A great way to see the sights of New York. Luckily for us the weather was fantastic; got slightly sun burnt on the 2.5hour full cruise. A nice cold beer compensated though. Would really recommend!

We took the full cruise. I prebooled the tickets 3 months in advance but the weather was very poor on the day I selected. The commentary mostly made up for this and still had some great views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Maybe it was the weather which meant the kids were confined to their seated mostly... More

We booked on this tour and it exceeded our expectations. Dave the tour guide was brilliant and he made the tour as great as it was. There was lots of information and we saw all the sights. It was a good way to see New York City from outside the city. It was rainy and windy but it was still... More

Great views and picture opportunities, Michael the Gide was very good but spoke a bit to fast to understand in some places! Overall well worth the money.

Our cruise was a bit of a mixed bag. We booked in the morning in person for the longest and expensive 3pm full tour and were advised to arrive at 2.30 which we did. We and many others left in a line till just past 3pm with little information about where exactly to go. It was an uncomfortable wait as... More

I did the Circle Line tour as part of the New York Pass (get the New York Pass) The tour was excellent, so many good views. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Learned a little bit about New York and got lots of good photos. I would recommend this tour for sure.

Thank you to Michael our excellent guide. Great views of the city and the Statue of Liberty. Avoid the 2 hour queues of the tour where you get off the boat!

Yes, it is tourist-y. Yes, it is cliche. BUT our guide was quite good and the views are truly spectacular. It is great to do at the beginning of a visit, because you orient yourself to the city in the most outstanding way possible. Worth it

The Circle Line river cruise was booked through this shocking company 2 months prior to arriving in New York. We had booked a specific time and date for the cruise as we were only going to be in New York for 4 days. On arriving at the circle line cruise check in desk to collect our tickets we were informed... More
