We were unaware that it was not a guided tour it was basically a ride to Mount Vernon and then a ride to Arlington cemetery where we then had to find her own way home very disappointing for the price that I paid for this

Expensive One Way Ride Tour!!!

Our tour driver was nice and he gave us some history and pointed out some famous buildings along our way to Mount Vernon and Alexandra Town. The tour of George Washington home was great and we enjoyed the history and the beautiful home and sceneries of the property. We only wish it wasn’t so rushed during the guided tour of the house. They rushed us from room to room and was not very informative. We upgraded our tour with Arlington Cemetery so I asked our driver if I could leave my heavy gift bags that we bought from the GW museum on the bus he said No. He said his tour was over and he left. We were surprised and upset because we had paid for the round trip tour and thought he would of drop us back at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the end of the Arlington Cemetery tour. This was very misleading in the description of the tour because it advertised a round trip pickup and drop off. If I had known it was just a one way ride there I wouldn’t of paid $119 pp for basically driving us there. Uber would of been a cheaper option.

Unfavorable, Unprofessional
Vanessa_P
, Mar 2022
Zohery Tour company was disorganized, late & had unclean tour transportation. We had to take an Uber to our first tour destination because the tour guide, Joe, was running 2 hours late. Then we were told he would be waiting for us at 12:30pm for pick up and he still had us wait 20 minutes for him to pick us up ( we were the only ones on the tour). The van was very dirty and covered with animal hair. Lastly, we were told we would have to get a ride with another tour company back to hotel four hours later. Moreover, we were told incorrect information about the closing times of Mt Vernon, which resulted in the order of a much more expensive Uber as we didn’t wish to wait in the cold and rain for an extra hour to get a ride with other tour group.

The Washington tour is...
Roxana_H
, Mar 2022
The Washington tour is great. The issue was that we booked the 5 hour tour at 2 pm but we had to wait 30 minutes to leave the hotel because the tour guide came late. Then they said that we would first pass by old Alexandria, so we arrived at 3:00 pm to the Washington house. At 4:30 pm they asked us to start leaving the area, so we couldn't see much from the entire place. . I wish I could have more time. The house closed at 5 pm. We only has 1 1/2 hour from the 4 hours we thought we will have. That wasn't enough.

Never again

The van…NOT a tour bus, was a piece of trash. As you can see in the photo, my son was sitting in a broken seat, and the woman behind him had to deal with a seat-back encroaching into her leg space. The van had little to no shock absorbers, and the ride out was terribly bumpy. We arrived at the meeting place 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure, and because the van is so small, all 5 in our party had to split up. We thought we were going on a nice tour…my husband and I were so embarrassed to have taken my son, his wife, and our grandson on this tour. Our tour guide was so-so…some good history on the way out, but very little on the trip back…after Fort Washington, nothing. Such a disappointing tour.
