Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a free ferry running frequently 24 hours a day and gives a great view of the Statue of Liberty if you are short of time and don’t actually want to visit the museum etc.

    For $5.50 you can travel across 3 boroughs, see all of Manhattan status if liberty and spend 2 hours on the water. The best trio in NYC. Go up to Throgs Neck then all the way to Brooklyn. Great afternoon

    My son had a day off from school so I took the day off from work and got us tickets to the Intrepid so he wasn't home all day staring at a screen. I never take the ferry across the river because the train or the tunnel (if driving) are much more convenient and cheaper. The downtown stop is a better stop closer to the action but the midtown stop is only good if you are going to Javitz or the Intrepid.

    The cost is too much, the journey is on a less frequent schedule than the train and the parking at Port Imperial is also too much.

    So yeah, if this is your first time or if you are a local showing someone the city, this is a nice journey. If you want in and out quickly, take a train.

    We chose to ride the buses on our trip. The electric buses are very nice with Wi-Fi and USB ports. Seating is more comfortable with more ergonomic curvature.

    I am not sure if we got scammed because it was the weekend or if this is legit Monday - Friday! But we bought tickets on Saturday and the whole place was shut up!

    The ticket men did a good job at selling them to us and convinced us it was too foggy to see the Statue of Liberty on the free staton island ferry!

    They shipped us off on a ferry ( a group of 20) and dumped us in New Jersey! The shuttle bus sped off as quick as he could. We had to get an Uber back!

    DO NOT BUY TICKETS FOR THIS BOAT!

    This modern extension of the system had received a lot of publicity and it sure took a long time to build. So I was happy to ride it. Very crowded and much-used, so I guess it is much-needed. The stations are big and clean, but not well-decorated. Much deeper than other stations, so the escalators were very welcome.

    Safe and convenient place.
    Coaches to Canada, Atlantic City, Boston, Philadelphia etc.
    There's a Dunkin donuts corner where you can buy and take your food away before getting on the bus.

    New York Cruise terminal is near to the Intrepid War ship museum. The terminal is pretty gritty and not worth a visit. Avoid.

    We used them for Airport transportation and a private tour. EVERYTHING was AMAZING. Communication was great. They were on time and very friendly. Our tour was awesome and Ray changed it up once we met to include some place he thought we would enjoy. Will use them every time we go to NYC.

    Used Platinum for both airport collection and drop off. Excellent pre pick up messaging service which is essential given the logistic issues and potential delays with airport travel at present. Vinny and his team navigated our delayed flight plus delay caused by lost baggage and got us to our destination with minimum of fuss. Quality vehicles and prompt customer facing serving, I wouldn't recommend anybody else. If you need a collection service use these guys.

    My family and I had the best experience with this tour group. We were enjoying the beginning of the tour when one of our family members had a health scare. The staff were so accommodating stopping at the Shawnee Inn (one of the sites on the tour) for what we thought was a bathroom stop, however we needed medical attention. The staff were more than accommodating and kind. My family stepped off the tour until the situation got better and the tour guides came back to pick us up in a bus and offered to do the tour with us on the trolley with just our group. It was a nice tour to see the small town of the Poconos and a stop at the Delaware water gap. The tour guides were knowledgeable and gave great background on local spots and the history in the town. We cannot stop raving about the staff and how genuinely great they were to us. 10/10 service and tour!
