We had a ball! We were originally disappointed because it was raining. But once we got on the boat and took our seats, we enjoyed ourselves from beginning to end. The host was highly energetic and provided so many fun facts about NYC & NJ. He...continued

This was a beautiful thing to do. I had a friend visiting from Louisiana and it was a perfect way for her to get an idea of what Manhattan was all about from the perimeter. A great night, informative, fun and patriotic. A must do!

If you sign up for this event beware! If you have any experience like ours you might not get what you think you paid for! I signed up earlier in the week for a 7:45 PM boat cruise and was really looking forward to seeing the sunset with my...continued

The cruise was a nice way to spend part of the evening even for newyorkers. Beautiful weather really helps. We had no problems getting the tickets with Goldstar confirmation.
Showing up early and getting in line to board really pays off- there...continued

The tour actually begins at 7:45-8:00, boarding starts at 7:30, but even though it isn't a full 90-minutes, but more like 60, the sites are AMAZING and it is WELL worth it! The crew is fun, and the cruise goes much higher than Lower Manhattan, so...continued

I wish I could rate this accordingly… but unfortunately I can’t. We picked up our tickets at 7:20pm. We saw the boat; the dock was empty so we thought we had time to go in to use the restroom in one of the restaurants on the pier. It was...continued

The event itself was fine-- but really only b/c of the view. The views are somewhat mitigated by the drunk tour guide you are trying to block out who is ranting about his wife, and the importance of reading to your kids. With that said, he did...continued

This event was fun. Tickets were easy to get at the Circle Line Booth which was only a few yards away from the Water Taxi meeting place. This is the second time I have used Goldstar and so far getting the tickets has been extremely easy.
It got a...continued

It was a great tour of the city. The crew was so friendly. George was our guide - he was high energy and knowledgeable. We got there at 7:00 PM for a 7:45 sailing. We had to wait on line to pick up the tickets and then you line up for boarding....continued

A pleasant boat ride with a nice sunset and beautiful night skyline. The tour guide identifed some of the locations and buildings, and the statue of liberty is amazing up close.
The boat is not much, it has some outdoor seats and standing room,...continued

Had a great time, if the weather's good there's no better way to spend some time. Overpriced bar, but hey, it's NYC!

My boyfriend and I loved the Water Taxi Sunset Cruise! The first half or so was a guided tour and the rest was just sailing around Manhattan listening to music. It's a great opportunity to see the city from a different perspective, and you also...continued

Our tour guide, Lee, was amazing. I happened to have him as a tour guide last year on a daytime cruise, and he has not lost one bit of his enthusiasm. The tour included a free glass of champagne, beer, or wine, which was a nice surprise. The...continued

Great experience. Get there early so you can sit upstairs on the right side of the boat.

Great experience even for a New Yorker. Went with our 3 grandchildren 4, 7 & 8 who were visiting from Chicago. The 4 year old and 7 year old thought it was awesome. Great views, top deck comfortable on a really hot evening and as always the...continued

We had a ball taking my aunties who had never been to new York before and it was their dream to see the statue of liberty. The tour covers all the interesting sights and the boat is very comfortable
