Beautiful day, so the tour was in the groove. The only problem was that the microphone was a bit too loud for those of us outside. It would have been good to get a printed list of the architects, the buildings, a map, and a short history. This...continued

Beautiful, spacious, and comfortable vessel with attentive and kind staff. Lots of very interesting information about New York and New Jersey and wonderful views of Manhattan from many perspectives.

I have lived in the NYC area my whole life, but never appreciated the City and its architecture as much as after having gone on the Architecture Tour. The architect leading the tour was knowledgeable and entertaining. The trip around the Island...continued

I thought I knew Manhattan -- the pieces at least -- but this event put it all together in a way I had never imagined. It was obvious the AIA guide had a deep knowledge of NYC architecture, topography and historical developments and was never at...continued

I've lived in NYC for ten years and in the area for 25 more but never tire of taking select guided tours. This one is the best of NYC boat trips. The itinerary is well planned. The architect giving the narrative was excellent and we could...continued

It was beyond spectacular!! The huge windows on the boat afforded a fantastic view although you're permitted to be outside on deck, which I did for most of the tour. The tour guide/historian (if I recall, his name is Bob) was excellent. He...continued

My husband and I are in the city often and especially enjoyed this tour. It's a great way to see the architecture on the entire island of Manhattan and it's bridges. It was a beautiful day to be on the water, the guide was informative, the staff...continued

My second time on the tour and, like the first, it did not disappoint. John, our guide, very knowledgeable and the crew very attentive. The only downside was the preponderance of tour goers more interested in the bar than in listening to...continued

Not just for tourists! I'm a NYC local and really enjoyed this unique perspective of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. The architect on board was narrating almost non-stop for 2 hours and 45 minutes... it was terrific and interesting. I...continued

The architect was great, very informative with a good clear voice and lots of anecdotes and humor. It's almost 3 hrs but there was so much architecture as well many bridges along the route to see and hear about . Overall a Great Experience.

The boat, Manhattan, is intimate, well-maintained, and evokes a bygone era compared to the much larger vessels of current construction. Kyle, the AIA representative, was extremely informative and receptive to questions. A complimentary wine or...continued
