  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • it was a beautiful way to spend time with friends and family. lots of great information on the different boroughs, tunnels and bridges. We also got some excellent pictures of the Statute of Liberty.

  • Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We were told the cruise left on the hour, it actually left at 1/2 hour so we waited an hour and a half. Then when we finally boarded the cruise did not go to all the sights, we were totally bummed not to see Brooklyn Bridge. It said it was 90 minutes, we were done in 60.

  • While my memory of this experience does tip to the positive side, and while I did manage to learn a few things I didn't already know,I did not understand that at least 1/3 of the 90 minute boat ride included stopping to let people on and off the boat. I may have gleaned about 10 of the talk given in ENGLISH, the ad proudly stated, I simply could not hear what was said. Since it was a holiday week, many, many people, speaking many languages helped drown him out. At the end I realized that standing right under the loud speaker would have achieved better results.

  • A very enjoyable cruise, really fabulous seeing the sights of the skylines and bridges from the water. The tour guide was excellent giving a ton of history on each of the sights... A must do if you are visiting New York!

  • Loved our tour - saw exactly what we wanted!

  • Friendly crew and very nice experience, highly recomended

  • This tour was so worth it! The staff as a whole were very friendly but our guide Michael was simply AMAZING. So knowledgeable and funny. Definitely try to get a spot up top if you can handle the brisk cold wind.

  • This had a live person giving the detail on the trip. She was knowledgeable. I like it better than when you have a head set and have a recorded message.
