“Enjoyable cruise”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I had never taken a boat cruise in NYC before and decided on the Architectural Cruise around Manhattan. This was a little more civilized that some of those cruises that are jam packed with people. Well worth the price for a more intimate setting. Our tour guide was an architect who provided us with oodles of fascinating information. A bonus was the light buffet and the glass of wine or beer included in the price. Lots of great photo opportunities.

“A Don't Miss, Unique Tour that Circles Manhattan as It Informs”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

After decades of living in NYC, and decades of visiting, this was one of the very smartest entertainment/educational venues I have ever experienced. The Manhattan skyline changes constantly and the knowledgeable moderator keep us informed of building of note from the past as well as those being built now. This tour goes around the entire island so you see much more, even learning about the complex bridge systems, than the usual tip of the island boat tour. The tour is on an elegant wooden ship where wine, coffee and such are served as a lovely buffet of fresh fruit, breads and cheeses. Docks right next to a charming park with a lovely carrousel so don't miss this added treat when you disembark.

“A great way to see the sights of NYC”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I did the Sunset Champagne Cruise on the "Manhattan" while on our first visit to NYC. The cruise was lightly narrated which was great, meaning we got to learn a little about the sights we were cruising past while also being able to talk amongst ourselves. It was lovely to see the city light up as dusk while sipping on champagne, would highly recommend!

Best way to appreciate the architecture around the island, we loved NYC and have visited numerous times before and we really liked to see this way. The accommodations were comfortable indoor with large windows and with outdoor area, sure we will be come back.
