This was the highlight of our trip, Eric was an amazing guide and took us on an exhilarating tour of all the main sights at high speed! He was super knowledgeable and looked after us so well, taking time to take our photos and explain all the key facts. The weather was a little choppy but he still took us and it only served to make it even more thrilling!

Exceptional. Shaun was amazing, told a lot of fun stories and explained things very well. Stopped at a ton of locations, enough to take photos and just enjoy the ride. Was much better than expected and would highly recommend this tour. They had jackets for those who were cold.

We had a blast - great weather and perfect day on the river(s) Guide was very accommodating in regards to picture opportunities while also giving history of the buildings/general area. Much better than the (yawn), slow boats that will take you around the Statue of Liberty.

This was the highlight of my New York trip. Riding this smaller vessel provided an enhanced experience of seeing the city from the water. Eric was an excellent guide. I highly recommend this tour.

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the city and up-close to the Statue of Liberty. What sets this tour apart from others? The journey itself is exciting speeding across the waves in the Hudson and East Rivers, small group on your tour, you'll be supporting a small local business, and it's a fun way to cool off on a hot summer day!!
