Comments about Smart Destinations Twilight Cruise by City Sightseeing Cruises:

I did this trip once with my husband and when we came back for children's 21st and 18th we took them again as wanted them to see the amazing sights! Definitely recommend this. You experience two completely different views of the city going down the river to Brooklyn bridge whilst it's light then coming back watching the whole city light up. It's absolutely amazing. I don't really enjoy boats but this tour was very good. Although it was cold we could sit upstairs in the warmth and slide the windows open when we wanted to take pictures. I will do this trip again when I return to New York one day - it's one of the best! GO YOU WILL LOVE IT - definitely worth the money!

Great End to a Great Trip
By BornNewYorker Verified Reviewer from Bowling Green, KY on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Twilight Cruise by City Sightseeing Cruises:

What a fantastic way to end our vacation to the Big Apple. The sun had just set and we were able to just kick back and relax while enjoying a beautiful view of the skyline. Plus we got some great photos of Lady Liberty and enjoyed the narrative. We grabbed dinner and drinks afterwards and then headed back to the hotel before we flew out in the morning. It was a relaxing way to cap off a whirlwind week of sightseeing!
