This was a pleasant cruise, relatively expensive, but there wasn't too much to see. The captain provided a nice talk about the few sights.

We were expecting a monuments cruise and got a trip to Georgetown with some monuments in the distance. Wasn't a total loss as it was park of a package but would take a pass if we could do it over.

We looked forward to the River Cruise on our trip to DC, planned it carefully into our stay in DC and was very disappointed. The boat was old, staff wasn't very friendly, the water was very brown and dirty. Just wasn't at all what we...More

what a trip up the river and seeing the attractions of Washington DC? Nice quick tour. Reasonable. The guided part is just enough information to understand what you are seeing.

I have been to DC many times; however, I had never taken an evening river cruise up the Potomac. I joined two friends and it was fabulous. Something everyone must do as you can see DC in a different light in the evening. Beware, do...More
