Despite the snowy and cold weather, I had a lovely time! Mark is very knowledgeable and friendly, and the group size was perfect. Visiting with the horses was a treat, and I learned a lot about their upkeep and care from the army staff.

Excellent tour at a good pace by a very knowledgeable guide. It was a treat to visit the horses in the stable. The tour details should explain that the tour ends a half hour walk from the starting point.

I would suggest you save some money and opt for the TourMobile tour of Arlington National Cemetery. Mark was not very informative, nor did he communicate much information that was not on a map of the Cemetery.

Very interesting and informative. Guide (Mark) was knowledgeable and shared info that was not generally known about specific grave sites of well known individduals. The stables wee neat.

We had perfect weather for this tour - it was a great post-holiday bit of exercise and edu-tainment. The horses were a special highlight, even though Sgt. York tried to eat my hat. Would definitely recommend!
