This day cruise to Mount Vernon is a sightseeing tour from Washington that should not be missed, so book now for a cultural, historical and fun activity!
We had a great time on this tour. It was a great way to see Mt. Vernon. The boat trip was very scenic and you were handed a timed ticket to tour the house as soon as you exited the boat. The time on the ticket allowed you to tour the house first and then have plenty of time to tour the grounds and the museum. I have been to Mt. Vernon several times in the past and this is the best way to see it. It is a great value also, since you get the boat ride and the tour. I'm so glad that we decided to include this in our Washington DC itinerary.
excellent day trip! smooth boat ride down the Potomac, Washington's estate is amazing! dont miss it!
