We started our vacation by taking the full CircleLine tour around Manhattan island. It was a great way to learn about the city landmarks. It was also fun to hear the stories the tour guide told about the Statue of Liberty (no women were allowed at the dedication ceremony, so the sculptor brought his wife and daughter - love it!),...

We took the 2.5 Circle Manhattan cruise. Awesome views of the Island. Great perspective. Narrator was very informative adding lots of nice 'tid bits" to what we were viewing. Very relaxing and comfortable to get an overview of the area. I definitely recommend

MY gf and I came here in August, and overall, I thought it was a great experience. I highly RECOMMEND that you show up early, because people were there very early, and your seating and view of all the landmarks highly depends on how early you get there, it basically first come, first serve and how early you get there...

Very helpful staff on the tour. Very good tour guide but he could have said more while we cruised down the river as would have liked to know more about some of the places we passed. The Statute of Liberty at night is awesome. We come to NYC every year but seeing it from this perspective made our trip much... More

This harbour lights cruise was by far the highlight of our trip to NYC!! Excellent value for money, the tour guide was extremely knowledgable and the city skyline at night was just spectacular! Statue of Liberty at night was just breathtaking and the boat did a complete 360 so there was ample opportunity for everyone on board to take photographs.... More

We all had a great time! The Liberty cruise is filled with interesting facts about New York. The site lines from the river cannot be beat. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

To get away from the concrete and bustling crowds, Circle Line provides a great way to see the city's sights as well as realize that the city IS surrounded by water! In my experience, this is the best way to see the statue of liberty. I also enjoyed seeing the new One World Trade Center and Ellis Island. I paid... More

Great! I would recommend this circle tour for the first time visitor to NYC. Then go over the Gray line tour bus for more detailed information about the city. I will have you all covered what to see in NYC. Hop in hop out grayline tour is a must for the first time visitor together with the circle line cruises.... More
