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.
