What You Can Expect
If you get hungry, the estate hosts a range of restaurants (own expense). Then enjoy the leisurely boat ride back to DC.
Four of us traveled to Mount Vernon and totally enjoyed the trip. I gave my voucher and was handed four sets of tickets that carried us through the day. The cruise was nice and peaceful we enjoyed the time and was able to talk and listen to the guide that pointed out places we were passing. Not nearly enough time to see all of Mt. Vernon but gives us a reason to go back.
Great time! Highly recommend.
Boat ride is enjoyable and educational the morning food choices could be expanded a bit. Mount Vernon is lovely to see, don't miss the educational center, we almost did thinking it was something for children It has a lot of historical pieces that are very interesting. Nice lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn as well.
It was a wonderful cruise down the Potomac. We had a great time at Mt Vernon.
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 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
