Very comprehensive way to see the island of Manhattan

This was a must do...very interesting and the tour guide gave so many interesting facts that you would never have found on your own. Saw sights and places you would not have seen or found on your own walking tour. It was a refreshing break from walking. You could also take your lunch on board.

A really enjoyable boat trip and a very comprehensive commentary given by Andy. Infact Andy spoke for 2 hours 45mins out of the 3 hour trip ! He gave us an entertaining and very informative commentary and I learnt so much about New York from him. It was a great way to see many of the sights of New York without having to endure the hustle and bustle of NYC ! Excellent 3 hours
