Exactly as described! Wonderful narration. close enough to see the actual texture on the Statute of Liberty. Daylight when we took off, dark when we got back, so seeing the city two different times it seemed. Amazing!

Great tour, perfect the info on board from Chris. 2 hours passed quickly. Very close to the Liberty and wonderful impressions at night. We recommend.

Very easy and everything went smoothly . Easy to find the venue . Enjoyable boat ride , everyone practiced safety .

Long queue for security and the ferry. But a great experience once you arrive on the island.

This trip is absolutely amazing! Loved every second
