This was a very informative and enjoyable cruise. The AIA guides were very knowledgeable, though one female guide on the June 26th cruise was inaudible and seemed tentative about the facts. The other two guides were very good. I would highly...continued

The experience was very good but it was rushed. There is so much interesting information; the boat could have gone at a slower pace around the lower tip of Manhattan. The architect was excellent.

Very interesting experience. The architect who guided us was very knowledgeable. Great day! Only 1 negative was the food that was served but it didn’t take away from the day.

We really loved the tour. It was a beautiful boat and the crew couldn't have been nicer. Delicious snacks and architects, sorry I forgot their names, were very informative. Great view of the statue of Liberty and surrounding area buildings.

A comfortable, and very well narrated ride. Circumnavagating Manhatten is exciting even for native New Yorkers.

The crew and staff are first rate.

An excellent tour on a nice boat. Great views information provided by the tour guide who is an architect and was also nice that first round of drinks and some snacks were provided. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Delightful afternoon! Sailing around the Manhattan island gives you a whole other perspective of NYC. The ship is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. The narrator was himself an architect and extremely knowledgable and we could ask him...continued
