About the Mount Vernon Estate

Mount Vernon was formerly the home of America's first President, George Washington, and was a vibrant plantation in the 18th century. It is now one of the nation's most visited historic sites, combining lush gardens, museum galleries, immersive programs and an authentically interpreted 18th century home. It is the site of George and Martha Washington's tombs, and houses numerous outbuildings like a distillery, Pioneer Farm, and blacksmith shop, memorials to the slaves that lived and worked at Mount Vernon, and beautiful landscapes and gardens.

The boat was comfortable and it was fun to use three decks--plenty of space to move around. The ship's crew was polite, friendly and took the time to converse with us. One person who was especially friendly was a guy (i don't recall his name) who used to be a fire fighter and came out of retirement to work for your business. He was helpful and nice to speak with. The length of the cruise/tour was perfect. I was impressed by the service provided by the snack bar personnel and the prices for food and beverages were reasonable. Thank you for providing my wife and i with a memorable cruise.

We had a great time on this trip. The boat ride was smooth and pleasant and mount vernon was lovely. The only improvement that comes to mind would be to , perhaps, add 30 mins. Or so to the time at mount vernon.
