Great trip the crew where so helpful especially when 2 of our group where dropped at the wrong pier by their taxi , the commentry was both imformative and entertaining and the crew helped with the taking of photos. A great way to see NY at night would highly recommend it.

This was a perfect ending for my graduation day. Was a very enjoyable experience. Complimentary champagne was the only bad experience.

Totally incredible boat trip. Especially at the Statue of Liberty when we stopped. The view of it as the music was overwhelming. It s one of life's "moments."

Tour itself was great, took some of the trips best photos. The voucher process is just dumb however. You received the voucher then stand in massive line to exchange for a ticket . The voucher should be enough for admission. Others booked with different tours on the same and were emailed a ticket.

We had a great time on the Statue of Liberty sunset tour! The info was interesting and it was really a different perspective to see the skyline and statue in the setting sun. Champagne was a nice touch too!

We were a little surprised thst the 'cruise' was on a New York water taxi but it did take us out to the Statue of Liberty which was the point of the exercise. Luckily we arrived early and were near the front of the queue and managed to get a seat on the upper deck. Top tip is to sit on the right hand side of the deck as people arent allowed to stand on that side of the boat.So good views and great photos

Great way to see the NYC skyline. Enthusiastic tour guide, cheap champagne, cheesy patriotic music ~ it was really a lot of fun for a reasonable price. Highly recommend!

Great tour! Wish it had been later in the spring or early summer because it was freezing on that boat!

Not well sign posted to the pier area very dark as unlit. The Cruise it self was absolutely fabulous. A well recommended trip

We arrived in a snow blizzard and it was freezing cold. We were issued our tickets and promptly told that there was no where for us to wait out of the storm despite the fact that the boat was crewed and ready to go. We found a sheltered spot and waited with a whole load of other people. Eventually we were allowed of the boat much to every ones relief, but by which time we had been waiting for a good 20 minutes. The tour was very good despite the conditions, but was marred by the fact that we had to wait outside in the freezing snow. The instructions for the trip was top arrive 30 minutes before departure, with this in mind the operator should have allowed us access to the boat immediately bearing in mind the conditions.
Despite all the above I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants the most fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty

We had done the Helicopter ride during the day (which was FANTASTIC!) so we were looking forward to the evening cruise. It was a little confusing which pier to go from as the pier quoted on the coupon had been changed and we were not informed. Luckily, we asked someone who told us which pier was correct.They also informed us that we had to exchange the coupon for actual tickets and where to go to do this.This had not been relayed to us either.It would have been a disaster if we had turned up for the cruise and missed it because we did not have actual tickets!
The cruise itself was well worth the money with a complimentary glass of Champange and a funny tour guide! The view of Downtown Manhattan lit up at night and the Statue of Liberty were jaw-dropping! We were well informed of the history of the area etc.
Would definately recommend this trip.However, please inform the tourists beforehand of any changes and specify that we have to exchange the voucher and where.

We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend to others. The tour guide was informative and the experience of the cruise was my favourite part of my five days in New York. However, their were two downsides:
1 - When we arrived at the sea port our voucher told us to to go to Pier 17. However, Pier 17 was closed and we were unsure where to go. After asking other citizens in the area we finally found our waiting place at Pier 16.
2 - We almost did not board the cruise because we did not know that we had to redeem paper tickets in exchange for our voucher (which we printed and signed). This was not a clear instruction from the voucher and we were alerted to this problem by the tour guide when we attempted to board. After a quick run to the gate house (approx 100m from where we were), which was closed but opened only to help us, we luckily managed to redeem our tickets and board the boat.

The view was awesome. We were on top the deck only thing is the tour guide using a mic but could barely hear what he was saying.

The highlight of the trip was seeing the statute of liberty up close in all her glory. Very nice cruise along the Hudson River, beautiful sights of Manhatten skyline. The crew were warm, friendly and hospitable. The only problem was finding where to pick up the cruise, we kept looking for something called Viator, we had to do some asking around before we found out that it was with the New York water taxi....a bit confusing. All in all the trip was everything I thought it would be.

Its was extremely nice, to ride and take pictures of Statue of Liberty, the staff was very friendly. Extra bonus was having free champagne taste. My daughter truly enjoyed her 16th birthday. My only complain is they ask if its a gift, however they don't announce the special occasion

Great trip around the Statue of Liberty, very informative and great photo opportunities. The staff was very courteous and helpful and made the trip enjoyable even though there was NOTHING (not even water) to drink on the ferry except complimentary champagne. Poor planning there. Overall I would rate it a 6 out of a 10 because all accomodations advertised were not met. The Statue of Liberty will always be a beautiful reminder of our country's great beginnings and triumphs. I would recommend this tour to others with the caveat that you bring your own refreshments with you and enjoy the adventure!
