was well worth the cost. The experience was great and there’s a value in having a tour guide. Alex was beyond our expectations! He answered questions, held doors open for us, spent time getting to know us, saved us seats when we took a little longer than expected. His level of hospitality is something that’s missing in our world and he needs to be commended for his service. This was a little weekend surprise for my husband and I thank you Walks and Alex for making it memorable!!

We enjoyed the boat ride and guided tour of Mt Vernon even though we had a bit of rain. Ayana (sp?) was quite knowledgeable and supplemented the narrative on the ship and at the estate. We would have appreciated a bit more explicit instructions on how the amenities worked for our group on the ship - coffee and muffins, etc were included but that wasn’t clear to us. The ship while mostly clean needs maintenance.

There was a little confusion about the tour within the tour boat. The sign I read never mentioned TripAdvisor so I was in the wrong boarding line. Otherwise our tour guide A was great. The weather was descent which was a plus for this time of year.
