The boat ride was beautiful. We did not buy the buffet, but it looked very good. We wish we had had a couple of hours more on the grounds--boat ride was 1.5 delightful miles each way, which left less time to see sights away from mansion than we'd have liked. Lovely. (We are 80 and 95 years old.)

Brilliant, unfortunate that our trip coincided with school groups. I'm an ex school worker so used to kids, but sadly these were loud and rude, slightly ruined the trip...overall when not surrounded by the hundreds of school groups we had a great time .

This was nice...getting out of DC and seeing Mount Vernon was well worth the price of this tour. Mount Vernon in itself felt like a vacation from DC, not that I don't like DC, it's just that sometimes you need to mix things up during your trip. The reasonably priced (all you can eat) breakfast on the boat really saved my day, since I did not have anytime to eat breakfast prior to leaving my hotel. Thank you!!!

Had a wonderful time with family of six on visiting Mount Vernon and seeing how George Washington lived. We enjoyed a very good breakfast on the boat ride for DC Mt V.

This was a fun way to visit Mt Vernon. The Spirit of Mt Vernon was very comfortable and offered a wide variety of beverages and food. We enjoyed learning about the sites along the way and had plenty of time to explore Mt Vernon.

In my humble opinion, this is a must see/do while visiting Washington D.C. Not only was it a fantastic get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it was educational and informational. The trip to and from D.C. was chill, with its own unique perks, but the Mount Vernon grounds is the true gem. It is utterly GORGEOUS. Coming from the West coast, we don't ever get to see green like Virginia green. And the history of the very first President is definitely interesting in it's own.

Captain Andrew and his crew were wonderful. They made the trip to and from Mount Vernon a pleasure! I recommend sitting inside if you can so it will be easier to hear the commentary. Mount Vernon was beautiful and a nice addition to our DC visit.

really worthwhile trip - great way to get to see some of the countryside outside of the city of Washington. Mount Vernon itself is a very interesting place to visit. Everything about this experience was easy and the staff were terrific.

This was a most enjoyable tour! I took it with my 2 grand children 10 and 12 and even they had a great time. It's a beautiful ride along the Potomac River with a a beautiful view along the way. Points of interest are being pointed out along the way. Once at Mt. Vernon we enjoyed the walk through the gardens, visited the house. We went in the summer on a very hot day. So if you go on a hot day, drink plenty of water. Food and refreshments are available for purchase on the boat.

This was my second time for this excursion and it continues to be one of my favorite trips while in DC. A leisurely cruise to Mt. Vernon, then about 3 hours to explore the estate and have lunch the turkey pot pie is very good.
We learned a bit about what it takes to run an estate of this size back in the 1700s such as spinning thread and weaving fabric to make clothing. We spoke with a young man in the character of General Washington's personal valet who told us of the day to day necessities he provided to his master.
The tour of the main house is very informative but we skipped it this time to allow more time to meander the grounds and gardens. A beautiful day all around and a lazy trip back to our starting point at the pier. If you have the time, this is a wonderful way to spend the day!

Arguably my favorite part of the trip to Washington DC. Taking a nice boat ride down the Potomac, you gaze upon perhaps the most famous residence in the country up on the hill. It was amazing to see how even the rich and famous of that time may be considered poor in our time

So nice to sit back and watch the beauty of the Potomac River glide past. Our time at Mt. Vernon was sufficient to see the property and thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the history of the area depicted there.

This tour was AMAZING! I can't wait to go back with my fiance! I went with a good friend and we loved walking through the gardens, touring the house and paying our respects to Martha and George Washington along with paying our respects at the slave memorial. When you were there you could feel the history and it gave us goosebumps. This was our favorite purchase that we made for the first part of our trip!
