This is a MUST tour when you come to New York. You will learn so much about the Island and a day on the water with the view of the skyline is PRICELESS.......

Even though it was raining we had a great time. Staff was wonderful and I didn’t realize you actually circle the entire island of Manhattan. You should add that fact to you literature.

The description is 100% accurate, lots of info about the buildings and structures while you navigate all around Manhattan. Not recommend for children, teenagers were also not into it. There is A/C on the boat and windows open, so temperature was comfortable. Assigned tables were appreciated. Highly recommend.

After many years of living and visiting Manhattan this is unquestionably the most informative and complete tour of the city. I think it a must. Ignore a visit to the statue or the circle and take this. For 3 hours the very experience guide will inform and entertain you

No reply from Operator

We were supposed to come to NYC early June but had to cancel our trip as we fell ill with COVID. Contacted the tour operator to see if a date change or refund was possible and did not get a single reply despite reminders. Would not recommend an activity were the organizer does not provide any customer care.

The boat ride was great, The waitresses and work staff were very polite and helpful but the person giving all the information you can hear him and it would be nice if they had assisted hearing devices so if you could better understand and know what he was saying because the two speakers just weren’t enough we missed a lot of the presentation

This was by far the best tour on our trip. The perfect warm allowed the best views. The tour staff was great and the guide narrating was informative. A very special shot out to Ramon and Ritchie for taking very good care of us. Ramom and Ritchie were very polite, friendly, and provided Superior service. Thanks guys for making our experience the very Best!
