Wonderful tour. All the staff was very helpful.
The cruise on the Potomac was smooth and very nice, loved the comments by the crew on what we were passing. the only thing I think it needs is a later departure from Mount Vernon. maybe a 5pm departure, there is so much to see and do there, it is hard to fit it all in. but we hustled and saw almost everything, lucky it was a slow day there.
