This boat tour is really thorough and informative. The information provided by the guide is good as you take a boat round the lower half of the island. You get some great views and some great picture opportunities. However having booked this I then spotted a three hour tour which takes you round the whole island of Manhattan. The second part of this tour is coming back the way you went around so my advice would be definitely book a tour, but try the three hour tour instead.

This was fun. There was a great deal I learned about the history of New York City and they did get exceptionally close to the Statue of Liberty. As Liberty Island was still closed due to Hurricane Sandy this was excellent. Our tour guide, Chris, was super. This was well worth the money.

Very good way to see the New York City skyline. The 4 o'clock cruise is perfect because you get to see Statue of Liberty during the day and the city at night. The cruise goes close enough to the Statue of Liberty that you don't need to make a separate trip.

We had a very nice time. The boat was comfortable, and the tour guide was knowledgeable. We stepped outside as we approached the Statue of Liberty, and it was just incredible! Thank you!

great cruise except people all flocked to the sides at all the landmarks and didn't sit down. i don't like pushing people to take a photo

Make sure you get a seat out on the deck if its not raining otherwise you are stuck inside and then you might as well watch it on TV !
