What people are saying about Alexandria, Virginia

It was a very awesome experience and I would strongly recommend to anyone that wants to take a break from touring the other sites! I took a Lyft from my hotel and had extra time to spare before check in! The boat training was very short and then we were on our way! I thought I would get soaked but I didn’t thank goodness! Bring sandals or swim shoes and there’s a a little storage compartment on the boat itself to keep your personal effects dry! Instructors were awesome!

Had a lot of fun. Driving was easy. Got splashed occasionally which was a lifesaver because it was crazy hot out. The water was not even slightly chilly in mid July. Traveled farther than expected. Some huge estates along the river and the guide stopped to tell us about a couple of historic sites along the way.

This was a truly worthwhile experience for my slightly older, less mobile visitors who wanted to see all they possibly could of the city. Every step of the process was a turnkey operation and provided a relaxing and unique point-of-view to even the most seasoned D.C. explorers.

Good experience the boat was on time In mount vernon people were very helpful and understanding to our time Fram the guide were very knowledgeable and answered all our concerns

Very nice experience to do, across the Potomac River you will be able to see many monuments of DC.
