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.
Excellent value, informative commentry, plenty of room, friendly / smiling crew.
easy to find BUT directions not as clear as could be for a stranger to new York
excellent trip. lovely cruise past Ellis Island, statue of Liberty etc,on the way out, and on the return journey past all the buildings of the financial district, and the site of the World Trade Centre . the guide was really good, and gave us so much information. he explained about the evacuation from Battery Park on 9/11, and the part played by all the cruise ships, also he told us i interesting detail about the plane which landed on the Hudson River a few years ago, and the rescue of the passengers.we booked this tour
before we left home,and it was one of our highlights of our trip.-only regret is that we didn't go to Ellis Island itself. -maybe next time!
What a wonderful way to start the first day in New York for my 2 sisters and I !! The sites were breathtaking and we loved the guide's knowledge and humor! Viator was able to change the time of our cruise because we arrived so early ! Would not hesitate to book again with Viator! THANK YOU!
What a great cruise! Our tour guide, Dave, was so informative and funny. It's a great way to see the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan from the water, if you dont have much time in NYC. The ticket agent was nice to let us print our vouchers in the office since we couldn't before showing up.
