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!
Thoroughly enjoyed it as got to statue just as sun was setting. Excellent trip
Started on time. The guide was brilliant. It was my boyfriends birthday and the whole boat sang happy birthday to him while we sipped on champagne. The evening was very special.
Most enjoyable; great views of the city and excellent commentary. Though it was a cold evening, one could choose to stay inside in the warmth and drink the complimentary champagne! Recommended.
It was a great experience and good to see by night!
If going take jacket as cold by water
It was very informative and the crowd and tour guide were pleasant. The scenery was beautiful. I would recommend taking someone close to you or going with a group of friends. There are lots of opportunities to take pictures, and the complimentary champagne was a welcome bonus. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting NYC or even those that live in NYC as a way to relax and enjoy an exciting view of New York.
Too many people standing on the top deck, blocking view of seated passengers! Windows in lower deck were hard to see through.
I was a bit disappointed with this tour as it started after the sun had set, but still enjoyed it and would not have missed it.
average trip, catch the staten island ferry for free for almost the same thing without the commentary
Must get there early...we were there 45 minutes early and still didn't get a window seat. There wasn't anywhere to take pictures.
Overall this was enjoyable, but quite a few of us were there early in line, so we could sit up top, to get good views and photos of NY at night, but as we were starting to embark, a load of people turned up and jumped the queue, and was not stopped by the operator, who had told us all to queue firsat. Subsequently, there was no room up top, once I got on, when I would have easily got a seat up top before.
