I highly recommend this tour. The views of the city are amazing and the information provided by the tour guide was great!!

The guide was knowledgeable and amusing and we learnt so much about the areas surrounding the river.It was magical to see the buildings light up as it got darker.I would recommend this cruise if you want to understand how New York evolved and see much more of the city from the water.
This tour was well the money! It was great to see all the major sites so close up - especially the Statue of Liberty! No need to go on the famous ferry - the boat trip shows you the Brooklyn Bridge too!
Couldn't really hear what the tour guide was saying but the tour itself was brilliant.
Worth going much later in the evening if you want to see it all lit up,
I lost my phone whilst out there so I lost all my photos sadly :-
Absolutely fantastic experience. very easy to organise and a brilliant way to see this beautiful city.
This cruise was a great introduction to NYC. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and also funny. We went at 6:30 in July it was warm and we didn't get to see the city at night, but it was still a great cruise.
This was my first time booking through Viator. It was easy to book and really enjoyed the cruise. Location and Parking is biggest challenge. Parking can be hard to find. Limited food and seating available before departure, but there are some options. Our cruise began at 730. Were told to arrive at least by 7, started to line up for boarding at 7:15. they take a picture before boarding and you see it later with option to purchaseor can be purchased later online I think. You are given a card with information on it. During the tour, the guide shares a lot of information about a lot of building/sights. Just seeing the transition of the skyline is beautiful. The boats turns around at Statue of Liberty so every one can see clearly, which is nice. There are snacks on board for purchase as well. Really enjoyed this experience and would def. do again. Lots of photo opportunities and nice being on water and seeing the skyline! Worth every penny! Beautiful evening!
When we called 24hrs before to confirm they told us it started at 7.30pm which was a much better start time for the cruise. Plenty of opportunities to get good photographs. It was a really great experience and we were very lucky with the weather as there was a wonderful orange/pink and red sunset!

The Twilight Harbor Crise was wonderful! Views were awesome from the water, especially at sunset. Staff was great--the narrator/guide Jamaica Girl as she called herself was entertaining and informative. She let everyone know exactly what was ahead and gave notice of the photo ops. Our entire group myself, adult children and young grandkids thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this cruise for everyone!
This is the second time we have done this tour. I think it is great. Nice views as the sun sets. Also a great tour without being extremely overpriced like some of the others.

This cruise was the highlight of our trip! Because Manhattan is so big, you cannot possibly see it all, but with this cruise you see everything! We got close ups of the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Washington bridges as well as the Statue of Liberty! The commentary was also great as it was told by locals, who advised to take the Staten Island ferry when we get a chance because it's free! Good to know! Pro tip: There is food, drinks, and gelato available for purchase from the dock where the cruise departs from so if you get there early you can have a bite to eat before you depart! Also city bus stops go to the port and are free!

It was brilliant! Before we booked this tour we checked sunset times, so that we had some day light and then finished the cruise in the dark, so we had the best of both worlds. We were also very lucky with the weather, especially for the end of October, it was warm and clear. I would highly recommend.
The tour guide was amazing.
His knowledge of the city was expansive and he made me cry with his telling of the miracle on the hudson reminding everyone to give a thought to loved ones.
It is awesome. It is worth the money. Just one thing which i wish could be the cruise should have more open area for seating and standing as it is more to watching outside.
everyone who wants to see NYC should see it .

Great way to see New York by night. I really enjoyed the tour and New york perspective from the river and bay.
Loved it! it was beautiful, affordable, and I got to learn some cool things and take nice pictures along the way!
We had a magnificent time on this cruise. Weather, cruise, BLUE MOON, and cruise guide who was very informative could not have been better. Price was incredible for such a perfect experience.
We had perfect weather and the trip was fabulous. Eat before you arrive since there is no Restaurants very close by. We did find a fun bar in the main terminal next to the ticket office. Sunset is the time to take this tour.
Educational and entertaining narrative to match the amazing views. Well done !!
First thing we did when we arrived. From the airport to the cruise perfect start to a great trip!!!!!
The cruise was fabulous and very informative. Beautiful view of Manhattan at night. However, the employee working the ticket booth on Sat, Aug 2 in the evening was completely unfriendly. She did not greet anybody. She did not speak to anybody. She just sat in her chair and printed out tickets. Horrible customer service. The poor attitude showed in her face. She should not be working with customers. I suggest putting her down in the engine room of the boat.
