It was fine- just wish it were clear that it's mostly a view of the Washington monument
It was basically a quick boat trip to see the Washington monument- weather was clear- but I wish the tour had been more informative

Great service. Easy to use and great view of the monuments while enjoying the cool breeze.

We purchased the vouchers based on the published date being within our travel dates. We went down to the harbor at fairly great expense and hassle and hiked all over looking for your operation. Nothing. Spent considerable time and energy. Finally tried contacting the company only to find that you had moved your season start date. Super frustrating. Felt absolutely ripped off.

We got lucky because it wasn't crowded the day we went. I was worried about not being able to get on and waiting for ever. Read the bad reviews about the tour buses. We had great weather and it was a lazy cruise.

Seeing all the sites on the Potomac

The narration was excellent. The memorials were inspirational to see. The price was very reasonable.
The lack of enough stationary seating. People were grabbing the folding chairs from others. A crew member had to find 2 chairs for my companion and me. Also, there were 2 lines to enter causing a problem.

It was a comfortable ride, departed and returned at announced times. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Expected the boat would go closer to the monuments.

It was a leisurely sunset cruise down the Potomac and back.

The boat cruise was nice and relaxing.
The cherry blossoms were all out of bloom.

Conflicting info about closest metro. I went by website and ended up st Washington Marina, not Washington Harbor. Spent an hour getting to correct location.
