This was our first visit to the DC area and we were staying in Alexandria. We didn't have a car and this was a great way to get to Mount Vernon and see the Potomac all in one trip. The speaker did an excellent job explaining what we were seeing and we didn't have any problems hearing him. We arrived at Mount Vernon at 12 and left at 4. There was a shuttle waiting for us at the dock of Mt. Vernon to take us to the top of the hill which is the official start of the Mount Vernon tour. 4 hours is plenty of time to see a lot of Mount Vernon. No you won't have time to see every little thing but you will see most everything. Our family was ready to go at 4. The prices of water/pop/popcorn were very reasonable. I'd highly recommend this tour.
