How was your experience?
I bought the tickets and took my 3 year old son, 9 year old daughter, and husband. At first we didn't know what to expect. We took the printout to the ticket booth and it took about 20 minutes to process the tickets. We then found out we would be riding on the Zephyr instead of the water taxi which I was actually excited about. We were on the line for about 1/2 hour and then boarded. It was pleasantly air-conditioned and there was plenty of room. They even offered beverages and food for purchase. My family and I enjoyed the tour very much. The staff was friendly, the tour guide was comical, and we saw the statue of liberty and many other things very close up. I am a New Yorker but I learned a lot of info that I did not know about my city. My kids loved sightseeing and just being on the boat was a thrill to them. I highly recommend this tour for all. It is an excellent hour and a half escape from the loud city life.
