Advertising this as a cherry blossom cruise is pretty disingenuous. It may take place during the time frame of the cherry blossom festival, however, you get no where near the cherry blossoms, which are primarily located around the Tidal Basin. It...continued

Although the weather was still a little bit on the cool side and there was only one Cherry Blossom tree in bloom across the channel, we had a perfectly delightful afternoon cruise! The Patriot II crew obviously works several of these cruises each...continued

I thought this would be a tour that went by the Kennedy Center, Georgetown, etc., but it wasn't. We got some excellent views of the back of National Airport and Haines Point, and they had nice commentary on what we could see, but the monuments and...continued

My friends and I had a ball. Of course, on this day, although beautiful spring day--no Cherry Blossoms, due to the doom & gloom of winter still in the air. Anyway, the tour guide was right on time--I wasn't expecting: helped me learn more about...continued

No cherry blossoms! The name of the tour was misleading.

The narration was great (funny and informative) and the staff very professional and efficient. but we did not fully realize that this cruise DOES NOT COVER THE TIDAL BASIN. We went up and down the potomac and anacostia rivers but the "harbor"...continued

The cruise was good and the price was right but the boat was very crowded. The announcements/guide information could not be heard at all.

Nice hour long cruise on the water. Perfect day for it -- and the cherry blossoms were at their peak! Nice, polite crew. Clean boat. Captain greeted passengers -- nice touch.

It was great -- just too bad that the Cherry Blossoms were not yet at their peak (no one's fault but Mother Nature).

The crew was friendly. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon with family and/or friends. You do not have to deal with the crowd, walking people to people trying to see the blossoms.

You will not regret the trip.

You will not regret the cruise. It is the best way to see the blossoms. You will not have to deal with the crowd and walking into people.

I bought these tickets from Goldstar for a visiting delegation from Brazil. They loved the cruise, though the blossoms weren't really out quite yet. BUT there was a big problem at the ticket booth, since the person with the group didn't have the...continued

I had a great time and so did my guest. I hope to go again later in the season. The people were friendly and site seeing was fun and informative. The metro was the best way for me to get there..... No traffic or parking worries.

The weather was perfect and the cherry blossoms were at their peak so it would have been hard to improve on the hour-long cruise! A very pleasant experience for my wife and me and our out-of-town guests.

Cherry blossom cruise -- but they don't allow a rain check if the cherry blossoms are not out yet. We booked two weeks in advance but no blossoms so the cruise was simply "OK" (you get to see some of lower Washington).

This was the only opportunity we had to show our visitor the cherry blossoms since the traffic was too heavy to park near the tidal basin. We really enjoyed the cruise, and the crew was super nice.

Enjoyable day with a friendly crew. The captain was very knowledgeable of the attractions along the river. Great views and photo opportunities throughout the whole ride.
