    This tour was excellent right from the start from stepping onto the water taxi. The tour guide was friendly, engaged the crowd really well, was very informative and made you feel really good! Having the entry into the 9/11 museum was an added bonus. The museum was very interesting and probably the highlight of the day. To have the museum ticket included on the package, i would definitely recommend this tour. The photo opportunities at the Statue of Liberty were great with the skipper turning the boat so people on both sides of the boat had opportunities to take photo's.

    I am a New Yorker visiting from the West Coast where I now live. What I liked most of all was being on the spectacular Hudson looking at how the Jersey shore is rivaling Manhattan's. It puts you right off without the subway and a long walk to get to the Museum. Easy Peasy

    Every citizen and or visitors to NYC should see the 911 memorial. It is tastefully done but still tells you the whole story of what happened. Going down and down underground set the tone for the whole experience.

    9/11 museum portion of tour which I paid for was not available until late in the day even though I was there to check in for boat trip before first boat of the day. It was deceptive of Viator to sell this to me as being available.

    We were lucky with a warm, beautiful day in November. The ferry was comfortable and spacious. 9/11 Museum is a definite must see but very emotional.

    This tour was not worth the money charged by viator. The boat trip was okay, but you could hardly hear the tour guide over the voices of the tourists, as he described the scenes. The computers were down when we arrived at the pier, so we had to pay for our 911 Museum tickets twice. Stop 3 was not available.
