Fantastic day. Cruise boat was large and comfortable. Good toilet facilities and you could buy bagels and toast them for breakfast on boarding. Cruising the Potomac river was very interesting. Timed ticket for the house handed out on disembarking. Mount Vernon was a lovely place to spend a few hours All very well organized as expected from Viator tours. A must do.

This is a great way to visit Mt. Vernon. The cruise was lovely. Will definitely plan to do this again with out-of-town guests.

This was a wonderful tour. The cruise down the Potomac was relaxing as well as informational. There was ample time to tour Mount Vernon before returning to DC. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

The tour was great! The boat ride on the Spirit of Mount Vernon was fantastic and informative although a tad chilly and it was a great way to approach the estate. The grounds at Mount Vernon were spectacular, as was the tour within the house. My only complaint is that I wish we had more time to spend there, not being able to see the Distillery and feeling a bit rushed in the GORGEOUS museum that they have in the visitor's center / food court. Another regret is my choice in footwear all of the paths are gravel/dirt, so sneakers are a must!! I recommend this trip to all, but bring a jacket for the boat ride and do not wear sandals!!

Not a single complaint.....well, except the coffee on the boat was really undrinkable. Strangest off taste I have ever encountered--and I am not normally picky about my coffee. Other than that, everything was great. Everything about the trip was well organized and professional.
