Great being able to use water taxi to visit different places and it ran until 6 in evening. Not much of a queue on day of visit and easy to use voucher to access. Memorial very moving. Machines there to use to type in names of those that died and told you where their name was on memorial, which we used. Obviously lots of security but were not rushed.
The trip was excellent. Well worth the money we paid. The guide was very informative and amusing.
Great trip. So easy to see what we wanted to see ie: 911, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island . The best surprise was at the end of the day as wew were getting off the boat a man from your company said" FREE BUS to Time Square part of your ticket price" (guess we didn't read the fine print). This bus took us to Time Square where we had dinner reservation for 5PM. Beats walking like we did to get to the boat from Time Square.
We gave all the information and phamlets we had to our bus tour director as we went to NYC from Rhode Island by bus.. She said the next trip she does she will offer this Hop On Hop Off information to anyone who would like to see the city and sites this way.. Thanks again
I thought this tour was fantastic! It was pouring rain the morning of our tour and we were supposed to be there to board the boat at 9:00 am. In spite of our early start it was almost impossible to get a cab that morning, which made us arrive at the pier after 9:00. I didn't even have to ask if we could change the time. When I told the girl at the ticket booth we didn't make our departure time she just said, "Oh, we can change it to 10:00."
By the time our boat departed, the rain had stopped. There was still intermittent rain during the day but not enough to ruin the trip. The sun even shone a few times! Seeing the city from the water gives a different perspective of things and taking the boat tour gave us time to see some of the things we really wanted to see in NYC without the hassle of taking a cab....and at a much cheaper rate!
Everyone assoicated with the tour was very nice, even taking pictures for people on the tour. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting NYC.
We throughly enjoyed this cruise. We used it all day long. The 9-11 Memorial tour was excellent. We highly recommend this cruise water taxi.
Excellent. Catamaran was comfortable - guide was excellent and informative. Kept to their schedule. Dropped off close to 9/11 memorial which was a sobering experience. Offered plenty photo opportunities to see the Statue of Liberty. Incredible value for money and an excellent way of seeing New York.
My sister came to visit at such short notice and this was the quickest way to show her the highlights of New York City which was affordable, efficient and practical.
Well worth going to see.would like to go back in about 10yrs to see all the trees established and the flowers out.I saw it the year after the terrible disaster and it very well done and extremely moving.
made visiting the 9/01 memorial more relaxed knowing we had a timed pass and views of manhattan from the harbour were spectacular
Charlie, Angel - I think JC (the commentator) were a great crew! We had a great day, wonderful tour, took pictures with the crew and saw amazing sights! It was well worth it and we will definitely do this again! Thanks so much for making our trip to New York a memorable one!
I booked this tour online in the UK prior to traveling to New York. It was well run and the guides on the New York Water Taxi were really knowledgeable. The fact that the hop on hop off boats were every 45 minutes was great as it gave you enough time in each place. Great value for money!
the hop on hop off cruise was very good the man on the water taxi was very good we done lots in a day being able to get on and off when needed the 9/11 memorial was very touching a day i will not forget would recommend to everyone
This trip has to be done to pay respect, very emotional but lovely place to pay your respect to all those people who lost there lives . It was a busy place but didn't have a long wait the security takes a while l would think peak season in very busy.
