Great views of the Statue of Liberty right next to our boat. Quick 30 minute trip each way made it easy in and out.

Excellent trip and great time saver.

Really Great trip, just what we wanted but was much better that we had hoped for as we saw so many things and the commentary was excellent...

It was an excellent experience. We were able to go into the wheel room (not sure if that is correct). The crew was very friendly and I will be back and will also recommend to friends.

Up to now what I can say is that I've lost my money because the boat didn't show up. I asked for a refund and we'll see what it happens.

after I booked my experience, I got a call that the trip was cancelled and was given tickets to a different event, which was ok but I was still pretty upset
Loved it

I enjoyed it! My wife and I got to spend time sightseeing and enjoying the boat ride. I wish the tour was longer but it was awesome!
Cruising NY Harbor

The best part of the cruise was how close the boat came to the Statue of Liberty. It's an impressive sight. However, the rest of the cruise was just a pass by with a narrative that was very hard to hear.
Statue trip

Nice boat trip to statue with boat. Nice crew. If you want to take pictures without going on the island.
Very Disappointed
Anita_E, Nov 2022
The tour boat windows were dirty, so could not take proper pictures through them. The speaker system was poor, we could not hear what they were saying when we were passing various buildings. Also, very limited information and facts about the Statute of Liberty and other buildings, was provided. The boat also looked like it was in poor condtion. No mention of any safety measures or procedures and I don't think there were any life jackets on board.
Great price for a quick, perfect tour

Great trip. Definitely take the 6 pm one in the autumn--not as busy, fantastic lighting, and gorgeous photo ops.
Chreib_S, Jul 2022
It very easy to buy the tickets with viator, but when I'm on the cruise I was a little disappointed it not what I thought it was? I thought it take us to the liberty island but it not.
Never book this trip!

The worst ever! The cruise was cancelled without notice and NO ONE took responsibility. The people at the pier were even saying “we don’t work here” while it was clear they did! Never ever book this trip!
Poignant and memorable trip
Denise_T, Mar 2022
The trip was very enjoyable. Pick up was on time and the commentary very informative. Facilities on board was adequate. Hot drinks were a welcome addition due to the very cold weather. We were happier with a shorter 1 hour trip. We felt we saw what we wanted to during this time.
Great views of the Statue...

It was okay.

Boat needs updating. Got locked out, couldn’t get back in to go back upstairs, when I went out to take pictures.
