Do you ever wonder what this building is called or when that bridge was built? This is the tour to find out. Great way to learn about NYC.

Great way to see the entire perimeter of manhattan island and it's neighbors. Narrated by an architect the entire 2 1/2 hrs. Sitting outside the cabin is the best, but be prepared for it to be much windier & colder than being on land.

Overall a nice little cruise but it drags on toward the end. Most of the things you want to see are in the 1st hour of the 2.75 hour trip. The inside can get a little warm if the sun is shining, so slide open one of the windows to get a breeze....continued

The yacht, the commentator and the tour was five star but the service was less than desirable. I came hungry and was not able to purchase food. When the light refreshments were served, the crowd bum-rushed the table. When I got there a few...continued

This is a very informative 3 hour tour around Manhattan island with a complimentry glass of wine, cocktail or beer and fruit and cheese for a snack. I am a native New Yorker and I found this cruise amazingly enjoyable.

We've been on tens, if not hundreds, of architectural and historical tours, in NY, Chicago, LA, and a number of other cities -- mostly walking tours, but a few by boat.

Perhaps it was the fact that the two guides/docents are new to this kind...continued
