We had a wonderful cruise on the Potomac. It was worth the money. However you really don't see many memorials from the water. Other than that it was great.

This tour was relaxing after a long day of walking and I liked that, but, it wasn't what I thought it would be. It was a clear, cool late March evening but we really couldn't see many monuments from the river. We saw the large ones like Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument and they were beautiful but I would recommend on land night monument tours - I think you can see the lights much better on land. Viator's description said stunning reflective views of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial and many other landmark locations is misleading. You really could only see the very large things. I would recommend this river tour if you want a nice, relaxing cruise on the river but don't expect to see much. Additionally, someone narrated and pointed out some of the things along the river but he could have done more of that.

One Star is for Seats..ohh wait a minute you need to be early in queue to have a sofa seat else on chairs or at top in open will not recommend in cold weather. It was worst of the worst..No proper Monuments sightseeing,no Guide.no proper info.Just a bar on the cruise which too is in dark side. If you just want to drink and lay low..this is good.For kids its worst..nothing is there for their fun. Entering and Existing Boat arrangement too is unsafe..no proper Stairs etc. I will not suggest to people who travelling from other states and want to put their valuable time in this tours...

It wasn't bad, just okay. This was a tour that I went on with 5 friends. It was clean and the people were nice. Maybe I missed in the description that this moonlight cruise wasn't narrated. Background on what we were seeing would have been nice. Also, the music was soft jazz, none of us were fans.
