Great view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Perfect if you are not looking to actually walk on the island but want a close view of Lady Liberty.


We chose Circle Line for our harbor tour. The staff were very friendly and the person in charge of security was gracious enough to upgrade us to premier status in recognition of our 40th anniversary. We had great views & seating upstairs. Our tour guide (I think his name was George) was the best!


The experience was a good one. The tour guide very informative. Plenty of chairs. Get there an hour early to get the seats you want.

Annoying tour guide (Dave) didn’t give us a chance to think he talked so much (NONSTOP). Felt like I was being yelled at the whole time and he happily kicked us off at the end after we listened to his life story. The water was pretty and boat ride was nice other than the terrible tour guide 🥺☹️


Great cruise and would highly recommend. Our tour guide Alexis was very knowledgeable and provided some great facts on NYC ending with a bit of Broadway. The whole process was well organised - we arrived at the time advised and boarded straight away and found seats outside where we wanted to sit. If you want to sit outside I would suggest to get there early. Great views - a very pleasant way to spend a morning!


The history of NY presented by the tour guide. The close view of the Statue of Liberty, WTC, Bridges (Brooklyn & Manhattan).


Easy way to see the shoreline and statue of liberty! Informative speaker talked of Nyc history! Highly recommend


We took the landmarks tour and really enjoyed it. Having upper deck tickets allowed us plenty of space to move about and a bar and toilets to ourselves. Best of all was boat tour guide Andy. A fabulous dry wit and he brought the tour to life. Well done to him. Recommend.


Some friends and I did the Landmarks cruise in late April. The weather was a very comfortable 73°F so we decided to book online the day of. Purchasing tickets online was pretty straight forward but the marketing emails I began receiving made me regret using my real email address. We had some first timers to the city and contemplated taking the free State Island Ferry instead. In the end we booked this cruise because seeing the Statue of Liberty up close was a big priority. There was some debate as to whether to pay for the premium seating or just regular admission. We went with regular and found it was just fine. Despite being in the line 30 minutes before the cruise it appeared there were a ton of people ahead of us and they snatched every last seat up top. I started to freak out but my friend said a staff member suggested sitting down below by the snack bar. The reason: the doors in front open up after the boat sets off and you kinda have your own area. It was far less crowded down below which was great. There is a concession stand below which had drinks and food like nachos, chips, hot dogs, beer, etc. The price is inflated of course but not by a ridiculous margin. You're on a boat after all. The service, however, was terribly slow. The 2 girls who staffed it showed zero urgency and ultimately received zero tip. I ordered a hot dog which I had to wait 20+ min for because they failed to prepare them for their 12:30 cruise. They began putting them on the grill 10 minutes after we left the dock. As for the cruise itself we were all quite satisfied with the views and the amount of landmarks you pass. Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, and of course the Statue of Liberty....you won't miss a thing. 2 hours was just the right amount of time. I'd highly recommend this cruise to anyone wanting a panoramic tour of the city. My advise would be to opt out of premium seats unless the weather is poor and sit below. A final reminder though: do NOT use your real email address when booking tickets here or anywhere in NY. I'm STILL getting crazy amounts of spam weeks after my trip.


It was a well organized cruise with continuous commentery by expert, who knew his job well. Very comfortable well managed. It covers all major places of interest.
