Good cruise, bad tour guide
Zev_B

The cruise itself was great and the views were amazing, and the building and historical information given by the guide was great. However, the guide spent a lot of time talking about how essentially New York was a decaying city and everyone was moving to New Jersey. There's a time when I thought he might be a plant for some kind of New Jersey housing authority bureau! He also needed to get in quite a few jobs at the "1%" and their housing. And finally, and probably weirdest of all, he went on this long tirade at the beginning about how the captain leaves late, and then the boat needs to go too fast and so he can't give the proper information, and then he gets bad reviews and gets scolded by his managers for the bad reviews that really aren't his fault. Friend, this is not the place to air your dirty laundry or your company's dirty laundry. Those three things combined just added a lot of negative cynicism to the mood that was not what I was looking for.

Loved the view from the water. It was relaxing and fun. The ride was perfect for 90 minutes and we got to go underneath the Brooklyn bridge and learn a lot of history and fun facts. Great addition to our trip!!

The itinerary and length of tour was good. The narration started out well and tapered to almost nothing the second half of the tour.

Last resort if everything is booked

Overall it was good to see everything but when the guy explaining everything, he was jumping around instead of explain things as they pass so people like me that never been to New York would not be confused as well as he was also telling us stuff that was over 20miles away that was not visible to anyone. He was so monotone and boring to listen to

Wonderful experience!...

Wonderful experience! Can't wait to do it again! Love the fact that I didn't have trouble parking. I would have given 5 stars if the transition was a smooth one at the beginning. Walking back and forth just to show proof of ID and vaccination was just ridiculous, I would have rather uploaded these prior to arrival or atleast be aware that its a requirement to board. Otherwise fantastic experience!

Tour guide was awesome

The only reason the tour wasn’t a 5 for the price was the food. We ordered the pizza and the guy fumbled with packages and toppings and didn’t wash his hands. The tour itself was amazing and the crew was very knowledgeable. Skip the food and enjoy the tour!!!
