The guide was very informative!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

The trip was worth the money, except we picked a very cold day to travel. It would be much better to get outside for photo ops.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Great 2 hour tour around the island. Cruised past the statue of liberty, under many bridges and was able to see the city from the outside. Would recommend this.

This is a great way to see the city from a different perspective- we went with the VIP upgrade - this gave us very good seats and a server who got us our drinks to save joining the queue downstairs as well as a bag of cookies to take away with us! The guide, David, was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the sights with humour, he was quite a character. It was a very worthwhile trip, highly recommended

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We loved this tour. The captain was great and as he had been working on the circle line for 15 years, there wasn't anything he didn't know.
The boat was really big and there was plenty of room to move around. I would highly recommend taking this tour. It is a great way to see NYC from the water.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Great way to look at Manhattan from all angles as this cruise goes a complete round on the river, starting from the Hudson river, to the Statue, then to the East river under the Brooklyn Bridge, up north, then on the other side on Hudson river and then back. You will get some amazing views throughout. Plus make sure to hit the bar while on the cruise. It's fun to sip a drink while Manhattan keeps showing itself in various ways to you!

Really great, informative tour - our guide Chris was fantastic, and taught us so much about 'real', authentic New York without all the 'boring stuff' you might expect. Some beautiful photo ops and we got right up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty. I would highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

At least in decent weather, this is a great way to see a range of midtown, downtown, harbor and Brooklyn landmarks. Many unrivaled photo ops. Entertaining but not overly obtrusive announcements.
