  • 60-Minute Cruise Around the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island

    1. 60-Minute Cruise Around the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island

    Take a 60-minute boat ride to within 100 feet of the Statue of Liberty. Cruise right under the Brooklyn Bridge and see the most famous skyline in the world. Your live English guide will point out the sites as you journey along the river including the Empire State Building, the new Freedom Tower, the Manhattan Bridge, Governor's Island and more. Make use of both the indoor and outdoor seating, along with large open windows for your viewing pleasure. Get within touching distance of "Lady Liberty" and then move on to Ellis Island to take photos of the famous entry point to New York City. Marvel at the skyline of Manhattan and its famous skyscrapers, including the new One World Trade Center. Glide down both the east and west side of Lower Manhattan, and purchase drinks and food from the concession stand aboard the boat.  A multilingual audio tour is available in English, Italian, German, ...

    It was a really lovely experience. Although the statue wasn’t within touching distance as advertised, nonetheless, it was lovely seeing the statue up close. The service is really good. I missed the first booking, but I was able to reschedule the booking by paying a discounted fee. I, however, believe the tour guide could have been better. She was quite inaudible and it was difficult to follow. Perhaps the guide should focus on describing attractions on one side of the boat whilst departing the pier and focus on the attractions on the other side, when returning. That way, passengers will know what direction to focus on during the tour.

    This was an amazing experience. I took my boyfriend who loves jazz for his birthday and he loved it. Music was great and being outside seeing the skyline and Statue of Liberty was very romantic. The crew were all very nice and even gave us a free drink at the end of the night.

    I really enjoyed this tour. They were good bikes and the route gave us the opportunity to see a fair slice of the city - not just Central Park but a good part of the west of town, Hudson River and port area. We were blessed with perfect weather and it was a small group, which always helps. (Having said that, I'm sure our guide, Pearl, would have taken equally good care of us had there been more of us.) As well as telling us some of the facts and history Pearl also shared something of her own relationship with some of the places we passed, so I had a feeling of being shown round New York on a bike by a real New Yorker. Which I was.

This was an amazing experience. I took my boyfriend who loves jazz for his birthday and he loved it. Music was great and being outside seeing the skyline and Statue of Liberty was very romantic. The crew were all very nice and even gave us a free drink at the end of the night.

The staff was super friendly, the views were breathtaking, the drinks were delicious and the band was awesome. We enjoyed ourselves so much I actually considered booking again for the following night. Lots to do and see in the area before or after the cruise.

Great tour but be sure to go on a cooler day. I went on a really hot day and was super uncomfortable. Our tour guide Julia was really knowledgeable, and told us lots of interesting facts!
