Loved everything about this tour, great views!

, Jul 2018

The cruise was nice worth the price I paid 20 a person approx but hard to hear the person doing the commentary, I actually could not hear her at all. Other than that it was very enjoyable and nice!

Worth every penny. Very informative but not overwhelming.

This was an easy way to see the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan without walking all over the place. Only bad part was the weather was terrible...fog and light rain...and cold! Boat was nice and warm though. You can get off at the World Trade Center Memorial and get back on later. Watch the times so you don't miss the next boat. Jacob did a nice job narrating the trip.

We loved this tour. It was our first morning in NYC and was a great way to see many of the sights and gain our bearings of the city. Nadia was the host ands she was awesome! So knowledgeable and entertaining. It was great that we could also get off at the 9/11 Memorial. Thank you, would definitely recommend.
