What to expect

Extend your tour and head north up the Hudson River, checking out America’s first public park (Central Park), one of the country’s oldest universities (Columbia) and the jarringly beautiful Palisades, the sheer cliffs rising just west of Manhattan, and America's longest suspension bridge, the Verrazano Bridge.

5-stars. Two thumbs up. Not a rotten tomato
Aug 2021
Killer tour and comfortable ride. I was a first timer, so I have nothing to compare it to, but wow I was blown away by how comfortable and fun this was. The only knock is that the pilot had a slight accent, and we were all required to wear masks, so it was a bit tough to hear the names of some of the sights he was pointing out.
