Definitely worth the money! We went on the sunset cruise and the weather was beautiful. They get very close to the statue of liberty and stop so that you can take pictures. The tour guide was highly entertaining and gave us a poem/rap that he...continued

I went with my daughters as part of my birthday celebration. We all loved it. The tour guide was amusing. I especially enjoyed their use of music---New York themed--as we watched the city light up.

Relaxing boat ride on the water. Pretty views. Great for celebrating a special night with a significant other.

Terrific one-hour cruise at dusk on picture-perfect evening. The guide pointed out many buildings and conveyed bits of history that I -- as a born and raised New Yorker -- didn't know about. Some of the script seemed just that, however. But on...continued

The boat ride itself was lovely, but it was oversold, so if you wanted to sit on the top outside level, you had to actually stand because all the overflow people were standing on the edge and you wouldn't be able to see anything unless you stood...continued

This was a lot of fun - be sure to bring your camera for these amazing views. Also, it gets chilly at night on the water so a sweater would be a good idea too. Highly recommended!

Took my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday with a day in the city and this definately was a nice way to end the day.
It's only an hour but very relaxing and the perfect way to enjoy the NYC skyline and Lady Liberty.
Would recommend for tourists...continued

Took some family members from out of town on this. As a New Yorker myself, I have never actually seen the city this way, beautiful night!

We took the cruise on Monday night after the rain. The seats on the roof were not dry but the crew gave us paper to dry the seats off ourselves. The cruise was good 1 hour, giving us enough time to take lots of shots in front of the Statue of...continued

It was already dark when we left at 7:45 so it wasn't much of a sunset cruise, but the views of NYC at night were spectacular. Our guide George told us a lot of interesting things about the area without going overboard (he switched on music when...continued
