John White reviewed Best of New York Full Island Sightseeing Cruise 10 Oct, 2017
Our trip was a impacted a bit by mist but nobody could be blamed for that. The tour guide commentary was good but the PA system made it hard to hear at times over the noise of the inevitable school trips. Nevertheless a great way to orientate yourself with all the landmarks in Manhattan.
