Viator customer service lied so they can profit a sale

That circle line denied me access on the boat because I was unvaccinated. Viator customer service said as long you wear a mask you fine. NOT.

When we visit New York we don’t usually do touristy things but I’ve always wanted to try a boat tour I looked at the website at 9 AM the morning we were leaving New York and noticed the 10:30 AM 1 hour cruise was on sale so we managed to squeeze it in on a nice sunny August morning before it got too hot and before checkout time at the hotel. I was very impressed with everything from the information well presented by the guide to how nice the bathrooms are. Next time we are in New York I will definitely splurge on the evening tour or a full circle around Manhattan.

Beautiful view of the Statue. Narration was funny and informative! The boat was nowhere near capacity due to Covid so that was really nice. Felt safe and clean to be outside on the boat deck.

Seeing The Statue of Liberty was amazing. The boat ride was so relaxing and the conductor was so informative. I would highly recommend taking this cruise especially if you are short on time it only last for about an hour. FYI you do not get off of the boat to see the Statue of Liberty the boat passes by and you can take plenty of pictures.
