The views are like no other!

This was an awesome deal and the views were unbelievable! My husband and I did this tour as part of anniversary trip to DC. The tour was great. You got great views of all the monuments as well as some of the bridges. We also saw the president's helicopter come in for a landing! We plan to do this again on our next trip to DC!

choice of times to ride; comfortable seating and ride; enjoyed the history of the monuments

It was a delightful tour, with commentary about the sites. There were several different cruise tours, and our ship was by far nicer than the others we saw.

We really enjoyed it, but since the commentary was a recording, it did not take into account the surrounding noises, which caused us to miss some of the information.

The views of the landmarks and monuments from the river. We were able to see the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln, Jefferson, and Washington monuments. The narration of the sights by the staff was interesting and very informative.

We had a great lunch at a restaurant named Sequoia that was very convenient to the river cruise.

The Potomac River cruise was very nice and the "captain" was informative.
