Excellent tour. We enjoyed it totally & the excellent weather of course contributed to that. Only 1 snag, was that the box office @ the Pier we had to wait for about 20mins to get our tickets. The cruise tour was very informative, the guide was...continued

Great tour! Our narrator, Lee, was amazing. He knew an incredible number of facts about NYC, and made them really fun to listen to. The captain allowed our grandsons to "drive" the boat, and they were thrilled. Definitely worth the money and...continued

This was, without a doubt, the worst tour I have ever been on. The fault was not directly the tour operator's, but rather the fact that on board the boat were perhaps 60-70 Korean tourists, both adults and children, who had not the least interest...continued

The Tour was great, the guide was engaging and despite the cold weather it was nice to be out on the water and learn about NYC. HOWEVER - Goldstar's part in this event was irksome. When we went to get the tickets for our 1:00pm tour they said it...continued

This was a ton of fun, and would be a great activity to take guests from out of town. As New Yorkers, we enjoyed it too! Our guide was great - informative, fun, and cool. One of the other boat guys took our picture for us, and took the time to...continued

The trip was interesting and the naration was very good. They let you stand on the front bow at a good speed which added to the enjoyment. However the company did not honor the goldstar reservation and we had to take a later tour. Be careful and...continued

Thanks Goldstar! I had invited my friends from Canada to visit NYC. The water taxi was my gift to them. IT was the most amazing gift they can think of. I was with them, I loved the whole experience, it was a wonderful sight of New Jersey, New...continued

The tour guide is enthusiastic, polite, answers questions and was extremely into the tour. Allowed us alot of time for pictures and let a child "drive" the boat for some time. Great deal for the money.

Went Saturday. It was extremely windy, but the tour went on anyway. The tour was very well done. Excellent background information on the history of the city and harbor. It got quite crowded up on top of the deck with numerous people standing. ...continued

The boat ride was great. Wonderful views. The tour guide was a real negative. Too loud, too preachy, too over-the-top. He basically never shut up...it was better when he took a break and they played some music. If he told us once that he was an...continued
