O passeio é ótimo tudo organizado. Eu comprei o passeio de mais de 2joras e achei que não precisava, pois o passeio de 1hora e 30 minutos é o suficiente. O mais longo dá volta na ilha, fica muito tempo no Bronx onde não tem nada de interessante prá ver. O passeio mais curto passa nas principais atrações e faz a volta. É o suficiente. Ainda mais no frio que estava nesse dia em NY.

The activity itself was good but beware, we thought we were buying a skip the line cruise, our fault maybe but we got sent to the box office to pick up tickets which we did not apparently need and then got sent to the back of the line and ended up struggling to find seats together and then only inside seats
