The Lower Manhattan Architecture Tour is a 1.5-hour cruise that's fully narrated by a member of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) New York Chapter. It's general enough for visitors, yet detailed enough for the locals, design students, and professionals! Cruise along the Hudson River and into New York Harbor and see some of Manhattan's most popular buildings and landmarks.

Step aboard the teak decks of our elegant 1920s style yachts and experience a comfortable and unique tour on the Hudson River from the climate-controlled and glassed-enclosed back-deck observatory or outer decks on the Yacht Manhattan or Yacht Manhattan II.
