Overall excellent tour. Departed on time. Viewing of all the landmarks and bridges was great and timely. Slowed down near the Statue of Liberty for viewing and pictures. I do wish the tour guide was more clear and louder. We could not hear most of the tour. Snacks and drinks well overpriced. Pictures taken before entering the cruise was great, although they offer to buy both pictures for $35 and they are the same exact pose with different backgrounds which made very little sense. They should after two different poses. But the memory keep sake is nice. Would recommend!

Great tour! We are visiting New York from Atlanta, GA. I love a boat ride and even better when the staff are exceptionally nice and make your experience joyful. All staff were friendly from the ticket booth, to the knowledgeable guide, to the photo staff, and the very welcoming and professional bartender. Tickets were a great price to me and the e experienced everything we wanted to on a nice ride on the water on a beautiful sunny Thursday! Will use circle line again for my next visit with family.

Nice relaxing cruise seeing beautiful sites in the city. Only issue was people standing at the window so we didn’t have a good view. Employees should be walking around checking people that they’re listening to instructions.
