In the Footsteps of George Washington: Day Cruise to Mount Vernon

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Nice excursion on the Potomac to Mount Vernon and back. The day 's weather was beautiful so, naturally, nealry all of the passengers sat on top. Unfortunately, you hear zero of the historical commentary when sitting up there, even if you plant yourself nearly directly beneath the speaker system. So that aspect of trip was disappointing. Otherwise, the time allowed to tour around Mount Vernon was just right. This was a great, unique way to visit a historical landmark and enjoy the river!

My Review

This was a nice way to visit many (though not all) of the major monuments and memorials, and the persepctive experienced at night was quite memorable. Would have preferred nixxing the FDR Memorial in favor of the Jefferson, and maybe getting out to view the White House rather than just drive by. But all in all, tour was worth it. Sitting on the left or right of the trolley didn't really seem to matter in re: which side had the better views, contrary to reviews we'd read before the trip. Our guide Darin was very good - his restaurant recommendations were spot on!
