This was a super trip and thoroughly enjoyable. Our host/guide on the boat was very knowledgeable and also very entertaining. We had amazing views of the New York skyline. It was very well organised and most definitely worth the money.
My 15 year-old granddaughter and I took this tour on July 25th. It was an easy walk over from our hotel in the Times Square area. The 75 minute boat ride was just the perfect length of time, and the tour guide was very knowledgable. He pointed out all of the sites along the way, and his fact-filled narration was peppered with trivia facts and humor. I would definitely take this cruise tour again, and would highly recommend it to anyone short on time and wanting to see the Statue of Liberty and other points of interest.
I went with a group of youngster b/w the ages of 9-18 and not one mentioned they had a horrible, boring time on the cruise. I was elated and surprised at the same time. There was one scare where I could not find one of the children on the boat which is no fault of the boat or its staff. The youngster happened to be in the restroom and did not tell me where he was going before he went. The commentator was a whole lot of fun, making funny comments about the places of interest and even answered questions. I would book with you all again.
Good value for money, get some good views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Just about right length (approx 75 mins) nice and refreshing on a hot day.
It was fun. The boay left on time, the guide was nice, funny, knowledgable, and the best part is the the Viator tour price was way below ghe box office price!
Highly recommend! Booked trip day before excursion. Great staff from parking personnel to skipper.
Knowing we didn't have much time in NYC, we decided to follow trip advisors' advice and take this excursion. Great choice! Inexpensive, relaxing, brief and informative! Big savings when purchased thru this site. Thumbs up!!
Fantastic tour in windy conditions!! The tour guide was excellent keeping everyone informed with his dry sense of humour. Would recommend.
Loved the entire trip, weather was great, the tour guide was very funny and knew his history, and me n my girlfriend ended up being on T.V Talmundo. The view around us was amazing. Would definitely recommend this trip to my other friends n family :.)))))

Highly recommended and well worth the money to take some fantastic photos of the New York skyline. The gentleman conducting the tour was full of fantastic information and really interesting facts about the history of New York and its buildings. We had a rainy day when we went unfortunately but still had some amazing photo opportunities. My only disappointment was that I thought we would sail under the Brooklyn bridge but we only got close enough to take a couple of photos, but still a really worth while trip.
The tour was terrific. The guide was entertaining and knowledgable.
The guide on this tour was both very informed and knowledgeable but most entertaining too, making this trip of a lifetime even more memorable.
Like most New Yorkers we tend to ignore the obvious when it comes to sight seeing in our own town!
Last year we took the Circle Line around the island and learned an amazing amount about our home!
We pledged to go to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty next.
We did get to go see them both from the cruise boat (both still closed) and had a great time.
Once again learning more about our own turf.
Thank you - the weather was great too!
The cruise was fun. It was a beautiful day and it was a great way to see the sights.
we took the cruise on Easter morning. surprisingly, the boat was seated to capacity, although we arrived 25 minutes prior to departure. the cruise could not have been any better! it was informative and humorous together in one! the emcee was very knowledgeable and added clever bits of humor that kept us on our toes. For the money, I felt like we got an amazing deal. I would definitely do it again.
Excellent tour, including a very informative commentary. Covered off all we needed to know and it was great to get close to the Statue of Liberty. It's a shame that so many tourists insisted on standing up and therefore blocked the views for the rest of us.
Great way to see the New York skyline and also the short cruise is brilliant if you don't have much time. It is also the best way to get up close to the Statue of Liberty whilst it is closed. I loved it.
great tour!! I thought the captain was really knowledgeable as he narrated our trip. Lots of outside seating on the deck - it made it very comfortable and I'm glad I didn't have to fight for seats.
