A great way to see the Statue of Liberty and the NYC skyline.
I got great pictures of the Statue from the boat.
really great tour. excellent organization, very informed tour guide, wonderful sights. highly recommend this if you have just one day to sight see.
Excellent crew and captain. EXCELLENT spoke person and we loved the stories and animation that he used. Thank you!
I booked the premium seats for myself and my parents. They each had a rollator and have a difficult time walking. The Circle Line staff both online and in person were super helpful. They carried the two rollators (rolling walkers) up the stairs to the premier seating area. The premier seating was fantastic. If you want a cushioned seat and seat back with two chair arms that are also cushioned....this is the way to go. Temperature controlled and safe area for people not that steady on their feet. Keep in mind, the elderly do have to make it up and down one set of stairs, but there are railings on both sides. Both of my parents went to the handicapped restroom on the first deck and they were thrilled with the large bathroom. So, great 3 hour trip for my folks. It was comfy for people who still want to travel and see the sights in their mid-80's.
We took the Circle Line boat tour around NYC and the 5 Burroughs. It was wonderful. We learned about everything we saw. The guide was knowledgeable and had a great personality. I highly recommend this 2-1/2 hr. tour.
This was our first trip to NY and we felt it was the best way to see the city! NY can be very overwhelming and this let you see the city from a bit off. You could see everything so much better because you weren't right on top of the city. We took the 2.5 hour cruise and loved it! Arrive an hour early like suggested to get the best seats.
We received a very good overview of New York City. Unfortunately, we were not able to have a complete tour because of the tide levels at the time of our tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave just enough history and information to make his presentation interesting.
Great time on the water.no need to buy premier seating unless you want to sit inside. Great view of the town. I gave only 4 stars because the speaker talked too fast, it was difficult to understand at times.
Had a really good time on the cruise. It was very informative and it was great to see Manhattan from this view rather than just staying in the CBD itself.
The tour director was great. The sights were better than expected.
The food was much too costly. $17 for a sandwich and $4.25 for water was ridiculous.
Sit back and unwind on a relaxing two and a half hour cruise around Manhattan Island. You'll see all the sights on the only New York cruise to circumnavigate Manhattan in its entirety.
