Wonderful tour.
We had a beautiful and sunny day which made everything so much better. The boat took us close up to Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty and the skyline of NYC. And we didn't have to stand in line anywhere. Our photos came out beautiful. Can only recommend this trip to anyone.

Our tour guide was hilarious! He reminded me of Michael Rappaport. We had a beautiful day to see Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty from the water. It was an altogether wonderful experience.
