When exiting the South Ferry station we were accosted by several people with pamphlets trying to sell us tickets to see the Statue of Liberty. We realised that the tickets to visit the crown were sold out for the next several weeks so my boyfriend asked how we could get to Liberty Island to just walk around instead. We were... More

Went on the VIP all access tour with Kernin as our guide. It was a great way to start our trip and we were able to get into the attractions on the tour with little fuss. Kernin had a tremendous knowledge of New York and its history. He helped out with anything that we needed to know. After the tour... More

This was a great purchase to make. We got to go to very different places in Manhattan and the Bronx's with a drive by of the Statue of Liberty and a drop off at the World Trade Center Memorial. We had a great guide on the boat. Can't remember his name but he was from the Bronx's. Recommend highly

Our guide was knowledgeable and somewhat funny (although not as funny as he thought he was). My husband and I learned a lot on our tour and enjoyed the sunny weather on top of the water taxi. We had a Groupon for the trip which made the trip even more worth the price that normal. Even at normal price it... More

This was a great way to see the city, especially at night. It was a perfect way to get close to the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 area for some great photo ops. The only reason I didn't rate five stars is that I saw many disappointed people who were toward the back of the line not being able... More

A great way to see the city from a different perspective. Being able to get on and off at each stop is a great feature and allows you to tour the city at your own pace. Also a great value at $26 a person...what can you buy in NYC for $26 these days. Guides on the vessels was fun and... More

My granddaughter, age 4, lives in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn. I took her and her nanny on a ferry boat tour starting at the end of Fulton Street in Brooklyn. . . . . . . You can also get on at numerous other locations. We went out to see the Statute of Liberty from the water; then to... More

We wanted a boat trip around manhattan and this one gave us the option of getting on and off at one of 4 different stops. The various guides gave interesting tourists info often with great humour. Felt it was a great combination of sea travel, views of New York and chances to wander into the city. We decided to get... More

I hesitated to go on this ride because it's relatively expensive. But it was worth every cent, because you can hop on and off all day and you get to visit the brooklyn bridge and statue of liberty.
