What a great cruise. All the staff were excellent and the narrative of all the mansions and things along the way were great too. I was surprised that they went about 15 miles south of Kingston. Can't wait to do it again.

View was gorgeous. Food available could be improved. Soveniers selection could also be better. Crew was friendly and helpful . Clean bathrooms too, that’s always a plus.

We enjoyed an afternoon cruise in late October, 2017. Fall leaves, beautiful estates and the experience of being on the water. Crew was friendly and helpful. Very clean vessel. I highly recommend it!

The river cruise was a wonderful afternoon outing when visiting the Hudson Valley. I recommend it as a way to enjoy this beautiful part of NY state.

This was a great tour of the Hudson. It's a fun way to spend the afternoon and learn about the history of the Hudson and the estates that line it. I just wish there were tastier snacks. The bar was nice, however.

Spent an enjoyable two hours on the Hudson River. A Relaxing Time looking at the views while a narration was provided with some interesting information about the land and houses, etc on the river. It was definitely worth the cost.

This particular cruise is in Kingston NY, about an hour from Manhattan. Not sure how you would get up there, but you may be able to find one closer out of Manhattan. Enjoy your trip
