What a way to see the famous skyline at night ! Crew and musicians were brilliant and very attentive. Only downside was they had cancelled our time (due to not enough passengers I presume) and we hadn’t been informed , the lady did say she’d tried calling and mailed but we never received anything. They compensated us with a drinks package. We stopped right outside the Statue of Liberty and had great photo opportunities and didn’t feel rushed. Highly recommended and was certainly a highlight on our trip.

I took the Brooklyn Bridge tour and Manny was our guide. Despite a cold dreary day I thoroughly enjoyed it. Manny was knowledgeable about the area and history of the bridge. It included riding over the manhattan and Brooklyn bridge and a nice ride in Brooklyn. The pace was not pressured and is fine for all ages. I'm 62.

It was a wonderful experience, great music, wonderful staff and unforgettable sights to see of the Manhattan skyline

The tour guide was very nice and especially down to earth person easy to speak with, friendy

Plenty of good information and tips on what else to see and do. Fun Santa was present then.
