A picture perfect afternoon. The guide was excellent. Lots of interesting anecdotes and open to questions. Our fellow passengers were from all over the world and gave another perspective. The weather was clear and sunny which didn't hurt at all!

Went on a cold and cloudy day, but it was still a great experience. Beautiful comfortable vessel; having a architect as a guide made it a quality experience in every way. Went on a friend's recommendation and it exceeded my expectations.

Went on the tour with out-of-town guests and we agree that of all the New York City activities on our list, the AIA tour was the most fun. I've lived in New York for decades and never saw the entire perimeter from the river before. What a great...continued

Day was perfect. Would not be the greatest on a wet day because boat outside seating is better than inside.
Tip: Sit on the...continued
