Absolutely wonderful excursion. Starting with a friendly staff on the river boat cruise to the fantastic home, museum, pioneer farming and exhibitions going on that day. My only negative comment would be that I wish it lasted longer.

Very enjoyable day, and the cruise on the river is a great way of seeing something different.

Very enjoyable trip and just the right amount of time at Mt. Vernon. Parking is an issue, and snacks on board are a little pricey. But really relaxing, and a great way to get to M. Vernon and back.

The cruise was great. I couldn't always hear the narration because people were talking so loud but the parts I could hear was great info. The actual Mt. Vernon experience is one I won't forget. Didn't realize how much walking was involved up and down hills and paths. It was beautiful experience and one I would highly recommend if anyone asked.

This cruise was a great way to tour Mount Vernon, so relaxing going to and returning from Mount Vernon. Enjoyed having the points of interest pointed out to us on the way there. The 3 1/2 hours allowed at Mount Vernon was plenty and we had plenty of time to eat lunch while there. I would recommend this tour.

Four of us traveled to Mount Vernon and totally enjoyed the trip. I gave my voucher and was handed four sets of tickets that carried us through the day. The cruise was nice and peaceful we enjoyed the time and was able to talk and listen to the guide that pointed out places we were passing. Not nearly enough time to see all of Mt. Vernon but gives us a reason to go back.

Great time! Highly recommend.
Boat ride is enjoyable and educational the morning food choices could be expanded a bit. Mount Vernon is lovely to see, don't miss the educational center, we almost did thinking it was something for children It has a lot of historical pieces that are very interesting. Nice lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn as well.
