I absolutely loved this tour :- Our Tour Guide was fabulous and his knowledge and telling of history and stories relating to the various areas and buildings was excellent. I could have stayed on board for the whole day taking it all in. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC.

Malachi was great as our on board guide. Have done the cruise before and lived in the city for a while, but still learned some new things. Very entertaining. The only down side was the disel fume smell that blew up onto the top deck
