Saturday September 20, 2008 / 2:00pmTour of Arlington Cemetery With Special Visit to Fort Myer Stables
How was your experience?
This tour did a good job of covering the highlights of the cemetary in a relaxed way- not too much and not too little. The tour was timed to just arrive on time for a changing of the guard and he told us where to watch for the best view. There was plenty of time for questions or he just let us look around if we weren't the type to rattle off a stream of questions, so the tour is excellent for both types of people! We did go in the stables and pet the horses but there wasn't much explanation of what the horses do, their daily routine, training etc. This was mostly because the SGT on duty wasn't interested in hosting a tour, although at least he let us in. It took 3 hours but the time went fast and we didn't have to walk constantly. The pace was about right for my 8-yr old too.
