A very pleasant way to see this historic house museum. As we were staying in DC and could use the Metro to get to the ship it meant a more relaxing trip without the use of the car.

The overall experience was great. Getting to Mt. Vernon by boat was a good choice because you get 2 fun things to do in one! The boat was very roomy and comfortable. The only complaint I have is that my granddaughter wanted a smoothy and it cost $6! .....a little pricey for me. But the trip was great and we had plenty of time to see what we wanted to see. Don't miss the oxen!

Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion to walk in the footsteps of George Washington.
The cruise up the Potomac River was breezy and bracing at times but I wouldn't have missed sitting up the top for anything.

I've toured Mount Vernon many times in the past, but what an incredible way to approach the estate....by water!! The boat trip was such a relaxing part of the vacation....it was nice to slow down for awhile and enjoy the beauty of the Potomac!!

What a great way to see Mount Vernon. The boat ride was fantastic and they give you enough time to see the exhibits along with the view of the house, before you return to DC. Highly recommend it.

Lovely trip the estate is very interesting - though the boat trip is a little long.

Was worried about the boat ride because D gets seasick but it was a smooth ride there and back. They also give you plenty of time to roam around the grounds
