This was an excellent value for the 2 1/2 hour trip to Bear Mountain and back. We were very lucky that the weather ended up being lovely until the trip back when we had a real downpour. But that cleared up in time to still enjoy sitting outside...continued

I did not attend due to the dangers of Hurricane Sandy which is still raging now. Circle Line did not cancel the event. I was told by an employee up at the Octoberfest event that the dock up there at Bear Mountain was flooding. I assumed then that...continued

It states that you can not bring food onto the boat well this is not true. We did not any food and we had to buy from the concession stand that was extremely expensive while many many other people were enjoying their own snacks,food and drink. The...continued

It was nice esp when you get there. Bear Mountain is beautiful. The festival was small but the scenery was really nice. I don't think there's enough time to go hiking. Food and beer was good.

The boat is huge and crowded, so it's actually very difficult to find two seats together, making people very territorial about "saved seats" and scouting. There are so many people, the chatter is extremely loud and reminds me of lunch time in...continued

The weather was a bit cold but we brought hoodies and blankets and a ton of beer and food on the boat. Didn't spend a penny at Bear Mountain and had a great time relaxing and enjoying the walking paths

This was not what I expected. I was looking forward to a nice trip on the Hudson with foliage and good eats. It was totally opposite. A great majority of the boat trippers were totally drunk when they got on board. Too many young people getting...continued

Going up the Hudson on such a beautiful day was wonderful, however, apart from the uninspiring October Fest, the trip was also made unbearable at times by the incessant chatter of the self-appointed tour guide, who not content to bore us on the...continued

Oktoberfest Celebration this is not! I feel like I got tourist trapped! Long lines for awful food. Absolutely nothing to do. I could have gone to my local bar and had a better time. I didn't even enjoy the boat ride because it was freezing. Did...continued

A pleasant historically informative boat ride up the Hudson River, movie buffs will enjoy it as well as the tour guide loves to talk about the theater. Bring a jacket.

Went with a group of friends and we really enjoyed the boat ride to the Mountain as well as our walk on beautiful Bear Mountain. I would do this again.
