Nice short tour. If you don’t upgrade to premium, you can’t go to the upper deck of the boat. Still nice on lower deck though. There’s no air conditioning on upper deck.

Do not use Viator

So - you go online and buy a ticket. Guess what happens when you show up? They say "that's just a voucher, now you get in the ticket line, like everyone else, and they give you a ticket" So we had showed up early, and it was crowded. We bought tickets online to avoid that. But we had to wait in the same line as everyone who just showed up - the TICKET LINE - for 45 minutes, to get our tickets. We had read it was "first come first serve" as to getting on the ship. So our wait lost us any good seats. Do not use this - show up early and buy the tickets in person.

Fabulous cruise on the Hudson to take an up close view of Lady Liberty. The commentary throughout was excellent and gave you an insight to the buildings and points of interest along the way. The boat slowed down once we arrived at Liberty, so everyone has the opportunity to take photos. The 1 hour cruise is an excellence choice for those with limited time in New York. Food and drink was also available for purchase, as well as souvenir photos that can be purchased at the end of the cruise.
