The only thing I would suggest is to stay a little longer at Mount Vernon. The time allotted for the tour and trying to get through the museum and grounds is not near enough time.
I really liked this tour. It was a very nice, quiet cruise down the Potomac. Mount Vernon is beautiful and very will kept. The out buildings give you a real appreciation of the work demanded by a large plantation in the late 18th century. There are nice gift shops and an eatery for your family. I highly recommend this tour.
Very enjoyable and relaxing tour. Mount Vernon is a lovely area to visit and the house restoration has been carried out beautifully.
The cruise was relaxing and a nice way to see the surrounding area. This tour was well worth our time. We all enjoyed it. Could have use a little more time at Mount Vernon.
This is a very relaxing way to see Mt.Vernon if you are staying in DC. No need to deal with the traffic. Cruise was very relaxing and the narration down the Potomac points out all the sights along the way. The 3 hours at Mt. Vernon is an adequate amount of time to spend at the site. Highly recommend.
Enjoyed the tour even though it poured down with rain for most of the trip.
The boat trip to Mt Vernon was very relaxing and liked seeing the countryside. Once we arrived we were on our to see the grounds and we were given a ticket to tour his home. I like being able to do this at your own pace. Had lunch at the food court which was very good. Good trip and I would recommend.
Wonderful cruise down the Potomac and then 3 hours at Mount Vernon. We thought 3 hours would be a lot, but there's a lot to see there! Still, we loved being on the boat and cruising there and back. Would recommend this to all!
This is a very relaxing way to see Mt Vernon. The boat ride took one and a half hours each way. It was a peaceful and beautiful cruise. We had three hours to spend at Mt Vernon. We were able to see everything. We ate lunch in the food court and even had time to sit in the back of the house overlooking the river. What a beautiful view!! Definitely recommend this trip!!
Everything you expect from an Historical day.
Even though I was outside the pickup range, it was easy to get to the Dockside using the Metro......
Interesting, well planned, enjoyable, accurate step back in time.
The grounds were beautiful and well maintained I would go again.
Relaxing and informative cruise on the Potomac. Plenty of time to explore the grounds and tour the house and other buildings. Best gift shop in the DC area.
Everything was great on this day trip to Mt. Vernon. The crew on the boat was the best and visiting the home of George Washington was such a great day.
Great Day out, comfortable ship. Brilliant destination in Mount Vernon. Highly recommend you fit this into your trip
