This cruise was the highlight of our trip! Because Manhattan is so big, you cannot possibly see it all, but with this cruise you see everything! We got close ups of the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Washington bridges as well as the Statue of Liberty! The commentary was also great as it was told by locals, who advised to take the Staten Island ferry when we get a chance because it's free! Good to know! Pro tip: There is food, drinks, and gelato available for purchase from the dock where the cruise departs from so if you get there early you can have a bite to eat before you depart! Also city bus stops go to the port and are free!

It was brilliant! Before we booked this tour we checked sunset times, so that we had some day light and then finished the cruise in the dark, so we had the best of both worlds. We were also very lucky with the weather, especially for the end of October, it was warm and clear. I would highly recommend.

The tour guide was amazing.

His knowledge of the city was expansive and he made me cry with his telling of the miracle on the hudson reminding everyone to give a thought to loved ones.

It is awesome. It is worth the money. Just one thing which i wish could be the cruise should have more open area for seating and standing as it is more to watching outside.
everyone who wants to see NYC should see it .
