The taxi takes you to various locations around NYC and on the way the tour guides tell you a bit of history. Like, the spot where the Titanic was suppose to dock if it made it and where the pilot landed the plane safely on the Hudson. It also takes you by Governors Island, Ellis Island, and the Statue of...

The NY night taxi only lasted an hour....wished it was a bit longer. Debbie, the tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable. I learned about NYC at the same time :). I went there on a cold windy night, so having heated interior seating and a complimentary drink (champagne or apple cider) were bonuses. The boat slowed down on the... More

Free service travelling to Red Hook, Brooklyn, mainly for shoppers going to Ikea. This was a great way to take in sights, getting a close up view while passing the statue of liberty.

Had an awesome Statue by Night tour. Spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty all lit up. The iconic Manhattan skyline was also breathtaking. Joey our guide did a great job, was very informative and funny. Well worth taking the time to do this tour

fantastic way to travel around and take in the Manhattan sky line, sea view of statue of liberty and hop on and off at various locations, can be a little windy so a jumper in cooler months a must

This is a great way to get around all the districts on Manhattan. They are really quick and a great perk is you get a great view of the Statue of Liberty without taking the ferry over there. Will use again on my next trip.

We took our tour on 3/10/14 and Patrick was our tour host. We had a fabulous time with him and he gave us all the inside knowledge on NYC. He gave good advice for things to see and do, and gave us a lot of laughs on the way. My nephew and son really enjoyed the Intrepid tour including the... More

I took the IKEA taxi which had a special rate of $5 which can also be converted into IKEA store credit. The view of Manhattan, the Brooklyn bridge, the statue of liberty and all surrounding areas from the water is amazing. The wind from the sea and the perfect weather that day was an added bonus. The IKEA store where... More

This tour was part of the package when we purchased our trip to New York and it was one of the high points of our visit to New York. The water taxi ride was nice and long enough to see a few landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty along with many skyscrapers (Empire State Building etc.) Jim... More

We booked a 7:30-3:00 tour including Empire State Building, Aircraft Carrier Intrepid, financial district, and 911 Memorial with added 911 Museum. Tour was overly rushed. Jim, our guide was better at telling bad jokes than being informative. We started with 39 people and by the time we ditched the tour, it was down to 25. We finished on our own... More
