Fab tour. Loved the boat trip down the Potomac. The grounds of Mount Vernon were lovely and it's an easy walk up to the house. Tour of the house was rather regimented - not able to go at your own pace, but then they did have to manage 100's of people. House much smaller than expected but well worth a visit.

Great way to get to Mt Vernon, rather than in a bus or car. Was very smooth sailing down Potomac, bit chilly in the morning so everyone stayed inside, but on return journey sun was out and we had no wind so made the most of top deck to view the mansion from afar. On arrival at Mt Vernon you are given timed entry to the mansion - had a quick stop at Washington's tomb then made way to line for mansion. Whilst it looked like along wait, it was well organised to get people moved through the mansion - had enough time to take in every room in the mansion. Still had plenty of time to see everything on the estate, stop for lunch and some souvenirs and then back to dock for return cruise home.

This was our second visit to Mount Vernon which is a wonderful place. Our previous visit was by car but going there by river boat as they did in George Washington's time made it even better. Excellent day out and excellent value.

It was an Excelent tour , the ride down the Potomac was a really nice way to approach Mt Vernon - the house and grounds were lovely and not too crowded.

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.
