What a fantastic way to see Manhattan from the water! It was a very enjoyable 2.5 hours. Everything was well organised, the crew helpful and friendly, and the warm sunshine helped as we were out on deck. The seats were comfortable, the ship was clean and we thoroughly enjoyed the excursion.

We really enjoyed the 2 and 1/2 hour cruise. The staff were really friendly and welcoming, plenty of good seating and the tour guide (a radio dj?) was terrific. We loved his references to older music, people, places; very informative and entertaining. We also had a great lunch during our time—did a combo meal and thought it tasty and worth the price. We definitely recommend this line—had a bad experience with TopView/hop on hop off and we’re really glad to have this better option.

Nice way to know New York from a different perspective. The boat ride was tranquil, safe and the vies were incredible. We took the ride departing at 3pm which gave as the opportunity to see the sunset by the time we were returning. The only thing that we suggest to improve is the coffee shop at the boat. We wanted to buy 2 cups of coffee but it took ages to try get them due to lack of efficiency of the girls attending customers. Prices were crazy. Nevertheless it was an excellent experience overall.
