Enjoyed the cruise to Mt. Vernon - nice to get out on the water especially on a very hot day in DC. Great cruise and lots to see at Mt. Vernon. Highly recommend!
Mount Vernon was a treat! The boat was large with a lot of table and chairs. It and #39;s not a luxury boat, so don and #39;t expect anything fancy to lounge around in for the 1 hour and 30 minute ride. The snack bar is pretty basic. Mount Vernonis beautiful! The mansion had great guides! The mountain was fun too!
The boat ride was beautiful and the length of the trip was the right amount of time. Definitely eat at the restaraubt and skip the fast food. You and #39;ll pay the same amount and eat better food.
What a great tour. I would and #39;ve liked having a guided tour included in the ticket price, but all in all the tour was really good.
This was a wonderful trip/cruise.
Beautiful scenery and the time frame was perfect to see everything and tour everything!
I would highly recommend this trip
This is a great piece of property and history. Made me want to live there. The new museum is very nice. The larger than life size painting of The president and company on the back porch was impressive.
It was amazing how smart and innovative the President Washington was.

The boat ride was fun and scenic. Mount Vernon is amazing. The house and grounds are very well preserved and there are actors moving around talking about life in Washington's time. There is an xlnt interactive museum of Washington's life and times that.
What a great way to get to Mount Vernon..by boat!! It was a beautiful day so we were spoiled. There was a small hike up to the house but a very well maintained dirt road. My 11 year old boy 7 girl both loved the house but were thrilled with the outside buildings and grounds. What a view Washington had from his back porch!
Had a great cruise up the Potomac even though the weather was damp. Mt. Vernon was a fantastic place to visit. Great museum, great history. Would recommend taking this vs. driving.
We loved the boat trip done the Potomac though felt we should have been told we needed ID to collect the tickets. Mount Vernon is a wonderful place and the staff and guides are so engaging we thought this was good value as there is a lot to see.
La visite de la maison de Georges Washington à Mount Vernon est l'occasion de faire une petite croisière sur le Potomac qui borde Washington DC. La maison du maître est très richement décorée contrastant avec les petites maison des employés et esclaves de Washington. C'est un lieu magnifique avec une vue splendide sur le Potomac. La croisière est également très instructive autant que belle.
This was a very nice trip well worth the ticket price. Mount Vernon is a beautiful place to visit. We went on Columbus Day so we were not able see everything of interest during the 3 1/2 hr stay. Staff said non holiday visits are less crowded. The museum is unbelieveable, right down to Washington's dentures. The river is calm with scenic views. Highly recommended.
The day cruise down to Mount Vernon was very well done. Just enough info from the crew on what we were passing but still time to carry on a conversation with fellow passengers on the way down and way back to DC. The tour of Mt Vernon itself was good as well. You were given the right amount of time to tour the buildings as well as get a snack if you wanted as well. Got back to the dock in plenty of time for the relaxing sail back to DC. Weather was great for that time of year as well.
Absolutely wonderful excursion. Starting with a friendly staff on the river boat cruise to the fantastic home, museum, pioneer farming and exhibitions going on that day. My only negative comment would be that I wish it lasted longer.
Very enjoyable day, and the cruise on the river is a great way of seeing something different.
