The tour guide, ours was Mike, gives you loads of info about the city as you speed down the Hudson...better than a... More

I found a deal for this on Groupon, so it was an EXCELLENT deal (and I'm cheap!) We were on the Lady Liberty Express - Zephyr. Went from the Brooklyn Bridge right up to the Statue of Liberty and back. Our guide pointed out everything and had great stories for each. It was a great way to see a lot... More

I took the taxi in NY as part of the NY Citipass that I purchased. You can ride it all day long if you like and never get off, OR, hop off at tourist spots and hop back on later. They have a full bar on the boat and a great guide. I rode around on the journey twice before... More

This was a tour of New York by boat and was fantastic. the weather was great and the tour guide was amusing and informative in equal parts - it was a great trip with ample photo opportunities and very reasonably priced - a must do if the weather is good

We had bought the New York Pass and were staying at Times Square so decided to use the water taxi to take us to wall st and ground zero. JP, our guide, was very entertaining the entire journey. Went out past the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn bridge on the return journey. Great views of the city the entire time.... More

It was a great way to see the city on the Hudson, especially the brilliant Brooklyn Bridge, one of my favorite looking bridges. We got to see the Statue of Liberty very well, and the skyline. It was a last minute decision and I'm happy we did this.

We took the water taxi from Pier 79 down to Battery Park. Excellent commentary by JP and a good trip. On the way back after we'd done Liberty Island and Ground Zero etc we got back on at Pier 11 back to Midtown. On time and educational as well as getting you from A to B.
