    Jeremiah took us to several Georgetown eateries where we were amply supplied with interesting foods. This was our first visit to DC so we’ve been learning a lot about its history. Our group of 8 was congenial and near the end we compared our favorite bites. A little more information about the architecture and landmarks would have been appreciated though.

    We took the scenic lunch tour as a couple in August and although I this boat trip was definitely not a "tour" it was a lot of fun. There was no narration describing the sights but you did get to see a lot of DC from the water. The boat had two outdoor decks where you could enjoy the views, the DJ did his best to try to encourage people to have a good time (I do agree with another reviewer that the music leaned to heavily towards rap, though, and the dance area was crowded), and while the drinks were expensive they weren't ridiculously so. The lunch buffet felt a bit rushed due to the number of people but each dish was labelled and the food wasn't bad - it was buffet food and not meant to be fine dining. Think pasta, chicken, salmon, salad, mixed vegetables and a large selection of desserts.

    The best part of the trip by far was our server, who was a delightful young woman named Destiny (for the record all of the wait staff were very pleasant). She was super friendly, helpful, and just a joy to be around. We would return in a heartbeat to see her!

    I'd recommend this cruise as long as your expectations aren't sky-high; that is, don't think you're getting a five star dinner and a narrated guide to the city. It's a basic boat ride with dancing and a buffet but it was still a really good time. We'd definitely book another trip!

    Nice 3.5 hour walking and eating tour of Georgetown. The guide, Robert, provided entertaining and informative tour- lots or good history and stories! There were 4 stops to dine- Italian, Spanish, Modern Mexican, and macarons. Overall restaurant choices served above-average food. The marinara sauce at Flavio's was delicious, and we had the largest gnocchi ever. Spanish tapas were enjoyable, especially the dates wrapped in ham and the potatoes brava. I was lucky enough to get a cherry blossom macaron, definitely a treat. Robert provided us with lots of other restaurant recommendations. Worth doing if you don't know much about Georgetown.

    Our guide touched on both the history of Georgetown (evolution of its demographics and architecture, notable figures) and the background of the one cafe and three restaurants we visited.

    Food portions were generous. Pacing was good. Our guide was affable.

    As far as I can tell, this isn't a tour for history buffs, but it's a great introduction to Georgetown.

    Ultimately, it was also a feel-good activity as BlueFern donates a few meals for each guest ticket sold.

    Afterward, we were ready to enter serious food-comas (sleep helps solidify all the history we learned, right?).

    An awesome experience. Great food, DJ was great but a little loud inside. Spent most of the time outside enjoying the views. Wait staff was excellent

    My family celebrated a birthday on the Spirit of Washington. We enjoyed the food and had a good time. The buffet was a little disorganized, for example, one side was out of plates and empty chafing dishes were not quickly replenished. The service staff seemed to be working really hard, so perhaps this was not the norm. Shea, who is part of the security team, was extremely helpful with retrieving a wheelchair and escorting an elderly family member to the entrance gate.

    I am from DC and this tour allowed me to see things I never knew about. Erin was fun and informative, highlighting the things that makes Georgetown special. There was also interesting people in my tour group. It was worth every penny. 5 stars!!

    I really enjoyed this tour- everything was pretty well curated. The only thing that I think could be better is if we were able to place our orders for each place a little earlier. Because of the limited time at each place, it sometimes took a while to place our order, wait for the food, and then eat. Otherwise, each location had very yummy food and the experience was pretty seamless. The tour guide told a couple of off color jokes, but it wasn’t enough to ruin our time.

    Be sure to find out whether the cruise you're booking is going north or south. Unfortunately this is not easily disclosed by the company. The south cruise is a bit of a bore -- only the north cruise passes the interesting visuals like the monuments, etc. The ship's crew and staff are welcoming and pleasant. The menu is prepared well and the meal is very good. The price of the cruise varies quite a bit according to the date you select, making some cruises extremely overpriced.
