I was quite scared to be honest after reading so many not good reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was a very nice tour and we saw the Statue of Liberty very well as well as the skyline. Very nice tour guide too. We had to wait around an hour though before boarding so put that in your preparation time. All in all, you get what you pay for!

If you want to view the harbour from the "crown" the bookings are required a minimum of months beforehand because of the limited size. The track around the statute has stations where the history is narrated. A pleasant experience.

This tour to see the Statue of Liberty was included as a part of a "Hop on Hop Off" bus tour we purchased. They pack quite a few people on the boat, but they are very lenient about where they allow you to sit. Mikey, the tour guide, was knowledgeable and provided lots of information. We passed a 100 million dollar yacht that was docked on the Hudson and had great views of the city skyline. My only complaint was that the dock was so far down the pier, but buses were provided to shuttle you back and forth.

Very poor, wouldn't leave any stars if there was an option. Waited over an hour past scheduled departure time in -5oc temperature with very poor communication from staff for the boat to arrive, to then be told that the restrooms on board were also out of order. Cruise longer than advertised we couldn't even get on the boat as had prior appointment for what was meant to be special birthday occasion. Would not recommend this company at all! Refund policy doesnt exist either so beware!

When we walked into Battery Park, we were immediately and aggressively approached by a few men who seemed to be there to help direct us in where to go to the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. They told us there was a 3 hour wait for the regular trip, but they offered a nice 1 hour express trip without any waiting.
One of the extremely friendly salesman ran myself and my 3 adult children over to the front of the bus, and made us believe he was hurrying to get us on this last bus to the marina for the next ride. He hurriedly had me pay 150.00 for the 4 of us...then after I signed the credit card info,he immediately changed his whole demenor . I then proceeded to get onto the bus and he said " Whoa Whoa whoa... you need to wait for the next bus!!!"
And would not let me board.He told us another bus should be coming in 10-20 minutes and we could take that one instead.
An HOUR later the next bus came to take us to the dock to the boat..., as we were about to get on we were told the bus was full and we would have to catch the NEXT ONE !!
I wanted my money back at this point and they just ignored me and said " the bus will be here in 20 minutes" then disappeared again. There was now about 20 of us waiting.
Once the bus finally came back it took us to a sketchy old marina where the boat was. It was dirty and unkept. The bridge walking into the boat was dangerous, being held by a guy with a rope Bathrooms were disgustingly filthy. There was no room left inside on the overcrowded boat so we had to sit outside on the top in 30 degree weather.
We then had to wait another 45 minutes for the bus to go back and get another load of poor souls to pile on the already overcrowded boat.
Once we took off and the tour guide starting speaking he didn't speak clearly at all or make a lot of sense. At one point he was saying how if guys want to get girls in NYC, they have to tell them they have pretty hair... if girls want to get a guy they should look at their sneakers and say your shoes are "hot"... what?!?
The speakers kept breaking up so you could make out a few sentences he said and then it would cut out again.
The hour long ride went a torturing 50 minutes,yet it took up to 4 hours and most of our day in disappointment and in frustration . What a WASTE OF SO MUCH TIME AND SO MUCH MONEY!!!AWFUL!!!!

I was bombarded by the water tours reps as soon as I came out of the station at Bowling Green. They insisted the tour included headphones and docked on staton island and the statute of Liberty. We clarified this as we were meeting family there and they were adamant we could get off and get on another boat later as they ran every 30mins. They said there was free hot drinks and doughnuts. However all of this information was false. The coach dropped us in a very precarious area, there was no complimentary drinks or food and the tour did not stop anywhere just cruised up and down the river. The guide (Tony) was racist and sexist and made horrendous comments about all NY women being fat and ugly, white women being loose and suggested that NY men were sleazy and planning to rob you. The tour was appalling. We had to wait for 40mins for the coach to pick us up. The whole trip was a waste of time and money considering other tours offer a trip there for $18 and you get to look around the islands. I would never recommend this trip to anyone.

This is my last time booking through this site. I purchased two tickets to the NYC Statue of Liberty cruise for one day. The cruise was canceled due to the weather (it was lightly snowing). I only know of the cancellation because I called the tour provider on the day of the cruise -- I received no notification of cancellation from Trip Advisor. The lady who answered the phone at New York Water Tours (tour provider) told me there would be no refunds as the ticket was nonrefundable. They said to contact Trip Advisor with any further refund questions. I went to the Trip Advisor site to try to contact customer support. No one answers the phone. Trip Advisor simply directs you to their online help center where you can input your question and theoretically get an answer. The information I seek does not appear, and there does not appear to be any reasonably efficient way to request a refund or to speak to a live person. This has been a frustrating experience. I was leaving New York and could not simply use the tickets another day.

Wesley was fantastic tour guide, really personable and informative and mixed up the tour with personal recommendations in addition to his knowledge and history of the sights. This trip was included with my 2 day ticket with TourView hop-on-and-off bus and was definitely a highlight of my time here so far, making the 2 day ticket well worth the extra money!

Not real impressed with anybody who while leading a tour of our Statue of Liberty to numerous visiting tourists from foreign nations, slams our president over and over. If he doesn't like our president that's his right but he shouldn't be using his job as a podium to air his thoughts. There were several other American tourists in my general vicinity who were equally disturbed by this anti political diatribe. Any business that would allow this is equally disgusting in my mind. I wouldn't recommend this outfit to anyone.
