Our tour guide had grown up in the area and was very knowledgeable about the Georgetown area. I highly recommend this tour!

Ryan was a fabulous tour guide! The walking part in Georgetown was beautiful and informative. The only bad thing was that the details said the tour started at two, but the boat doesn’t actually board until 2:30, so we waited a really long time at the dock. I would maybe say be early to check in by 2:15. But by saying the tour started at two, we arrived at 1:30. I also think the boat ride was closer to thirty minutes than the advertised forty five, but it was still nice. The tour does stop in Georgetown; it does not return you to DC. This was nice, though, because you can eat dinner and walk around Georgetown after the tour. Again, great guide and great highlights of Georgetown. Would recommend!

Great way to get a bit of history of Georgetown and at the same time get a trip down the river! Think about spending a bit of time at a the wharf area before you depart as it’s worth a look around or to get a bite (perhaps at the fresh seafood spot) before boarding and then when you are done with the tour come to the wharf in Georgetown for lunch, dinner, an apple or a drink before heading , such a beautiful spot with views down the river! Our guide LizaBanks was great giving us a great overview of Georgetown and answering questions after the tour was over!

The information given during the walk was very good. I did not like the boat part though due to the overlapping between the tour guide and the boat.
