It was amazing to get out on the water! The boat was clean, everyone was well-spaced out, and the crew were friendly and helpful. We even had our own table that we didn't share with other guests. The weather was so wonderful we spent almost all of the cruise out on the deck! Seeing Lady Liberty with the sun setting in the background was just delightful. You can't take food or drinks onboard but my friends and I had a picnic in the park nearby, which was actually perfect!
Our English tour would have been cancelled today if it hadn’t been for Stefan who was taking the German tour stepping in. He was fantastic, switching between German and English. The tour was interesting and informative. Even though we have visited NY before, we still saw things we had not seen before and learnt new and interesting facts. Well done Stefan and thank you to the German ladies for allowing us to join your tour - Danke
Our tour guide Sergio made this trip an absolute delight as he was so professional and nice. It was a great insight into how different other areas of NYC are to just Manhattan. Movie locations were pointed out to us and there was plenty of opportunities to take excellent photographs. The service provided by the guide and his driver was first class.
The most interesting part and the well known sights is in the first half. Recommend sitting on the left if you can as the tour goes anti-clockwise round Manhattan island, although most space is reserved for premier ticket holders. We sat on the right and missed a lot inc Empire State. Second half has less of interest and after 2 hours was enough.
I have done 2 cruises. This one at 2 and a half hours long and the one hour long cruise. In my opinion the longer cruise is more suited to Americans as there is a lot of history here and very interesting. However being a Brit I much preferred the shorter cruise, altho if you want to see the bridges this is only available on the longer cruise.
