The perfect way to see the skyline glittering. I know the Staten Island Ferry is free and runs 24 hours a day, but there was no queuing for this trip! We spent some time at South Street Seaport first and had a fabulous view of the lights of Brooklyn. Once afloat, we had fabulous views of Jersey City too. The statue was amazing up close, but this trip is worth the fee for the sheer spectacle of the Manhattan skyline by night. Another thoroughly recommended trip.
Really enjoyed by us two adults and two children age 11 and 8. Great views and absolutely fabulous crew who were very informative in an entertaining way and really helpful and friendly. They took numerous pictures for people, giving camera advice for the best shot and pointed out good viewpoints to take photos. Would go again!
Very nice and interesting Evening cruise.
Unfortunately, we had rain-but it was OK with a glas of champange.
It gave us a awesome view of the statue of liberty and the manhattan at night.
Wow!! I had been to New York before, but never saw it like this! Our tour guide (it was a lady) was super cool and actually made the tour fun and interesting!! It was def cold, but they have a lower deck that offers the same as the one on top!! If i ever go back to NY, i will DEF be doing this again!
Absolutely wonderful! The highlight of my NYC trip. Cruising along the East River, sipping champagne, taking in the evening Manhattan skyline while listening to the skipper's historical narrative...priceless!
We had a great time there were (6) of us. We missed our cruise for Monday the 15th because of of our flight being rerouted because of weather. We were accomodated for the following night. Our tour guide was great and very knowlegable.
My favorite part was that the boat actually stops in front of the Statue of Liberty so photographs can be taken. It stops there for about 5 minutes, so everyone has a once-in-a-lifetime chance of getting a picture of you with the statue. :)
I wish the cruise could've lasted longer!! An hour goes by real fast when doing something as priceless as seeing the Statue, Brooklyn Bridge, Manhatten skyline...BEAUTIFUL!!!! The evening cruise was simply perfect. Quite romantic too. :-D Overall, wonderful experience!
My family and I really enjoyed the Statue of Liberty Evening Cruise. The tour guy was very funny and knowledgeable. The kids had an opportunity to go on the top deck and on the front deck. They really enjoyed themself. They were served apple cider and we was served white wine. The bartender was very friendly. My 11 year old daughter loved the bartender she said mommy they gave me apple cider and you should taste it. When I taste the apple cider it was good. She then said mommy I'll be back. She came back with this big smile on her face and another glass of apple cider. My 18 year old step son really enjoyed taking picture of the Statue of Liberty. His pictures came out great. We all enjoyed the tour.
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.
Make sure you get a seat on the top.
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
