Great views of the city uninterrupted by people. With a maximum of 12 people you really get to see everything up close and take pictures without having to crop some other person's face out of your photo. Very knowledgeable of the sights. Extremely safe and very accommodating. The highlight of my family’s trip to NYC!

Awesome tour! It was a beautiful June day on the water to view the city. There are saddle seats for ten people and a hand rail to hang on. We were in the center row. The boat moves fast but we didn’t get wet at all. I wore my sun shirt for wind and Sun protection. Sean, our tour guide was great. Explained a lot of what we were seeing and was very pleasant. A must do if you want something faster than a buffet cruise.

This was the highlight of our trip, Eric was an amazing guide and took us on an exhilarating tour of all the main sights at high speed! He was super knowledgeable and looked after us so well, taking time to take our photos and explain all the key facts. The weather was a little choppy but he still took us and it only served to make it even more thrilling!
