This was a great tour! Tour guide Chris was informative and humorous. Definitely worth the cost!

Reviewed by: Robert S, August 2015

This is an amazing way to see the city sights -- from the water! It was very hot, almost 100 degrees, but we moved inside when necessary and could still see well. The views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty can't be beat!
