It was so good. The "tour guide" was so informed and interesting and I learned a lot. Even though I live in NYC, I got to see it from a totally different vantage point and it was beautiful.

It would have been a great experience if your sound system wasn't quite so loud. Also, the guide didn't shut up for more than a minute. His pace was frenetic which didn't allow me to absorb/retain any information therefore the trip frenetic as...continued

Just ok. Little was said about the buildings. Just the name and architect. Would have liked more about some of the buildings. Got a little boring.

My husband and I had a lovely time. It was extremely informative and everyone on the boat were so professional. I cant wait to do it again with my adult children who are structural engineers. I just love New York!!!

My husband and I plus another couple loved the tour. What a great way to see the island of Manhattan! Kyle was our Architectural tour guide - he's amazing. Thanks to the crew and to Kyle for a special afternoon.

Overall, a great experience (and I'm picky). A beautiful boat, great crew, complimentary non-alcoholic drinks (first round of alcoholic on them too), decent snacks. Make sure your weather looks good, then definitely book. Highly recommend.

The boat was lovely, making for a personal experience. Our docent was amazing, knowledgable and friendly. He spoke without notes for the entire journey. The suppor staff were also professional.

The cruise was very informative and interesting. The crew was very friendly as well. I wish the boat had a speaker placed near the bow so the AIA representative could be more clearly heard above people speaking and other noises. Otherwise, it...continued

The event, a tour circumnavigating Manhattan Island, with an AIA architectural historian in tow to explain all things man-made, was stupendous. The angled vista of Manhattan, from downtown to the Cloisters, from the unattractive old industrial...continued

The member of the AIA who led the tour was superb. His knowledge of the buildings and other structures we looked at seemed limitless.

The purchase through goldstar was seemless and the booth for Classic Harbor Line had my and my wife's names for 'will-call.' The cruise was spectacular with tons of interesting information. The boat stopped by the Statue of Liberty for a bit for...continued
