The tour was interesting and is professionally prepared overall. Above all, the guide, for us it was David, told a lot, involved the guests, knew a lot about the country and its people, history and current affairs. We liked it very much. We can recommend the tour to anyone who would like to get close to the Statue of Liberty but does not necessarily want to take the ferry directly across. Of course, you can also see the Manhattan skyline very well from the boat.

This was a great excursion on the water viewing the entire skyline of Manhattan. Very informative. Leave on the west side of Manhattan and circle around the southern & eastern side of the city and back. The announcer was excellent. Do not recommend the soft pretzels, save ur money. Hard seltzer was $16 a can. Bathrooms were very clean. GET THERE EARLY OR YOU WILL BE WITHOUT A SEAT.

It was good. You've seen everything. But we got there 30 minutes before the start time and the ship was almost full. So not a good place. We made the best of it. Next time I would go earlier. But what we didn't like was that you weren't even allowed to take your own drinks with you. It was really hot and we had to finish the drinks before we were allowed on board. I found that cheeky. They sell drinks on board so you probably aren't allowed to bring any in. not ok Otherwise everything was good.
