Wonderful time on the water and an excellent day at Mt Vernon. Of course, the weather was beautiful and not too cold. The crowds even on a fall weekday are astonishing, but the mansion staff know how to get a large number of guests through the building without feeling rushed, and the museum exhibits are very fine and would interest both children and adults. Food service might be a little less than stellar compared to many of the fine museum cafes in Washington, but perfectly adequate. Not to be missed.

Really enjoyed this trip. Boat ride was fun there and back. On the initial leg of the trip the captain was very informative about the sights along the way and the return leg was very quiet. There were some drinks and snacks available for purchase on the boat. Mt. Vernon itself was a great experience. Everything was very well preserved and presented. Initially, I thought 3 hours was too long to be there, but certainly could have used another hour or so to take the shuttle to the distillery and grist mill. This is a great trip for children and adults alike and was a real value.

This visit was extremely well organised. The house is fascinating, and we learnt a lot. The cruise was very comfortable and relaxing, and the whole experience made a lovely day out.
