New York: 90-Minute Landmarks Cruise Skip-The-Box-Office
- Small group
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 1.5 hours
Originally I had a previous day that I missed because of an online error of the date. The customer support (Sarah) helped me out big time and rescheduled us for another date although it was originally not possible due to the terms of service; she was very understanding and didn't make my 70 bucks go down the drain. The day was hot, sunny, blue skies...perfect! The boat was air conditioned, clean, had 2 concession stands that served some nice goodies, pizza, hotdogs, cookies, soft drinks (alcohol) you will be comfortable! The boat ride had a really nice and cool narrator who was very informative of the landmarks and also very witty! Explained safety, life jackets, etc. The best place and "cool" shade with the best view and experience was the lower deck! you could taste the salt water in the breeze and feel the water splash on you too. If you want a tan, sunburn, or heatstroke..stay off the top deck lol! I would go on this boat ride again!
My husband and I embarked on a 90-minute harbor tour on a comfortable, blue-sky September afternoon. What a pleasure to see the city, the Statue of Liberty and bridges from the water! Best of all was the narration by our wonderful guide, a radio personality, whose name escapes me. He was extremely entertaining and very engaging - one of the best such guides I have ever encountered. The boat was comfortable and offers food and drinks as well. Even if you know the city well, what more perfect way to spend a small part of your NYC vacation!
Enjoyed this sightseeing cruise which was well organised and delivered what it promised. The guide was excellent, really knew his stuff and quite funny as well! Would definitely recommend this cruise for those looking to visit the Statue of Liberty by boat and see more of the Manhattan skyline at sunset. The views toward the back of the boat on returning to the harbour were stunning!
Having such an interesting and informative tour guide made this quite an unforgettable experience. Just need to make it clearer that people need to arrive so early for boarding .. it was only by chance we got there just before the 45 minute call time!
We saw everything as advertised. Accept better, because the boat was slow moving. Lots of time for great photographs. And the running commentary was very informative. A great cruise.
