“Fantastic Family Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I and our 3 kids and good friends with their 2 kids had an incredible time last Thursday. Weather was perfect, wind was favorable, beer was cold, captain and crew welcoming and fun! The captain even let our kids "drive" the boat.

We would highly recommend this for families or really anyone for a great afternoon. It was the highlight of our whole trip.

Thanks America 2.0!

“highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We received a gift certificate for our sailing cruise from our daughter for Christmas, and used it on 6/22/13. It was a very good experience. The trip was beautiful and it was a breezy evening, so we went pretty fast, so it was pretty exciting at times. You go right out to the Statue of Liberty, which is very nice, and the New York skyline is spectacular. The boat is pretty crowded, so it's not a good idea to bring a meal on board. foget that idea-- you would have to eat it on your lap. There is plenty of beer and wine, and the crew is extremely professional and friendly. I highly recommend this trip. We will do it again sometime.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

By far, the coolest thing I've ever done in NYC! It was a perfect NY day! We had originally planned on one of those other sight seeing boat tours but opted for this instead. NO REGRETS! Captain Andrew and his staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Even if you're a local, I highly recommend!

“Architectural Tour is Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Two guides from the American Institute of Architecture take turns telling you about the history of NYC's development, using the round-the-island trip as a chance to explain everything from commercial development to residential development to parks to bridges to the impacts (and lessons) of Super Storm Sandy. It was a 2 3/4 hour college level course with the city providing the visual aides. And meanwhile the friendly and efficient crew of Classic Harbor Line is busy keeping you well juiced and well fed. Forget the Circle Line -- if you want to learn something and be in an uncrowded, very pleasant environment, take this boat tour around Manhattan.

“Nice cruise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

It is a really nice cruise allowing for great pics both from Hudson and East River.
However, it can get way better should the crew smile more, the beers are less expensive
and the music less loud and more contemporary. Overall, a good experience.
