Loved NYC skyline from the water!

A great way to see NYC from the water, and of course the stunning Statue of Liberty! Was a little tricky to navigate the upper deck for a photo or two with people taking “ownership” of some areas (!!!) but we really enjoyed our cruise and the views!! Just make sure you allow plenty of time if walking from subway at Battery Park - it’s quite a walk!

Informative tour in sufficient time

Was a great tour - due to the postcard weather and the weather forecast on the originally planned day, we postponed the appointment online in the morning - everything worked out perfectly - new voucher came immediately via and in the app, in which the ticket is also available offline.

eigentlich hätte man den voucher eintauschen müssen, das ging aber nirgendwo und nach langem hin und her hat uns der eine skipper dann in eine schlange geschickt und meinte passt schon, im nachhinein kam heraus, er war nur so nett, denn unser eigentliches boot hatte gerade abgelegt. die fahrt war super und es wurde sehr viel zeit an der freiheitsstatue gegeben und die sprecherin hat alles super erklärt. war richtig toll
