Great trip at reasonable price thanks to Viator. Only problem is the wait in the long queue in the sun. We found it very enjoyable and informative.

We took this cruise and really enjoyed it! This was the perfect thing to do since the South Street Seaport is undergoing major renovation because of the damage from hurricane Sandy. The cruise is 60 minutes long and we sailed along the East River under the Brooklyn Bridge, continued around the tip of Manhattan with great views of Battery Park, WTC/Freedom Tower, the NJ skyline, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty along with a couple of other sights. We also got some really great pics. Our tour guide Matthew, was extremely informative and personable with an entertaining manner. I took my two daughters ages 14 and 11, along with their two friends who never had a visiting experience in NYC. Unfortunately, The Seaport is not the same exciting, bustling place I remember 25 years ago and there is not much to do there until renovations are completed. So I will include a little detail of what we did nearby. Afterwards, we walked to Chinatown by way of Foley Square and had lunch on Mott Street. The girls had a ball shopping in all the little shops there and experiencing the culture. Then we walked to Little Italy and stopped for some gelato at the world-famous Ferrara's on Grand St. We had a really great time and everything was a lot of fun and super-enjoyable, including the weather! I would highly recommend this cruise as a starter for a day of visiting NYC.

This was my favorite thing we did. I LOVED the Zephyer we sat on the top of the yacht, got very close to the Statue of Liberty and LOVED that they played Frank Sinatra's New York, New York. That was perfect. I would recommend this to EVERYONE along with Central Park.

Excellent boat cruise of around Statue, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge and the amazing lower Manhattan skyline. Very comfortable...... lots of viewing spaces...... concession stand could be better in terms of providing decaf coffee but otherwise good. The commentator was outstanding.... very interesting commentary on New York and New Jersy.........thanks

We really enjoyed our trip with Statute of Liberty Express. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable. If we had to do it all over again, we would certainly choose your company. Thanks for a wonderful tour.

The tour for the money was a super good deal! The narrative speaker was informative and professional.
The boat itself needed some attention. Seemed weathered and dirty (the inside) a chunk of my cushion was missing. Overall the experience was great!
