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.
we changed our trip for a 2 hour one as it was a sunny day,the guide was brilliant he explained the skyline and sights along the way, this trip was very busy and i mean full so getting their early and queuing was worth it.You get to see the whole of the coastline and the iconic sights, would recommend booking before you go.
Great crusie unfortunately the weather (snow) was not the best to see the sights!!! great team on bopard and especially the gentleman who tells all about the sights!!
This was a really nice short tour to do since you cannot go on the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island due to Hurricane damage. Make sure you take a printed voucher, even if your confirmation says you can use an e-voucher. We had to run off to a little office to print the voucher to exchange for tickets, which was a pain and we were worried we would miss the boat by having to do this. Also, give yourself at least an hour to wait in line.
another great trip up the hudson river,nice clear day and calm waters brilliant.
Whether you have a long stay in New York or a super short one like we did, this is definitely a tour worth taking. Especially since we were only there for 2 days, taking the Liberty Cruise was a great way to get a glance of the skyline, New Jersey harbour, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The boat had large windows so we stayed inside to keep warm then went outside after a while to take pictures. If I go to NY during the summer I would definitely take a longer cruise to see the Brooklyn side as well. We didn't have time to have breakfast in the morning, but there were some light refreshments, muffins and bagels for sale, so that was good for us.
Excellent tour at fantastic price. One of the highlights of our trip to NYC!
Very informative. Great guides. Courteous and the next best thing to visiting the statue of liberty while it is closed from super storm Sandy.
Great way to see NY skyline, Statue of liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero area.
Sound quality and commentary very good.
Excellent! The staff was extremely helpful and the the tour guide was pitch perfect. A truly enjoyable journey around manhattan island.
