Absolutely loved it! The boat was much bigger and busier than we thought, but luckily got a seat on the top deck and it was very enjoyable. Going past Statue of Liberty was my favourite bit, amazing!! Highly recommend and Alexis the tour guide was great fun! This is a New York trip must!

Nice boat tour to see the skyline and also the Statue of Liberty at night. You should only dress warmly, the ship is not completely closed anywhere and it is always colder on the water. Snacks and drinks are okay, but really expensive. Unfortunately, the information from the guide was too quiet and too noisy to hear everything. All in all, a worthwhile tour that we would do again.

The boat tour was a really great experience. It's already wanted given the sight of Manhattan's backdrop and the contrast between the onset of darkness and the world of lights of the skyscrapers. Totally impressive. Starting from the Hudson River, past the southern tip, into the East River, crossing all 5 suspension bridges, we then went around "Lady Liberty". Simply terrific!
