Very Relaxing!

The National Monuments cruise was very relaxing. We thought we missed our boat because we didn’t factor in traffic. The ticketing clerk was very accommodating and gave us a later time. We got to move around inside the boat freely. There’s so much history in Washington DC. You can’t see it all in 2 days. I can’t wait to go back!

Not as expected

The so called tour is actually just a ferry to Alexandria and back. At Georgetown we got charged another $10 for unknown reason even if we prepaid the full cost via Viator. Naration is pre-recorded and the sound is very week so we could not her anything over the sounds of people talking. Would not recommend it.

The boat left on time and the crew was very helpful in explaining what we were seeing as we cruised. When we docked in Georgetown, my wife and I got off and cabbed to the National Mall. There we walked to the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King memorial and Franklin Roosevelt memorial. We enjoyed the reflecting pool and then returned to Georgetown for our cruise back to Alexandria.

We had a wonderful time! Although I read that others had a tough time hearing the narration, this was not the case. Were were able to hear the narration inside and outside of the vessel. Thank you for a wonderful day!

It was a very nice experience. The fact that you can take the cruise and spend the day in the other town then jump back on it when you're ready to return regardless of the time you signed up for makes it a perfect day outing. The reviews complaining about the noise of the engine just are not true. The staff is very nice and the recorded tape is very informational. I highly recommend this to everyone who visits this area!

Didn't really come very close to the monuments, and the canned narration was a little hard to hear over the engine noise. On the other hand, it was a very pleasant twilight cruise.

Nice way to spend a couple of hours. Captain and crew were extremely professional and polite. Well worth the price paid, an excellent value.

Sales people and cruise personnel were helpful and friendly. The historical narrative was good. It was great to see several monuments from the river. It was a sauna- like day in DC. And the return boat did not have an air conditioned cabin. Even at 6:30 PM it was sweltering.

Great trip down to Alexandria and nice to see the memorials from a different angle. The only thing I'd say is that once the boat got up to full speed, the noise of the engines completely drowned out the taped commentary, which was a shame.

The crew members made it fun. The recorded tape didn't make it very interactive.
