Family of 4 going on the evening monuments tour. Do not waste your time or money. Boring, not much to see, not narrated. Difficult to get any good night monument photos. The only nice thing was finding the dock area that had few restaurants and...More

This was a fun way to see a different viewpoint of the memorials--from The water. They have a piped in voice over that gives some Historical and viewpoints. The boat leaves from the Washington Harbor in Georgetown.

Let me first point out that we cannot speak for the cruise itself. It seemed like a reasonable price, no matter if it is spectacular or not. What we will say is that, IF YOU BUY THE TICKETS YOU BETTER MAKE IT THERE. No joke,...More

Although this is billed as a "moonlight" cruise - it actually leaves dock at 8PM for a one hour cruise. This cruise books up fast. We enjoyed a wine and cocktail beverage as we sailed along to see some of the popular DC monuments illuminated...More
