Well worth the money. Enjoyed the whole trip and the guide was first class, knew his job.
This harbor tour was AWESOME! I really enjoyed it. We went in mid-October, and the weather was perfect--it was a lovely day. The tour itself is really cool! Some highlights for me were the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge, and the pier where the Titanic was supposed to dock. I HIGHLY recommend it. The best 90 minutes I've spent in a long time.
I really enjoyed this sightseeing cruise, though I've been to New York several times I haven't been on the water and it was really nice. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a nice running commentary that was conversational. We were very close to the Statue of Liberty, which was really cool.
This was a totally enjoyable tour, from the guide, to the boat and to the incredible scenery, it was everything it was advertised to be and more.
We saw so many things from the water that we wouldn't have been able to just walking around the city. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and professional. We would recommend this tour to everyone.
This was the most informative trip we have ever done! It was a fantastic tour and the guide was fabulous. Thank you!
Great little cruise to get some background on NYC. Got some great closeups of major bridges and "the beautiful green lady in the harbor!"
Excellent customer service, and an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable. A great education!
Fantastic value for money. The boat, crew and tour guide were all excellent. A very nice touch was the free bus to take you to a variety of destinations within the NYC district. I have already recommended this harbour cruise to friends and family.
Pier 78 from where you board the boat for the 90 minute trip is about a 30 minute walk from Times Square. There is a waiting area and toilet facilities. The trip was all that we had hoped for and more. We had a nice clear day and our guide was very informative. We took in the skyline of mid and lower Manhattan, the Financial District, Pier 17, Brooklyn Bridge and more. Time for on board refreshments as the boat makes its way to the Statue of Liberty. WOW. Plenty of time to take photos as the boat stops for at least 5 minutes quite near to the statue. A very worthwhile and enjoyable trip, highly recommend it. Good value for money.
Really enjoyed the trip; it was very informative. The staff were very nice and helpful; the photographers were brilliant. Highly recommend it.
We had booked for a day cruise but missed the boat and were told we could do the evening one instead, am so glad as it was absolutely fab. Looking at NY by night is brilliant.
Excellent cruise, and the guide was very good - definitely worth going for!
