Lee, which eventually grew into the 624-acre (253-ha) site that’s still used today.

Great destination

Arlington was a great place to visit and I would highly recommend the location to anyone visiting the area. However the experience will be highly dependent upon the guide that you or your group is assigned. We were instructed to be at least 10-15 min early, our guide was ~15 min late. Additionally our guide didn’t seem happy when the party discussed the history and stories of the area amongst ourselves.

Great guide, we saw way more this way, learned so much we didn't know. The guide customized the tour, helped us get perfectly timed tickets to the Arlington House. She even texted us ahead of time where to meet and what she looked like with good directions. Awesome! Took away all the stress.

We booked the Arlington Nat'l Cemetery Walking Tour (Semi Private) with the hope that an intimate learning experience with our school age children would help bridge a connection between their classroom learning and real life. Enter in our tour guide Tony Spadafora! He turned out to be the perfect guide for this tour; tastefully and respectfully offering a wealth of information on not so simple of content. He answered all of our questions with ease, a smile and was never in a hurry. One of the most impressive experiences was that of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He talked w/us in advance of entering the area to observe the silent zone, taught us about the civilian salute, and knew where the best viewing area was to be able to watch closely the white glove check for the oncoming guard. He educated on the variations of tombstones found throughout the cemetery, family burial plots, the Kennedy family plots, we walked part of the Arlington House estate that was open, and he introduced us to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg plot. There is so much to learn on this tour.

Leigh was terrific. The tour walking was at a good pace but not too demanding. She was extremely well informed on D. C. in general. Her knowledge of the cemetery and its rituals and ceremonies was outstanding enhanced by actually having worked on site. Wonderful gifted guide who made this an uplifting and memorable day.
