A nice ride on the river.

Loved seeing the highlights of DC from the water. No problems at all with the tickets.

Seeing the scenic banks of Potomac river

There was a Korean speaking group on our boat tour that was allowed to board first which I understand is permissible per company's policy. While it is fine (although the group took the best seats), what is not fine is their use of their interpreters who were loud to the point of our inability to hear the narrative. So, much of the explanation was lost on us.

The vantage point the river gave to the monuments

The crew were very helpful and friendly.

Jul 13, 2014 Joanne VA, United States

The embarking location was a bit confusing. You should clearly state that the closest Metro station is Foggy Bottom and then it is a walk to Georgetown Harbor. Also, this is not a fancy boat, but adequate for the tour.
