    Staff was friendly, not terribly crowded. Good view of Statue of Liberty. Only thing was that when they took our picture in front of the statues view, the picture didn’t come out good (eyes closed) even though photographer said it did, so we didn’t get a chance to view the picture prior to purchasing :(

    This was the BEST tour Ever! Eva and her crew took care of my mother for her 72th birthday! My mom has an electric scooter; and I didn't think it would be able to get on the boat; but Eva's crew made sure it got in the boat with absolutely no problem at all! I highly recommend this cruise! It is very informative of NYC!

    Everything completely uncomplicated. Check in, care, organization, city guide, catering ... a great alternative to the endless lines of people on the small island ... well observed from the water. With this boat tour you get close enough to the Statue of Liberty and avoid the madness of mass tourism.
