water taxi

Gray line hop on-off buses are offering a free trip on the water taxi with their 48 hour tickets,is this trip good value or would I be better off booking a circle line cruise?

Is the Water Taxi ride they're offering one of the sightseeing routes or is just a ride on the taxi with other commuters?

Sorry I wasn't very clear it's the statue of liberty tour.

It is great value for money, we did the tour three weeks ago.

You cannot get off the taxi, bit it takes you under Brooklyn Bridge and out to Statue of Liberty so you can get some great pictures.

Along with the water taxi, there should also be free entry to a Museum. We never had time to go in, but apparently the Museum is meant to be great.

Have fun.

Forgot to mention, the water taxi tour is about an hour long.

You can get up, move around inside and out.

Very easy, you can go outside on one of the platforms but you would stuggle up the netal steps to get to top of the boat.

But getting on will not prove to be an issue.

You'll love it.

Have fun, hope it's a bit warmer than when we were there.
