The hop on hop off cruise was interesting in that it gives a different perspective of New York City and its skyline. Our guide was knowledgeable but somewhat dry. We used a coupon from an online group so the tour was not expensive.

Amazing trip all round, the sky line is spectacular. Being a hop on hop off we only got off at Brooklyn and had lunch, hopped back on 1 hour later, and continued the tour. The lady guide encouraged us to return for the night time...More

We were gifted a 48 hour City Sightseeing tour of New York. We took the uptown tour, the downtown tour and the night time tour. We sadly didn't have enough time for the cruise over to Statue of Liberty or the Brooklyn tour. We loved...More

Great views of the statue, Brooklyn bridge and other places I’ve never heard off that are even more interesting! Highlight was our guide - might have been called John? A real, proper New Yorker with real, proper opinions and experience he enthusiastically shared with us....More

I'm not disappointed with the view from the boat, on the contrary, it's a very nice trip in the twilight. Manhattan is (also) wonderfully beautiful, from the ocean. But the staff, frankly, you need a communication and courtesy course. You could have ruined the trip.

Usually my favorite thing to do in any city, is the hop-on hop-off tour so I didn't hesitate when booking this one. Unfortunately, there were two major issues on the tour: 1) The recording was completely out of sync with the tour! Like by several...More

I booked this tour here on Trip Advisor. The boat leaves just around sunset and you will get to see Manhattan, New Jersey, Staten Island, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn, the bridges and so much more when all lit up. It can’t be described how beautiful...More
