Great boot trip!

One of the highs on our New York trip! If you love architecture and love boots, this is a great combination. You'll go around Manhattan and all artefacts will be pointed out, hearable both inside and on deck during the trip. You'll also come close to the Statue of Liberty. We weren't very lucky with the weather but it didn't matter, it only gave us more space in the boat as there were only about 20 people joining in.

Absolutely Fabulous Tour Completely Around Manhattan!

This trip was the highlight of our visit to New York and one of the best tours we've experienced world-wide in the past several years. Superb commentary and expertise on the architecture of New York from the water starting from the dawn of the "skyscraper" to the ultra-high buildings being built now. Cannot recommend it strongly enough, it was a treat, for sure!

Very Relaxing Tour

We did this tour on a nice sunny day. The views were terrific and we got many nice photos. Drinks and a substantial snack were provided during the cruise around Manhattan. Unfortunately, my drink crashed to the ground when the boat his a small wave but the crew graciously provided a free replacement, which was very, very nice of them. They couldn't have been nicer about cleaning up the mess, too. All in all, this was a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon. Seeing the buildings from the waterside provides a nice perspective.

Early 40s couple from CA loved the detail and information our guide put into the tour. It’s about 3 hours, they serve a light appetizer and give you a free drink. Beautiful close up of Lady Liberty. Boat goes all the way around the island so go outside to take pics at your fav spots.
