Pros: The ride up was pleasant, the scenery was great and the info provided by the boat tour guide was very interesting. The park was very pretty. Live band was good. I didn't have to drive and deal with traffic.

Food was ok.

Cons: I...continued

Review from Will MacAdam

This has become a yearly tradition for me and my friends. This year we invited two more people who had an absolutely splendid time. We brought a picnic, cause it ain't the Oktoberfest per se, it's the sublime boat ride which is the main selling...continued

Review from Lisa Frank

We didn't have very nice weather, so it was misty the whole ride. The tour guide was funny, and we enjoyed what he had to say. The boat itself was nice and the bathrooms were easily accessible. The dock had flooded due to rain, and we had to cross...continued

We had a lovely day for a cruise up the Hudson. The guide was very informative. Octoberfest was delightful. We ate on the lake watching the ducks play, the children feed them and the dogs wishing they could jump in too. The music was different and...continued

Boat ride was nice even though it was overcast. Scenery is beautiful. Seating on the boat is very uncomfortable as they are the cheap plastic foldaway chairs. Bring Snacks for the almost 3 hour ride. Wear comfortable shoes/sneakers as its a hike...continued

Review from Pat Ahaesy

Circle Line did a very good job. We loved the informational tidbits that your guide gave on the trip up to Bear Mountain.
The Oktoberfest was cute, especially the German folk style band. Food was food, too. Although I didn't have any beer, most...continued

Review from Samantha Raye

I had a really great time and got very lucky with the weather. The only thing I didn't realize was that this was going to be a bit of a tour boat. As a result, there was a tour guide speaking over loud speakers throughout the trip to Bear...continued

Review from gina caulfield

I had my birthday party in conjunction with this event and we had a lovely time. The cruise itself is great and the festival while lacking in really good food was pretty fun and just being the park by the lake was nice.

Review from ML

It was a very nice trip! However, it is a very short time before departure. It's better to book the hotel for a night and comeback the next day with the cruise.
