Great cruise. Went with some out of town visitors and really enjoyed it more than I had expected to. Excellent tour guide.

Such a beautiful tour of the Potomac. It's a different way to enjoy and see the monuments. Great pictures with the family - Enjoy a relaxing tour of the Potomac especially during sunset.
