This is a total scam. You are told that the shuttle will be 5 minutes but beware. They only leave when they have enough people for the boat. They never tell you that. Nor do they say the boat runs from New Jersey. Miles away. My wife and I demanded a refund but were sworn at, physically threatened and told to go back to our country. Ridiculous. Disgraceful.

Went on Liberty Express cruise the other day and enjoyed the cruise. Staff were friendly and helpful and guide was fantastic. Lovely way to see the statue, Brooklyn Bridge and city from the river with great close photo opportunities. Very informative guide provided great commentary. After seeing what is on offer at Battery Park this cruise was much nicer and affordable. Lovely restaurant at the pier too. Definitely go on this cruise. Note: Get snacks before boarding as no snacks on board as advertised.

I really enjoyed the tour, really informative and great views of the city and Statue of Liberty. There was quite a wait in the queue which we weren’t advised of however.

Our Statute of Liberty boat tour was a late minute decision on a Wednesday morning, so it exceeded my expectations. Yes, the guy who sold us tickets worked on commission, so he over-promised regarding the wait time. That was frustrating. But, Ms. Brown and the tour guide on the boat were great. And there was plenty space inside and out to move about and take pictures.

These guys are the biggest scammers. They tell you that there is a 2 hr security clearance to pass once you get to the statue of Liberty. Since no one wants to wait, they automatically hook you into the quick 1 hour tour. Like other reviews, you get shuttled to the pier and then bake in the sun waiting for your turn. Once you're on the boat after an hour, you are not guaranteed a good viewing area. When we stopped at the statue of Liberty, there was no 2 hr waiting line and people were allowed to stand below the pedestal and take photos yet the guy in the blue shirt said no one is allowed to stand below the pedestal without going online and reserving tickets. These guys are liars. I have been to the statue of Liberty in 2007 and there has never been an issue of this kind. They went from $40 per adult to $35 and the kids under 12 was $25. They try to sell photos once you're on the boat since they know we don't have proper viewing areas. Once we got off the boat, the one shuttle down was broken down apparently. Another old black crappy bus showed up and took about 60 of us.
