Great mini-vacation! Beautiful scenery, a boat ride, and German food. Only downside was the ride back sitting next to a large group of drunk people.

Great time on the boat! No liquor on the way there because it can't be served before noon on sunday. But that was ok. We listened to the tour guide and the trip was very scenic and beautiful. The festival was fun! Not too crowded. Each stand...continued

I attended this event on 9/29. When I arrived to pick up the tickets I was advised that they might be a problem docking at Bear Mountain. The staff was very helpful and everything was resolved. So I went on the trip with my friends. We had a...continued

I enjoyed myself - good beer and the band was pretty good. But I think they could have done a much better job with the food. And more time at Bear Mt. would have been nice.

I really enjoyed this trip to Bear Mountain but would have liked to stay an hour longer but the boat was leaving at 3:00 p.m. to make the return trip. The weather was perfect. It is definitely worth the trip.

I rounded up several of my friends (who previously wrote) to take this bear Mt cruise. Although the cruise itself was sufficient, we all agreed that the prices were very deceptive.

We tried to sign up for the discounted tix but were told all...continued

I thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the Bear Mountain Oktoberfest. It was a pleasant ride up the Hudson. The Circle Line staff was very nice and helpful.

I thought the cruise was a great idea for a Sunday. We were lucky that the weather held out too. I am not a big fan of German food/culture so could have done without that and would have been very happy just visiting Bear Mountain and all it has...continued

I was super excited for this trip. In reading the reviews, people seemed to all bring a picnic due to insanely expensive food/drink on the boat. I brought a bunch of fruit and cheese and a few beers. There is no alcohol allowed to be brought on...continued

It was a beautiful trip up and down the Hudson. A great way to leave the city for the day! Octoberfest was fun, and Bear Mountain itself is gorgeous and a lovely spot to spend the afternoon. My only complaints would be I wish the boat ride was...continued

It was a great event! The tour guide was very knowledgable, he knew a lot of interesting details about NYC and was very friendly. The Oktoberfest was great: good food, good beer, beautiful place! Nice way to get out of town for a day!
It was a...continued

It was a nightmare. Packed like sardines. People screaming at each other that's my seat. No it's my seat. And on and on til I finally had to call security who didn't show until 10 minutes later. I finally paid 25 bucks for an upgrade because...continued

Literally an all day event! Set sail at promptly 9am and didn't return until about 6pm. While sailing each way, there was a tour guide giving us historical information about New York. There is also food and beverages on board if you are hungry...continued
