Despite managing to pick a day when it would snow - wet heavy snow - throughout our whole walk, it was still a very enjoyable day. The tour lasted three hours and the time spent at the stables was the highlight - especially as most of the main...continued

Good and informative tour, but no apparent coordination with Ft. Myer ahead of time for entry to the post, which was surprising. Was also disappointed at no provided tour of Arlington House, which actually cut the tour to 2 & 1/2, not 3, hours.

Mark (the guide) knows his stuff and is able to gear his tour to the interests and physical ability of the participants. Interesting and fun!

Mark was a great tour guide; We couldn't throw a question at him that he couldn't answer. He was very positive and "into it", despite the fact that it was cold and raining, then snowing out. We got to spend a good amount of time with the horses...continued

My wife and I have lived in the area for 35+ yrs and have never visited AC before. The weather was wet and drizzly, which made ours a "tour for two" as everyone else stayed away. Mark was professional and personable adding a big plus to these...continued

Our guide Mark really knew his way around Arlington and really knew details. He did a great job including the child in our group and putting context on history without talking down to us or boring the adults. We had a beautiful day for the...continued

for Iwo Jima is about a...continued

The tour guide was very informative and kept the pace good. I have some problems walking and it is a very long uphill walk but he was very accomodating. We mainly went on the tour for my granddaughters to see the Ft. Meyer Stables. My...continued

The tour took you to most of the major areas of the cemetery and to Fort Meyers, which was an added bonus.

This is an interesting walking tour. You do walk but the pace was perfect.
The cemetery has so much history and Mark, our guide, seems to know a lot of it. Nice size group and you get to see things you can't see from a tourmobile. Seeing the...continued

Tour Guide Mark was excellent-- extremely knowledgeable and constantly sharing detailed background/ancillary information that added to one's perspective and appreciation of the Cemetery facts and history.
