  • The Hudson River cruise was a great opportunity to learn about the history of the area. It was educational and relaxing at the same time. Do it.

  • Nice trip, beautiful day. Excellent narration, and courteous staff.

  • Nice tour. Informational and excellent tour guide.

  • The boat trip was pleasant with a smooth trip on the Hudson. The navigator had some interesting information, and friendly people
    assisting us.

  • The tour guide gave us a ton of information. It was a very relaxing trip.

  • excellent cruise on the Hudson River, all the land features were pointed out and their history was told. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

  • The cruise was wonderful. The crew and the narrator were polite and professional. The only addition I could make would be for the narrator to make an additional comment at the outset about talking during the narration. We were seated in the lower lounge area for this cruise. It was difficult if not impossible to hear most of the narration over several loud conversations going on around us. There was ample time for conversation on the return leg as the narration was over.

  • Our guide was really knowlegable and the tour was interesting. The highlight? Seeing several bald eagles!

  • Had a great time. The weather wasn't all that good but that's not the fault of the boat company.

  • We took this cruise basically to fill some time. Not really that interesting. Along the way many industrial sites were pointed out: metal recycling with stacked up cars, barges and tugboats, an old molasses factory and a yacht club. The narration could only be heard inside the cabin, not on the deck where most people were. Some pretty houses along the river, with quaint stories about the builders. All in all, not something I would recommend.
