Not a bad cruise, could be a little longer , going up the Hudson river farther would of been better, but all in all was a nice cruise for the money, and there is a bar on board also the staff is friendly and well informed of the area.

beautiful cruise on the Hudson River. Relaxing and enjoyable. Nice to see our town from a different view. Fall foliage was absolutely beautiful.

Didn't know how wide the Hudson River really was, so foliage, mansions, and other points of interest along the river are viewed from a good distance away. Still, It was an enjoyable, leisurely boat trip. Would agree that there isn't a whole lot to see, but we were glad we went. Bought tickets at the ticket booth under the bridge about an hour before the 2:30pm departure time. There is limited free parking right in front of the booth or the lot across the street and there are also metered parking nearby too. Restrooms located in a separate building located to the right of the ticket booth and there are clean facilities onboard. There are also snacks available for purchase. We went on a Friday so the boat was not too crowded. We were able to walk around the deck to take photos from different angles. We had a delicious lunch at the Mariner's Harbor before our cruise, so this would be a good choice if you plan to eat afterwards. Several other eating places to chose from, too.

Living in the area, we take a lot of the views of the river for granted. It was nice to see it from the other side for a change. 2 hour cruise was very enjoyable and tour guide's narration was very helpful for the tourists. Leaves had not quite changed completely yet, so colors were not bright. But day was beautiful and enjoyed the cruise a great deal. Facilities on the boat were comfortable.

Decided to look at the fall leaves from the Hudson River. Took a tour on the Rip Van Winkle Hudson River Cruises. A great way to view the Hudson. Saw beautiful lighthouses ( yes lighthouses) on the Hudson and beautiful mansions. The boat is clean and they even serve drinks and food on board. Had a great hot apple cider and spiced rum cocktail! Great tour on the river. The crew is very friendly and there there is even some commentary to let you know what you are seeing.
