Perfect Tour
Suzanne_T, Apr 2024
This was a boat tour in luxury. It was warm and toasty, even though it was 43 degrees outside. The friendly staff greeted us with bubbly wine and snacks. The views were spectacular and the boat was beautiful.
Wonderful experience!
Sohuila_D, Apr 2024
Such a wonderful experience! The captain and crew were awesome and did a great job taking care of us and explaining the history of the sights. We can’t wait to do it again and bring the whole family! Don’t miss out on heading outside to take photos. It was so much fun!
Great outing in NYC

The crew were great! It was a rainy day so not the best day to be on the water, but they made it enjoyable and the boat is lovely.

Outstanding tour! Beautiful boat, knowledgeable staff. Perfect length of time, doesn't take up much of your day. Loved everything about our experience.
Heather_E, Jan 2024
The crew on the boat were friendly and worked hard however it was very disappointing that we did not get close to the Statue of Liberty. We failed to get good photos because the boat was too far away from Lady Liberty. The cost of this excursion was not worth it!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hello Heather, Thank you for booking a cruise with us and taking some time to leave a review. We are happy to hear that the crew took great care of you, and we are surprised to hear that you did not get close to the Statue of Liberty as we generally do our best to get very close on all trips of this type. We do not have enough details to determine which day and time you were aboard, but if you would like to contact us at to provide that information we would be happy to check into this further. Please feel free to reach out with anything you would like to discuss as we value your feedback and will use it to improve in any ways that we can. Warmly, Classic Harbor Line
Cruising New York
LuisCarbajal, Jan 2024
My wife and I were in NY for a few days and wanted to maximize our time doing something fun while seeing the city. The Statute of LIberty and Skyline Cruise fit our needs perfectly The boat was very comfortable and was enclosed with glass. We had a table where we could sit and enjoy a drink and snacks while we went around the harbor. We got great views of the skyline and the Statue of LIberty. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The cruise was 90 minutes long and worth every bit of the cost, which was very reasonable. We would love to do it again the next time we are in NYC
Luxurious cruise experience

Relaxing ride with great photo ops
Stevie_V, Oct 2023
My mom and I were in NYC for a short time, so we had to pack in as much as we could. This ferry tour sounded perfect since you ride around the Hudson and get great views of the city and the Statue of Liberty. A free drink is included with your ticket and you can buy more on board along with small bites. I enjoyed the information the captain gave about the buildings and how he called out photos ops. The rest of the crew were available to help take photos and provide more info.
River Cruise anyone? Say Yes to this!
Natasha_R, Oct 2023
This experience was well organized and comfortable. It was the perfect amount of time to view the statue of Liberty, with great views. The captain & crew were professional and friendly.
Let’s do it again soon!
Simone_E, Oct 2023
