What a great way to spend an afternoon in NYC. My husband and I chose this cruise to celebrate my 30th birthday, and we had our friends join us. We loved it! The cruise goes all the way around the island! I live in Inwood and I loved being able to...continued

This was such a pleasant experience. Not only was the wine tasting fun, but I underestimated how spectacular it would be to travel around Manhattan and see the skyline from a new perspective. The wine and tapas were tasty. My only suggestion would...continued

The boat ride and wine tasting was wonderful... from start to finish. Was a little disappointed we only did the bottom 1/2 of the island (another reviewer had said you went all the way around)... was looking forward to that but perhaps route is...continued

The wine tasting was amazing! I was a little skeptical at first because you just never know with these things. But it was a very intimate crowd- about 20 ppl. The wines/cheeses were great and loved the sparkly vino they gave you to welcome you on...continued

The presentation and the wine were very good. I just think they could have added a little more tapas.

You were also able to purchase bottles of wine for $20.00 which was a reasonable price.

I would do it again.

This is my second wine tasting cruise on the Manhattan and it was just as much fun with my adult daughter, for a special early Mother's Day celebration, as it was with a date two years ago. It was full but not crowded, the wine expert could always...continued

Absolutely lovely.... I knew the yacht was stylish and comfortable from a previous trip, but I didn't know that the presentation would be so good. The wine expert was entertaining and informative, the wines themselves were great, and the cheeses...continued

was a very windy day, but the skipper took us to the other side of the Hudson, where is was much calmer. The staff was great, we had plenty of wine, and the cheeses matched perfectly! Our table had more than enough food, but I noticed some tables...continued

I bought tickets for myself and my father who was up visiting from the south. The crew was friendly, the snacks and wine were good, and the boat was beautiful. I wouldn't say I walked away with a deeper knowledge of wine, but this was a fun...continued

The wines were delicious with a great variety....from a sparkling Pinot Noir to a Pinot that Wendy had just brought back from Italy. The cheeses were just as good and each were a perfect pairing. It was an evening cruise and the lights of...continued

My boyfriend and I had a great time at this event. The host was great and seeing Manhattan at night from the water is always a treat.

Simply put, the wine tasting and cruise made for a poor "pairing". The boat is beautiful. The scenery on this 28 mile journey - including some 30 bridges) was incredible. Lived here my whole life here and never saw the city this way. A little...continued

And a special bravo to Wendy, the knowledgeable and fun wine tasting guide.
