5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Loved this! NY is beautiful from the water. It was a nice day and the captain was great in explaining what we were seeing! My only complaint was that people tended to stand up to look at certain things which made it hard for those of us on the other side of the boat to see.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

The boat cruise was spectacular. Very convenient location at Pier 78. The cruise was 90 minutes - perfect length of time. We saw everything. Great tour guide, very knowledgeable. Explained the major monuments and their history, but also gave us the background story on all of the smaller and less known buildings. Boat was clean, it was exactly what we were looking for.

A great trip around the harbour, taking in 360 degree circuit of the Statue of Liberty. The guide was very interesting and funny. Would highly recommend. Definitely value for money.

Had visitors from overseas. 5 tickets cost us 150.00 for hop on hop off boat. Great value. We saw Statue of Liberty, S. Street Seaport, Ground Zero, Dumbo and more. A great bang for a buck.
