I booked the Circle Line Tour in New York through British Airways using some of my Avios points. I took my printed voucher to the ticket office on Pier 83 and got a ticket in exchange. That went really smooth and I would do it again that way. As I did not have much time, I booked the short, 75... More

We had a really good cruise - make sure you get there early because the line starts forming an hour before departure. It was a sunny day so we sat up top - the commentary was loud enough to hear and he knew his stuff. we learned a lot about NY that day and got some great views of Manhattan... More

It was a rainy day at South Seaport when we made our way to the pier to take the Circle Line boat ride to see the Statue of Liberty. A pity about the weather as we could not get very good views and photos of the Statue of Liberty. As we were on a tight schedule (on a city day... More

We took the full circle cruise around Manhattan. About a 3 hour trip. We saw and learned a lot about NYC. The trip didn't seem so long because the guide, David, was wonderful! He's full of interesting tidbits and lots of history. Great sense of humor and presentation kept us fully engaged the entire trip. He is definitely an asset... More

There is no doubt that David knew what he was talking about, and that he works to keep his presentation current. However, we also have to admit that he had already worn a bit thin before we even left the dock. David compared himself to a national newscaster and a recently deceased comedian (by names!) which turned us off. Further,... More

We took the 2.5 hour tour. I would not rush to do it again anytime soon, but definitely a nice tour for both tourist and locals. The narration was comprehensive and interesting. The boat seating was comfortable. If you wanted to upgrade they had an inside section that was air conditioned and had very large windows. We chose to sit... More

Very fun cruise around mid and lower Manhattan. We took our 3 and 6 year olds and they enjoyed the Statue of Liberty view this tour gives as well as the Empire State Building and WTC1. If you want the best seats you'll have to be there an hour early. Boarding starts 45 minutes prior to the listed departure. The... More

This is a fantastic way to see the Statue of Liberty on a 1 hour cruise. You get a fantastic view of Manhattan which is also really informative. There is plenty of time to take photos too!

Great way to see the lower section of Manhattan, Ellis Island and circle around the Statue of Liberty. Excellent guide who filled us I with lots of historical info. Be prepared for people to accidentally "photo bomb" your pics. (Some tourists seem to have trouble with boundaries.) Go on a good weather day.

We decided to take the hour long cruise to see as much as we could in one go and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a glorious day which probably helped along with the cruise guide who talked us through everything but also had everyone laughing at some of his observations. He is definitely an asset to them. The boat cruises... More
