Went on the jazz cruise which was very enjoyable. The water was a bit choppy so someone who gets motion sickness might want to caution before boarding.

My husband and I love architecture tours (especially when they are on a boat) so this was the perfect experience for us! They take you around the whole island of Manhattan and the architect we had was so knowledgeable! He was able to answer anyone’s questions about any building or bridge with some light comedy thrown in there as well! Tips for future riders: try to sit in the right side if you want to sit down the entire time. We had slightly interrupted views on the left side because of the people who sat on the opposite side. However, the boat has huge windows and you are able to get up and go outside to the front of the boat if you wanted a better view/picture. Also, first drink was complementary on them! Must do in NYC especially if first visit.

Great views of Manhattan. Did not completly hear all the stories because the audio was difficult. Despite that, it was worth it.
