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.

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.

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Very good tour. The added bonus, which was not explained at the time of purchase on line, was that this was a Hop on Hop off tour. That turned out to be a bonus. We covered all the sights we wanted to see. We were up close at the Stature of Liberty. And you can get off at the Brooklyn Promenade and the 911 Memorial area. The guide was well informed. The day was pleasant. Would recommend.

this was fantastic, our guide was so good with his commentary, we thoroughly enjoyed it. we didn't hop off and stayed on for the whole journey as we were lucky as the boat wasn't too busy and the weather was amazing. i definitely recommend this as a good way to see the city by boat.
