The trip was worth the money, except we picked a very cold day to travel. It would be much better to get outside for photo ops.
Great 2 hour tour around the island. Cruised past the statue of liberty, under many bridges and was able to see the city from the outside. Would recommend this.
This is a great way to see the city from a different perspective- we went with the VIP upgrade - this gave us very good seats and a server who got us our drinks to save joining the queue downstairs as well as a bag of cookies to take away with us! The guide, David, was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the sights with humour, he was quite a character. It was a very worthwhile trip, highly recommended
Great tour. Good view of the sights, good running description of them. Would recommend it to any visitor.
We loved this tour. The captain was great and as he had been working on the circle line for 15 years, there wasn't anything he didn't know.
The boat was really big and there was plenty of room to move around. I would highly recommend taking this tour. It is a great way to see NYC from the water.
Great way to look at Manhattan from all angles as this cruise goes a complete round on the river, starting from the Hudson river, to the Statue, then to the East river under the Brooklyn Bridge, up north, then on the other side on Hudson river and then back. You will get some amazing views throughout. Plus make sure to hit the bar while on the cruise. It's fun to sip a drink while Manhattan keeps showing itself in various ways to you!
Really great, informative tour - our guide Chris was fantastic, and taught us so much about 'real', authentic New York without all the 'boring stuff' you might expect. Some beautiful photo ops and we got right up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty. I would highly recommend this tour.
At least in decent weather, this is a great way to see a range of midtown, downtown, harbor and Brooklyn landmarks. Many unrivaled photo ops. Entertaining but not overly obtrusive announcements.
Excellent tour guide - perfect way to see all that NYC has to offer.
It was a picture perfect day in nyc and our tour director was very knowledgeable and entertaining. You could tell he loves nyc and the feeling rubs off on us.
A fantastic experience, a great way to see some of the famous monuments and skylines. A friendly and knowledgeable guide (Dave) to go along side the cruise, the whole experience was well organised and fun. Tip: arrive early, as they do begin to let you board the cruise a good hour before your time slot, this will allow you to get the seats that you want, as for obvious safety reasons they do not let you stand on the top deck, so once seats have gone they are gone and you will have to be seated on the lower deck. We were lucky as we were very early and got sat on the top deck which made the cruise more special.
Do the SUNSET cruise!!! Have been living in NYC for the past 6 years, and my dad visited me for the first time shortly before the holiday. We couldn't have asked for better weather- and got to see NYC by sunset and the bright lights at night- full moon and all. My dad was enchanted and I fell in love with this city all over again. From views of Jersey, meatpacking, lower manhattan and the Freedom tower to a very close swing around Lady Liberty and under the beautiful bridges of nyc and Brooklyn- We were too engrossed on the outside deck to hear much of the tour guide's spiel (one critique: I would make the speakers louder outside!) What we did hear was accurate and humorous. I appreciated the guide's pragmatic and local suggestions to visiting tourists (ie: exact change on MTA buses, don't get a cab at 12th ave, go to this diner for dinner...) who might have otherwise NOT gone off the beaten path or strayed from the safety of their guide books.
Very good tour, worth every penny- I'd go on a clear day to get the full benefit. Hell, I might go again!
A MUST for a newbie to NYC! My second time with Circle Line-- have done the 3 hour tour and the 2 hour tour. This is the best one if you have a tight sight-seeing schedule. Hits all the highlights of both the NJ and NY sides of the Hudson River, plus a wonderful view of Lady Liberty and under 3 of the bridges on the East River side (Brooklyn Bridge!) Very informative!
