This was my 2nd time on this cruise. I recommended it to 6 of my favorite people and they all enjoyed it. The commentary was very informative and the views were beautiful. We were up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty, all the bridges, and many other landmarks. I think this is a must when visiting NYC.

This tour was our favorite thing we did while in NY. I have now done it twice and it is the one thing you will not want to miss while in New York City. The gentleman who narrated the tour was fantastic! We learned so much and it was done in an amazingly interesting way. It was really one of the best tours we have ever been on.
