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.

Well organized. Instructions where to pick up tickets, where to get in line, and when to board were spot on. The tour itself was the right length, right amount of commentary, and informational. I would recommend this to anyone who visits.

Get there early for a good seat or position on the ship. We enjoyed this trip immensely. Our family ranged from seniors to teens and everyone agreed. The tour narrator was great. Packed with interesting facts about NYC. Lots to see both in daylight and as all the lights came on. Highly recommend this for families with kids old enough to appreciate the sights.
