Great way to see Manhattan!

Great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the major sites and more. Was great to zoom round on the boat. Highly recommend this tour.
Amazing experience

Saw this as a tour option on Viator and thought it might be fun! There were 4 of us, friends for over 40 years who signed up. From signing up, the communication from the tour company to the tour itself, everything went super smoothly! We found the pier easily and our tour guide Joel did a great job prepping us as to what to expect. The coats (and pants if we wanted) that were provided were perfect in keeping the wind out. Joel even had a pony for my hair as i'd forgotten one! The tour was amazing and beautiful, such a great way to really see the city! HIGHLY recommended!
Fun in the sun!

This is my 4 th tire doing this tour and I really enjoy it. Guides are always good. It’s fun, effective way to see Manhattan from all angles. I took my friends and family every time I came in NYC and every single of them still recall the time spent on medical boat tour.

This is one of THE best tours! We learned so much about the city. Our tour guide was so funny and knowledgeable. The boat ride was exciting! He took pictures of my husband and I before we left the dock and in front of landmarks. He always asked how we were all doing (about the ride) and informed us of so many interesting facts. It was the highlight of our trip!
Best way to see NY

We had a fantastic trip. This is a must do and the best way to see the major sites, we have previously taken a helicopter tour but this is way better. Joel, our captain, was great and very reassuring to a couple of nervous passengers. I can’t recommend this enough!
Fabulous Media Boat Tour of NYC
, Jun 2019
The medial boat tour of NYC was absolutely amazing! The boat is FAST and gets your to points of interest quickly. Joel our guide was knowledgeable and informative and was able to answer all our questions. He also provided us with great and unique photo opportunities of NYC from the water. The tour is not only interesting but its an absolute thrill! Our 3 teens and we (adults) LOVED IT!!

Es war die beste Wahl überhaupt, besser als jede andere Stadtrundfahrt. Die Kids hatten Spaß und wir auch. Natürlich nur bei guten Wetter zu empfehlen. Man bekommt aber dicke Jacken, somit ist es auch nicht kalt. Dafür aber Mega - schnell....😊
