The trip was very interesting with explanation of the west (Albany) side of the shore going down. Most of the eastern (Rensselaer) side unmentioned. Wide variety of beer was available but snacks not so obvious. Staff was friendly and helpful. At 1 1/2 hours it was a very pleasant relaxing break and not the usual activity. Will do again with...

We took our 12yr. Old grandson who got to sit with the captain and steer the boat for several minutes. Loved it. Scenery was very interesting and our guide Pat super knowledgeable and funny. Good history and architectural lessons. Loved it.

Wonderful, informative cruise down the Hudson. Super friendly and helpful staff. 7 year old granddaughter insisted on visiting all 3 decks. Snacks and drinks were very limited but very reasonably priced.

We arrived early, but not early enough to seats on top deck. Pat did a fine narrating job, pointing out historical significance of the shoreline points of interest. Dogs and beer on board were reasonably priced.

Great cruise at an economical price, $20. Although the boat was full there were plenty of seats on the boat with great views. The Historian doing the speaking of the various sites was interesting and insiteful. There is a WW II ship to tour right next to the cruise. We saw several Eagles on our 90 minute tour.

Learned a lot about the area I've lived in for years. Excellent tour guide for an end of summer adventure. Good for the family - interesting history lesson, Eagles, and beautiful views.

Had a nice time. The entire trip was narrated by a very personable knowledgeable guide. The trip was great for a history buff, learned some interesting facts about the Hudson. The waters are extremely calm and we saw many bald eagles. They offer alcoholic beverages, soft drinks hot dogs and chips. I would have liked more food options but it... More

I found it a little underwhelming, but relaxing and interesting. I thought there would be more to see by way of grand homes and interesting architecture. What there is to see is interesting, and our guide was petsonable. I recommend it for a quick overview of this part of the Hudson River.
