River trip was great Boat crew very helpful and friendly We loved the a/c on the way back. RS
Informative and easy! Enjoyed the boat, river cruise, and guided tours!
Tony the tour guide was the BOMB! Tony was very personable, informative, friendly and had a GRAND personality. Highly recommend this tour. Worth the money, for sure.
This was a very nice way to see Mount Vernon. A nice peaceful cruise up the river on a beautiful morning. Could have used a little more time at Mount Vernon, but we managed to get it all in. What an amazing piece of property.
WAS GREAT.WILL RECOMEND IT AND WILL DO IT AGAIN
Unbelievable history! Breathtaking views of the Potomac! Stood there imagining how Martha felt as she awaited the return of her husband. Audio guided tour was great, gave so much information as you traveled through the amazing property. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in a group, standing in front of the burial tombs of George and Martha, was an emotional experience. Such a privilege to spend time on the very land and in the very rooms of the property he called home. A full and informative perspective into the life of one of the greatest men to ever live. An absolute must for anyone who loves this great country!
Great way to get to Mt. Vernon. There was plenty of time to see the estate, eat lunch and shop in the gift store. Don't buy any of the jellies or jams they offer if you are flying home...TSA confiscated these items at the airport!
A fab day out
Brilliant tour, so nice to see Washington by boat, calming journey and the tour around the house was very interesting.
Tired of walking - well this is the tour for you. 90 minute cruise on a great boat 3 levels, clean and super staff then ample time to visit Mt Vernon. We learned so much about the Father of our Country. You can't go wrong with this tour!
Great experience. We didn't think we could spend 3 hours there, but we were wrong. So much to see and learn about. The boat ride was great going there as there was narration regarding different things along the shoreline, but the ride back seemed long.
The tour was great enjoyed it a lot.
It was very a nice experience. Driver was very good and he has a very good knowledge about DC. Mount Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery both were excellent places to hang out. I wish I had more time to explore the places. We started at sharp 8 am and back by 5.30 pm.
Due to morning traffic in the city, we missed the boat by a few minutes. The people at the company gave us some options. We chose taking the subway to a point and then the city bus to Mt. Vernon. We then were able to take the cruise back. That was nice and it was really neat to see Mt. Vernon from the Potomac river and other sights on the river.
It was interesting but disappointed cause the outside of the mansion wasn't in its originaors and the outside was being renovated.
Doing what: Mount Vernon Admission Ticket
Enjoyed the boat ride on the Potomac. We liked Mount Vernon very much. Your crew was exceptional.
I find that there was not enough time for the tour at Mount Vernon. To fully explore the Museum and other sites, I think that an extra hour should be added.
The tour is really just a ride to Mt. Vernon and a ride back. Tour guide didn't add a whole lot of information. The biggest problem was that they overbooked the tour. My wife and I were the last two on the bus with one vacant seat in the very back and one next to the driver which was supposed to be the guide's seat. We were not going to go if we couldn't sit together for a 45-minute ride each way, but another group split up for us and the guide stood up the entire way which probably wasn't legal.
Beautiful day and beautiful boat trip. Mt. Vernon was under renovations and was overcrowded. That was a disappointment. But the tour was great and we would go again, just not in the summer.
This tour was disappointing. We spent way too much time at Mount Vernon which left very little time to tour Arlington Cemetery. We had to be back to the bus by 4:30, which meant we ONLY had time to see the Changing of the Guard. There was no time to stop at the Kennedy gravesite or the Lee home. Our teenage grandkids were very disappointed they couldn't stop at the Kennedy gravesite, so we ended up going back to Arlington the next day paid for the Arlington Tour and were able to take our time to see everything. Save your money, don't purchase the VIATOR Tour, do it on your own!
It was easy to book the tour. We really enjoyed the relaxing river trip combined with visit to Mount Vernon. The views of the river added a new dimension to seeing George Washington's home. Mount Vernon is a wonderful stop all by itself: the house, tour, lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn, the new museum, and a fabulous gift shop.
Driver was very knowledgeable and friendly...good time thank you!
United States of America
Great tour and a must see for any vacation in the Washington DC area. The boat cruise on the Potomac River was enjoyable. Once we arrived we had set times for the house tour which allowed plenty of time afterwards to tour different parts of the grounds including a small on-site museum. I found out this large estate and surrounding land is only a fraction of the surrounding land that George Washington owned when he was alive. The tour of home was great and really is a step back in time to the founding days of United States. Highly recommended!
Not a single complaint.....well, except the coffee on the boat was really undrinkable. Strangest off taste I have ever encountered--and I am not normally picky about my coffee. Other than that, everything was great. Everything about the trip was well organized and professional.
