Fantastic!

We did this trip on the last day of our holiday. It was excellent. We saw all the key landmarks around Manhattan. The tour guide gave lots of really interesting historical information. Wish we had done it earlier in the trip as we picked up...More

Put this on your list of NY activities!

My brother recommended this excursion, and he was right! We had great weather too. Our captain pointed out all the sites and gave many interesting facts along that way that made the trip even more enjoyable. Well worth it.

Great trip

This was probably one of the best tours I've had of NYC. The cruise was informative and knowledgeable. I'd do it again.

Excellent Cruise

Highly recommend this Landmark cruise which lasts 90 minutes. All major NYC landmarks passed. It doesn’t stop anywhere but that’s fine. Recommend upgrading to Premier. Separate deck area and comfy seating. Private viewing area too.

Well worth the mobey

This costs the same amount of money as entry to the Empire SB, Top of The Rock and 9/11 memorial. It's a must see event and one of my highlights of NYC. The wet weather made no difference so don't let that put you off.
