The Hudson River cruise was a great opportunity to learn about the history of the area. It was educational and relaxing at the same time. Do it.

Beautiful day, calm waters. Peter the narrator was excellent...made the tour special with his knowledge and area facts. Everyone working on board was so pleasant. Snacks were reasonably priced and affordable for my family. Saw 6 eagles and a beautiful white swan. Great way to spend our afternoon.

excellent cruise on the Hudson River, all the land features were pointed out and their history was told. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

The cruise was wonderful. The crew and the narrator were polite and professional. The only addition I could make would be for the narrator to make an additional comment at the outset about talking during the narration. We were seated in the lower lounge area for this cruise. It was difficult if not impossible to hear most of the narration over several loud conversations going on around us. There was ample time for conversation on the return leg as the narration was over.
