Saturday October 24, 2009 / 10:00amTour of Arlington Cemetery With Special Visit to Fort Myer Stables
How was your experience?
This was a great tour. It does involve a lot of walking and takes about 3 hours (bring water!) but is worth it. Mark is a great guide and full of lots of great info. The stables are definitely the highlight of the tour--the horses are friendly and want you to pet them (those who run the stables don't seem to mind if you bring carrots/small apples to feed to them) and the Private who guided us through this part of the tour (PFC Lee) was fantastic! He was friendly, informative and very proud of the service they provide. We learned a TON of interesting details about this aspect of the final honors that no one else would even think about! Highly recommend this tour! You will get a great view of the city from Arlington House at the top of the cemetary and end of the tour. If possible, allow time to sit and take it all in.
