Let me tell you I enjoyed every aspect of this experience. Having lived in New York for most of my life I never knew about this gem. Aboard the Manhattan, a cozy, elegant 1920s style yacht my family and I traveled the Hudson River in style! The yacht featured an air conditioned (or heated) enclosed solarium, where my family and I enjoyed a complimentary beverage with admission to the tour. But the tour offered additional beverages spirited, non-spirited and cheese platters to satisfy your palate. The Classic Harbor Line encourages you to bring a picnic basket as the tour solarium is the perfectly set for indoor dining. My family and I brought along a small lunch aboard as we were traveling with my son and daughter and it was a classy endeavor. The crew was courteous and ensured that your experience was an enjoyable and comfortable one.
Although the views are breathtaking from the solarium the outer deck was absolutely beautiful, a seaside look as opposed to a street side (the concrete jungle) view, providing a more intimate experience as you allow the sounds, air and gorgeous sites to directly consume you. Not only were the views breathtaking, the hospitable crew provided an in depth history on the evolution of the New York City skyline from colonialism to today.
The length of the tour was about two hours, but the experience did not drag, as the saying goes “time flies when you are having a good time”, well let me tell you – I wanted more when the ride came to a close. I would definitely take this tour again, not to mention the Classic Harbor Line offers many other tour options, such as an architecture tour, brunch cruise, sunset cruise, Jazz cruise, wine and cheese pairings, city lights cruise, New Years Eve fireworks and much more. I give the Classic Harbor Line five stars for an all around enjoyable adventure in NEW YORK CITY! So what are you waiting for, visit the Classic Harbor Line and experience the Hudson River in style!
