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

The cruise was delightful with a lovely brunch and a cocktail. The boat is pretty and was decorated with fall flowers. The lecture was first rate and I learned many things I didn't know although I have lived in NYC for over 50 years.

The guide was very bland. The sights were on the left side and right side of the boat. The guide did not give us time to turn our heads to the passing sight. My neck was aching from turning. The guide should hsve a better way of showcasing the...continued

The tour was both relaxing and informative - really a different view of manhattan, and just so much you never get to see from the street. The guides were really enthusiastic and kept thing interesting.

This is the same route which the more popular boatride around Manhattan takes, but having taken that trip with visiting relatives several months back, I can report that this tour is far superior. Even if it costs a little more (and it doesn't...continued

This was fabulous! The tour circled the island of Manhattan and pointed out the sites (famous and not-so-famous). The guide knew so much about the sites, history, architectural significance, etc. The buffet was great also!

A perfect outing! We had good weather but the cabin is enclosed with large windows so a little rain wouldn't hamper this trip.

I'm close to NYC and went with someone that lives in the city & we both thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The AIA host...continued

A very informative event. I am not that fond of bridges, so less information on bridges and more on the buildings would have been preferable for me. The ride was extremely smooth
