Tour description provided by Viator

Delight in the majesty of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC from this boat cruise on the Potomac. Admire top DC attractions including the Lincoln Memorial, the dome of Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument surrounded by an abundance of delicate pink and white cherry blossoms. With morning and afternoon departures on weekdays, this relaxing short cruise is easy to fit into even a jam-packed itinerary.

Board your boat, Miss Mallory or the Matthew Hayes, at Georgetown's Washington Harbour, for your morning or afternoon cruise. As you travel along Washington DC's Potomac River, keep your camera ready for photos of the city's famous cherry blossom trees, a gift from Tokyo. These gorgeous trees bloom for just two weeks each spring, and there's no better way to admire them than from the comfort of your riverboat. Listen to recorded narration about Washington DC's history and landmarks as you pass major sights such as the Lincoln Memorial, the dome of Jefferson Memorial, the dome of the US Capitol, Washington Monument, the Embassy of Sweden, Arlington National Cemetery and Arlington Memorial Bridge.

Feel free to move around your boat to fully appreciate the gorgeous views. Beverages are available on board (own expense). Your nearly 1-hour cherry blossom cruise along the Potomac concludes back at Washington Harbour in Georgetown.

Note: Your tour may be on the Miss Mallory or the Matthew Hayes pending weather and boat conditions
