Beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty with an entertaining tour guide (Gary). It was a bit like the jungle cruise at Disneyland and an excellent history lesson wrapped in one. The seaport area is awesome and fun to explore before or after your tour.


I highly recommend this cruise to everyone! The crew is not only polite and friendly but also the guide is incredibly knowledgeable. The opportunity to have the Freedom Lady right in front of you for the most amazing pictures is absolutely priceless.


From website info thought we’d be using sound pods, but Guide Andy didn’t mention, started narrating tour. Talked very fast, hard to follow..but my 1st time Nyc husband still enjoyed.


Great trip, on time, friendly, informative. Boat was busy but plenty of room. Great views of Statue of Liberty and surrounding areas.


Cruise was ok. It wasn’t an hour. We took off 10 minutes late and got back a few minutes early so it was more of a 45 min cruise. We did not get as close as we had hoped to the Statue of Liberty. Also, there was 10 of us and no one could hear the audio from the tour guide.


Seeing the Statue of Liberty was amazing. Wish the tour went closer to the Brooklyn bridge. Great staff!


Commentary on the boat was outstanding. Liberty weekend coming up so the airforce practicing their displays was an added bonus. Lady Liberty was majestic.


Quick and fun tour! The views were beautiful and we got some amazing pictures! The staff were friendly and the guide was very knowledgeable, learn so much.


Great tour! Loved the experience! The guide was knowledgeable and funny as well . The cruise was smooth and all the seats had great views. They had a bar on board and the whole trip was memorable . We would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone visiting the city!


The ride itself was good. Great views. Tour guide who was an older gentleman was rude and not enjoyable. He seemed annoyed the entire time and was short tempered with all of the passengers. Then on top of it he reminded us to tip him afterwards.
