Debbie, the guide, was so great. She was friendly and so informative. It was wonderful that she was willing to take photos of people! Her information about NYC was extensive. I highly recommend this cruise and Debbie!

Perfect express cruise
Abi_C, Sept 2023
Brilliant, the express cruise was just what we wanted. 60 minutes of sight seeing and lots of information from the tour guide who was really nice! Would recommend this is you’re short on time but want to see the Statue of Liberty up close
Awesome experience
LaKeisha_M, Sept 2023
The ride was smooth and there was plenty of history shared along the ride. I would recommend for family and friends due to simple process and awesome experience. You won’t regret the purchase at all…it’s very simple and easily located when you arrive at the pier.
Don't book them
John_M, Sept 2023
Small boat on top. Impossible to see good pictures. Go elsewhere for better experience. It was not 90 minutes. Cruised around the port for one hour. Not worth it
William_T, Sept 2023
Beautiful weather, engaging guide! Clean equipment. Pier 16 next to Tin Building, amazing too! Cruise was just long enough.
Chad_M, Sept 2023
Excellent! Just as advertised, short tour with great photo ops. Would definitely recommend for those who are in a time crunch
Great experience
Raquel_V, Sept 2023
We were able to see the statue clearly and from a perfect distance to appreciate it. Not too far and not too close. Great views of the skyline and Brooklyn bridge were amazing as well. Money well spent.
Diva’s Trip
Rita_S, Sept 2023
The Statue of Liberty is beautiful, I enjoyed the Tour. Except, you all allow to many people on board. There were people blocking my view which made It hard to take pictures.
Exactly what we wanted!
Monica_S, Sept 2023
The meeting point was easy to find and the guide (Dean) was wonderful! The ride was exactly what we were looking for… a quick but impressive sightseeing experience!
Why did I never do this before?!?!
Noel_S, Sept 2023
A MUST DO!!! Especially if you don't have much time in the city. A truly wonderful 45 minutes experience!!! I lived in NYC from 1982 to 1990 and sadly never took the time to do this. This was an amazing opportunity to see and feel the beauty and energy of Manhattan, it's neighborhoods and history, from the outside...not to mention seeing Lady Liberty on all her glory so closed! Please do this regardless how long you have in NYC!
Good boat tour
Alfie_C, Sept 2023
The boat tour was great as we got up close to the Statue of Liberty for a photo. Only disappointment was the audio was very quite so we could hear the tour guide.
Nice boat ride
Jeurray_I, Sept 2023

Great Tour

Cruise 🛳
Maria_C, Sept 2023
It was nice just wished the windows inside the boat were clean so that we can see out and take pictures. Other then that it was an amazing ride.
Nice tourr
Lisa_E, Sept 2023
It was hard to hear the commentary. The speakers need to be louder ir there need to be more speakers in order to hear over the boat engine and people talking.
Loved it!
Allison_M, Sept 2023
Having previously done a cruise tour before, this was by far the best. The one I went on previously was on a large and busy boat, it was hard to get a d good view of anything. It was also so long and tedious, I fell asleep for part of it. This tour was so different! I liked that it was quite quick. And the tour guide was informative, funny and delivered the tour in that snappy, and bold manner that is so synonymous with New York. He was a native New Yorker and thus was really informative and helpful.
Fun Trip to Statue of Liberty
Melodie_B, Sept 2023

Perfect for a little break from walking
Lorena_V, Sept 2023
Very nice ride. Informative and fun. There’s a little pop up restaurant next to it. You can bring food and drinks on the boat so that’s nice too. The guide was very nice and lively. We all enjoyed it
Seeing the Statue of...
Francesca_A, Sept 2023
Seeing the Statue of Liberty so close is exciting. The wait of 45 minutes under the sun without any repair is not nice.
Funny and informative tour guide
