Review of: Alexandria to Georgetown Water Taxi

The taxi left on time, was clean and the crew was so helpful and friendly. They even took time to talk to our son who is 6. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Review of: Water Taxi from Wharf or Old Town Alexandria
A very enjoyable trip. Great service at a fair price. The staff was super nice. We accidentally dropped a phone in the boat and they carried it to the ticket office at Alexandria, so we could recover it. We are so grateful to everyone who was involved in that.
