    The ferry trip was relaxing so much so that you get to close those weary eyes of yours and easily have a nanna nap. Going this time of year you get to see all the colours of Autumn and it's just beautiful. We went there at a time they were celebrating October fest. Good time.

    The trip started early in the morning and was full of great sites along the Hudson and with narrative by the crew. Lots of good food and snacks were available on the boat. Bear Mountain was lovely and fun to hike up to the lake, the rustic café, and the gorgeous rock formations and lovely forests along the way up. Our trip was in the Fall and the leaves were stunning. The café offered hot dogs, burgers, chicken sandwiches and soft drinks and beer. The trip back on the Hudson was just as interesting and the view of NY skyline in the afternoon was beautiful. Take this trip. You will enjoy it!! Sandy Brown

    It was hard to hear the guy talking about the sights on the way up. We didn't understand what to do when we got to the mountain. We ended up wandering through a weird zoo. If there was actually a nice wooded hike up the mountain we completely missed it. The scenery is beautiful. The lodge at the top is pretty neat and great for a cocktail. We did enjoy the day but I would have liked a map or something that helped us understand what our option were once we got to Bear Mountain.

    Had a great time. Staff was helpful and friendly. Cruise commentator was very knowledgeable and made the trip up and down the Hudson River even more interesting.

    This is my 4th trip with Viator, and it's my least favorite. While I enjoyed the cruise up the Hudson, the food on the ship, and the fall foliage, the steep hill, wasn't fun. I loved the scenery, and the grounds were beautiful, but I don't have difficulty walking, the hill, did prevent me, from going to the Bear mountain inn, the zoo, and the trail, uphill. The trip was overall, good, but could have been better. Perhaps, hand rails, up the hill, would have made feel more safer.
