I don't regret taking this tour because it was a nice way to get pictures of the Statue and the skyline; however, the tour was way overcrowded and do not take this trip if you get seasick easily.

I definitely won't do this tour again ever. Wasted a lot of time. Huge lines, no order or organization to board. Everyone was just trying to get in. Bad experience. This tour is overpriced for what it offers. Nice views of the city and Statue...More
