The ride up the Hudson was very nice. They should have allowed more time on Bear Mountain. Three hours isn't enough if you really want to enjoy the Oktoberfest and stop off at the zoo and museums on the way back down.

The ride was pleasant and scenic on a beautiful Saturday (9/25). However, the tour guide was offering unwanted commentary the entire trip up, even hushing people's conversations. Some people brought their own drinks, but it seems glass bottles...continued

The trip was very enjoyable. The boat was clean and staff very friendly. The cruise up was very relaxing. The colors as of 10/14 are no way near peak season, give it two to more three weeks. Well worth the trip, Oktoberfest a very little bit...continued

This is an enjoyable event whether you are a tourist or a New Yorker (as I am). It was a beautiful scenic ride up the Hudson. The boat offered drinks, food and nice "background" music. The guide was excellent and provided interesting...continued

This is the second year my friends and I took the Circle Line up to Oktoberfest and it was just as much fun! This is a great weekend trip to take during the fall.

This was much fun. Having read other reviews - we had a hearty breakfast so we didn' get hungry until we got there. The weather was excellent - summer all the way :). The festival itself was very small - but cute - beer was good. All around we...continued

We enjoyed this cruise. It was a beautiful day. The Circle Line staff was professional, organized and very patient, especially on the return when some of the guests had too much to drink.

Weather was perfect. Views were great. Announcer was very informative. Bear Mountain area was very nice. Oktoberfest was ok. Bring your own lunch. Line was way too long. Price was right. Any more cost wouldn't have been worth it.

Went with friends and had a great time! Nice, relaxed day. Luckily weather was nice. Going we sat upstairs outside on the boat. The wind made it quite on the cooler side. Wished I'd brought a little warmer jacket. The ride there was about 2...continued
