Just returned from New York. We took this tour in the afternoon on Monday, December 3, 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed it! The light snack of Mediterranean food was delicious too.

This cruise is relaxing, very informative and a classy way to see Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. The beautiful timber boat, the excellent commentary from a very knowledgeable architect (Joseph), the scenery as we circumnavigated Manhattan, all made the cruise feel very special

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
