We had a great experience. After the boat pulled away from the dock we were able to upgrade to the limited seating section. When I tried to make reservations the upgraded tour seating was sold out but I was told on the boat that while it is sold out, it is not for a certain day, so the seats might actually be available. We upgraded and had a great experience. We've been to New York many times and this is something we always meant to do. We were glad we did it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

timing was perfect for the cruise just as the sunset and then returns with the city lit up in the dark. Was great they allow you to stand at the front of the boat - you can get some amazing photographs. Highly recommend. Guide who gave commentary over the microphone was great and very informative. Boat also has a great bar for drinks once you've finished taking photos!

The evening cruise was great. Our Tour Guide was super.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The tour as promised gives one of the best glimpses of the skyline of the Big Apple and the best thing about it is its timing. This allows you to see the sun setting on the river and that is something to be seen to be believed. The slowly glimmering night sky and the statue of liberty at sunset was unforgettable. As the vessel passes below the bridges one cant but admire the greatness of the architect of this truly great city.A very well planned and unmissable cruise.The earlier you reach the pier the better seat you get and best photos. However, the boat is so designed that others too will not miss out anything. Food and drinks are available for purchase. The commentary is good but should be bit louder to be more audible to all amidst the chatter of all the tourists. Fantastic experience nonetheless.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great way to see the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the Brooklyn Bridge. Fun boat ride, knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. Grab a beer and enjoy.
