Buy at the dock

We purchased a “sunset tour” from 4:45 to 8:30 Pm, when we got to the dock, we were directed to the ticket center who informed us that Viator is just like a gift card for the tour, they were closing early and we could go on the one hour tour instead.. so disappointed

The information about all things that take place on the tour is a little misleading. The boat staff was great! Had a little trouble figuring out tickets.

I've requested a refund. Not sure if this is a fraud or what but there was no information in their system of my paid conformation. Please refund my money.

No flexibility

I was disappointed that they did not offer a little flexibility for me to change my taxi return to a later time. I was also disappointed because I was told this would be a narrated ride and there was no narration.

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.
