    • Make the most of Mount Vernon

      Discover the home of the first US President, George Washington, on a guided bike tour of his grand estate, with the added benefit of bike rental. Picturesque gardens, stables, and a home of inestimable history overlook placid blue waters, and you'll have time to enjoy it all with insight and facts from your guide.

      Explore the fascinating historic outbuildings, where a blacksmiths, spinning house, and smokehouse once echoed with the sounds of their trades, nestled amongst the four gardens. Your friendly guide will be on-hand to tell you the history of the Upper, Lower, Botanical and Nursery Gardens, all of which delight the senses with rare blooms and fragrant fruit.

      Take in the tomb, where visitors pay their respects each day with a wreath-laying ceremony. The New Tomb is the final resting place of George and Martha Washington, and many visitors to Mount Vernon cherish the chance to honor America's Founding Father. Nearby, share a somber moment at the Slave Cemetery, where archeological work is ongoing, and the Slave Memorial, where there is also the opportunity to lay a wreath.

      Find out about George Washington's passion for visionary agriculture with engaging demonstrations of his visionary fishing and farming practices. Here, you'll be able to wander along the wharf for a perfect view of the Potomac River, and see for yourself the incredible 16-sided treading barn.

      At the end of the day trip, you’ll cruise with the Potomac Riverboat Company to Washington DC, America's capital and center of government, allowing you plenty of time to continue your exploration of the nation's political history.

      An unforgettable sightseeing bicycle tour offering exquisite sites of national significance.
