How I found that
Alexandros_M, Oct 2023
It was a lot of smoke from the Boat engine. That’s why I wouldn’t recommend that for Families with Kids. Of the other hand it was very value for the money we spent.
Andrea_T, Sept 2023
Wonderful experience and close up view of the Statue of Liberty and informative narrator. Had food drinks and souvenir gifts for purchases
Cool experience
Chaka_C, Sept 2023
Nice experience was able to get some pics I had a good time and my girl did too I would do it again but on a bigger boat
An enjoyable hour on the water
Joanna_S, Sept 2023
It went very well - was on time, the narration provided was comprehensive, the time allowed to see the Statue close by was abundant. All the views of Manhattan were greatly enjoyed!
Old boat....

SHIHO_T, Sept 2023
It was Beautiful trip.but it was too difficult to find the gate.tell us more information about gate number.
Rain or Sunshine, it’s worth it!
Karmilia_C, Sept 2023
We had rain but it just made the boat ride far more epic. We had so much fun! We came all the way from California to see Lady Liberty and it was worth the trip
It was rainy for the tour bad weather and I need my refund
Shandra_T, Sept 2023
It rained so how could we have went I need my refund and I have called and asked for my but no response yet where is my refund
This Trip is Perfect for All Travelers and Adventurers
Christopher_J, Sept 2023
Our midafternoon sightseeing trip offered a friendly reminder of how beautiful New York City is and how historic the site of the Statue of Liberty. If you are looking for a fun adventure along the dynamic waterways of Manhattan, you cannot go wrong with the 50 min Sightseeing mg Cruise on a Yacht provided through Viator.
Rich experience
Ryan_B, Sept 2023
Seeing the statue and learnt of its history. The music and viewing the buildings and bridges were amazing. I enjoyed it
Good if it runs on time
Lynn_Y, Sept 2023
We arrived at 1015am for 1030 booking. Boat turned up at 1115am! We were standing in 32degree heat with no shade. No apologies given. The trip itself was good but has left a bad taste
Would like a refund
Anisha_K, Sept 2023
I would like a refund, could not find the pick up spot and no one was picking the call from travel agency. Since i never boarded the yacht , it was a waste of money and time for me and the agency should refund this.
So worth it!
Jameese_W, Aug 2023
Everything was perfect, romantic and relaxing! It was just a wonderful experience! I’m very happy with the price and ride.
Great times
Melissa_S, Aug 2023

Families trip
Chikaseth_O, Aug 2023
Ook envaring voor mijn families en wie veel plezier gehad Good for family trip mix with fun and enjoyable experience
Great time in the city!
LaTanya_D, Aug 2023
I enjoyed the entire trip with my family! My 6 year old was very nervous at first, but after 10 minutes of being on the boat he loved it. He was so excited to see the statue of Liberty. He is already asking to do it again. So I will be seeing you soon. ❤️❤️❤️
Seeing the statue up...
Autumn_K, Aug 2023
Seeing the statue up close was breath taking. But pictures were rushed and unorganized on the front of the boat.
A Great Tour When Short in Time!
Contina_J, Aug 2023
First the bad: there needs to be signage so that you know you are in the right place as there is another cruise on the same pier. We were checking with each other to see if we were in the correct location. This tour is on Pier 36 Dock 2 and it is with Majestic Cruises. They were also 30 minutes late. Now the good: It was a short tour and once we reached Lady Liberty, after giving one side of the ship time for photo ops, he turned to give the other side equal time. Then we headed back to the dock. Even with the lack of direction and the late start, I would still recommend this tour. Just give yourself time to find the meeting place have patience if they are late.
Worth the wait!
Teresa_R, Aug 2023
For being a newcomer got off on a rocky start no guidance on where we are to be to departure, but overall it was worth the wait the kids enjoyed it, the drinks on boat was great! The staff was friendly the bartender was amazing. We most likely will go again while we are in New York it was fun and relaxing. No issues with purchasing tickets or anything .
Horrible Customer Service
Jeffrey_D, Aug 2023
I wanted my 2 boys (6&11) to have a fun & learning experience in NYC for 1st time: Time Squares, Empire SB, Ground Zero, the Vessell, esp Statue of Liberty Weather forecasted sunny all week upto night of but drastically turned morning of travel with torrential downpour to our appt 4:30. Because of rain, traveling & traffic were totally delayed, backed up. Uber dropped us off exactly 4:33, less than 5 minutes late. The yacht was still at dock with minimal passengers. I’d asked 1 of the gentleman employee if me and my sons could board …along with another family. He totally ignored us, walking away in opposite direction, when came back towards us…all he could say was “6 o’clock repeatedly!!!” My 2 young boys stood there, totally soaked & shivered, but was determined to see St Liberty. 5 minutes trying to get another gentleman and he too ignored us! In my 20 years as a manager, I’ve never had or seen such ignorant, unprofessional & downright rude individuals esp. in the line of customer service, entertainment. Your company really need to reevaluate these gentlemen, how they deal with customers and representing your brand in such poor, bad manners!!! Additionally, I’s tried calling the customer service # and emailing since 1pm but unsuccessful. I would not recommend this tour to anyone else!!!
