Suzanne

It was a great introduction to the city of New York. Sailing around Manhattan gives the tourist a unique opportunity to place all ...the landmarks and boroughs and the actual geography - something which no amount of reading guidebooks and poring over maps can give you. more

Anthony

The trip was informative and interesting. Sit on the left side of the boat as you face the front as most sights are to the left.

Peter

Can't think of a better way too see the sights - it was great value for money

Stephanie

we went on this 3hr cruise on 14th december 10,from start to finish we were well looked after,outside it was freezing but the ship... was very comfortable and nice and warm.the cruise itself was great,we saw loads of things we havnt ssen before(we have been 8 times)and the information given by the guide was brilliant,a real eye opener.i woiuld say anybody visiting new york should go on this trip,worth every penny.thank you KEITH CUNNINGHAM,MANCHESTER.ENGLAND. more

Janet

We actually did the 2 hour, half-island cruise, and it was perfect! We saw everything we wanted to see, and it fit our schedule be...tter. more

ROBERT P

Thank you! Mister Gide was just great! It was very interesting cruise.

Anita

Your host for the cruise was excellent and passed on interesting information with with nice touches of humour. Sadly some girls in... our area were quite loud and stopped us from hearing everything. While we could of said something, you never know if it will make things worse, so we moved when we could. It might be useful if one of your team could make regular patrols to remind people to shut up and sit down. It was left to your host to remind people from time to time, but of couse he had other responsibilities. over-all a great service and great value. than you. more

David

Interesting tour and good commentary. However an outline map of Manhattan identifying the buildings described in the commentary wo...uld be very helpful and add to the enjoyment. more

William

A good way to see round the whole of Manhattan Island. The commentary was very informative and humourous. A pity it overlapped wi...th the full day tour, as that also included a truncated version of the river trip. more

Joan

Good & enjoyable cruise with a knowledgeable commentary.We saw so many varied & interesting places that would take more ti...me to see,good value. more

Jacqueline

Having pre-booked and pre-paid we were surprised and disappointed to be told that there were no seats left on our trip as they are... allocated on a first come, first served basis. more

Sally

Family of 6, good organisation, guide very good and informed us of history in funny and appealing way. The time went quick. we all... agreed this was well worth it. Would have been better if the Loop bus had waited for the passengers to disembark and have time to catch the mid town bus back up 42nd street. more
