We loved this tour. Our guide, Jim? Joe? Sorry! was so patient and informative, the boat was ok, very clean... but seating could have been more comfortable - however, the sights were amazing. To see the skyline from the water, both NYC and Jersey, were great. If you can only do one thing in NYC, take this cruise.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Very excellent tour!!! This tour is a wonderful way to see NYC and get many very nice pictures. The guide for the tour was excellent and very informative. I will do this tour again when I go back to NYC.
