Full description

Discover the enduring tribute to the men and women that have dedicated their lives to defending the ideals of the United States of America with a tour of Arlington National Cemetery. Explore more than 600 acres of hallowed ground that once belonged to George Washington's adopted son, George Washington Parke Custis. In 1857, Custis left the property to his daughter Mary Anna Randolph Custis, when it became the family home for her and her husband Robert E. Lee. Throughout its history, the grounds have been used for various purposes, including serving as a camp and headquarters for Federal Troops during the Civil War, and as a safe haven for slaves transitioning to freedom after abolition. Arlington National Cemetery held its first military burial on 13 May 1864, and is now the final resting place for more than 400,000 active duty service members, veterans, and their families. Honor the men and women who gave their lives in service at 3 stops which include the JFK Gravesite, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and The Arlington House.

Arlington was one of the first things added to our itinerary when we booked a trip to Washington DC and whilst we’re glad we made the journey out to the cemetery, it sadly wasn’t for us. Just our opinion but the whole experience felt too ‘touristy’ and a little disrespectful to all the brave servicemen and women laid to rest there.

It is a very interesting tour in this place, which can only be discovered with this means of transport, in complete peace of mind, with the possibility of taking your time in various places and taking the tram again after seeing the following. However the comments surely very good are only in American...

We took the tram tour of Arlington Natl. Cemetery. Before leaving the welcome center, our guide told us some history of the cemetery. They covered what was closed for construction, took questions, and told us about getting off at a stop and being picked up by another tram to continue the tour.
