SHAWB_K

The staff were professional and friendly. I was deceived by the advertising. No buffet lunch or favorable choices for the 3. Course lunch a few argula leaves with a drop of tomato and watermelon, baked chicken breast or veggie dish 5 string beans. mash potato with sauce cheesecake dessert . Tour guide / piano person playing golden oldies she was kind clear speaking and knowledgeable. Boring ride but the weather was good. The Over price did not match the experience. Dont go. Thank God for a safe journey

This is the 3rd experience I've booked from Viator and it didn't disappoint! My birthday lunch cruise was fabulous even in the rain. The tickets were easy and I always feel VIP when I present. The meal was LOVELY and tasty and the piano player was a surprise treat! And Lady Liberty was grand! I love Viator!

The cruise was awesome as was the weather, but I will not do anymore dealings with Viator as they are greedy heartless people. I booked an earlier snorkeling trip thru the as well for early August in Key West. After traveling the day before to key West while at the height of the COVID pandemic and in the epicenter two members woke that morning with mild symptoms. While we were all vaccinated we thought to do the right thing and not go on o boat with many other people and breathe in a shared snorkel. When i called to inform them they cancelled my reservation but would not refund my money due to their "strict refund policy". So much for doing the right thing.

You guys sold me a ticket to an event that never happened and then did not contact me to tell me that it was not happening. We got there and there was no one working the ticket office either. Once I figured out it wasn’t happening, I called you all and no one answered. I want my full refund please and thank you

After a stressful first day in New York due to Viator's awful service with another booking, me and my daughter were really looking forward to this trip. We arrived an hour before we were due to set sail and went to check in, the ladies at the booking office said that they had no record of our booking with Viator being transferred to them, despite us booking this trip back in October 2017. They told us that they had no room to accommodate us. I told them that we could not do the trip another day due to our tight schedule, we were then told that they could fit us on however continually made the point that they were full. We were squeezed into a corner of the boat and completely ignored for most of the time due to the limited staff on board. We felt like an inconvenience. The whole experience was completely overshadowed by yet more stress caused by Viator. Would not recommend due to such a negative experience with Viator and their poor communication with the organisers of the boat trip, AVOID!

This tour was recommended from Eric's New York app and he was spot on. It was a delightful 2 hours. The tour went from Chelsea Pier up to the Brooklyn Bridge then back via the Statue of Liberty and very close it was too. Very rousing music was played at the time which was not only appropriate but also made me quite emotional. We were met by a line of waiters to greet us. They all had a name badge and where they were from and they were all excellent. The food was delicious. A talented pianist and singer played requests and also gave us information of what we were passing by. There is an extensive drinks menu - my 2 bellinis were very good. The boat has windows to the ceiling so whether sitting by the window or further in, the views were good and there was a viewing place outside of the boat for taking photos, although, on the day we went it was freezing! There is also an evening cruise with the same boat. All in all, a trip worth taking. It returns to Chelsea Pier which is then convenient for the Highline which is probably a better walk in the summer with the plants in full bloom.

This was a most enjoyable experience. The boat was very stable in the water, the meal was excellent and cooked aboard the boat, and the service was wonderful. Although the sky was overcast and the wind blew constantly, we were still able to get great views and pictures of the lower Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty. I would highly recommend this event.

This is a must do. Beautiful setting good food and great views of New York by night. Great service nothing too much bother. Fantastic views of The Statue of Liberty, This trip on the River takes in nearly everything you want to see in New York but in a relaxing setting all to music which was also very good. Can't say anything negative about this you will love it. It was my husband 60th birthday and a treat for him he was in awe of the whole trip.

We just got back from nyc and did the Liberty lunch cruise. They staff were very friendly and pleasant but I feel they were understaffed. The boat was half full and we were all placed on one side of the boat .The A/C was not working and most of the passengers seemed uncomfortable while inside . It was beautiful when we went on the deck . The staff were great helping us take pictures and offering drinks. The narration was difficult to hear while outside . Apparently we could have preordered children's meals for our children but it was not available on the viator site. I would call ahead if you have children.
