Highly recommended. Enjoyable and informative. Despite living in NYC all my life and am a history buff, I learned a lot. I also think the price is very reasonable. Unlike some of the other boat rides, it goes all the way around Manhattan.

Delightful!!!! Our architect was excellent, knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed leading the tour. We’ve been to NYC many times over the last 40 years, seeing he new structures from the water along with the upper Hudson history was fascinating. Thank you!!!!
