I'm so glad you guys were able to get out there and still enjoy the great pizza and beers despite the weather not being in your favor. If anything, it's just a testament to how great NYC pizza really is! Best, Jake.

New York Craft Cocktail Tour New York Date Night Nov 27, 2019 New York By: Corinne W
As people who live in New York, we went into this going in and thinking that we’d tour some of the greatest hits in the East Village from a cocktail standpoint, which we’ve been to before. We were, however, pleasantly surprised that this tour took us to 3 places we’ve never been, and a couple that we didn’t even know existed! Nice to play tourist in your own town sometimes.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Corinne, That's what we love to hear! Our guides love to surprise locals with hidden gems right in their own backyard, and I'll be sure to pass your compliments along to them. I'm thrilled that this tour exceeded your expectations - there's really nothing quite like exploring your own city through a different perspective! Cheers to good drinks and good times! Best, Inah

Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night Oct 25, 2019 New York By: Lin B
Bruce Northam was our guide extraordinaire. It's obvious he has written books on touring and lives in the area we walked: we received more than the average information as we moved from block to block. I want to bring my husband back on this tour and hope we get Bruce again. The food was varied and delicious and don't worry about the calories, you'll walk it off! (Amazing that all the different nationalities are represented within blocks of each other.)
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Lin, That sounds like an amazing way to spend an afternoon in NYC! There's so much to see and hear and taste, and what better way to experience it than with such a knowledgeable guide. I'll be sure to pass your kind words along to Bruce, I know he'll be just as excited to hear that you so enjoyed your time with him. And the best compliment is that you found the tour so enjoyable that you want to experience it again with your husband. Let us know when you feel like exploring the city even more! Cheers, Inah
Zipline Canopy Tour New York Date Night Oct 23, 2019 New York By: Jamie W

West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Sep 29, 2019 New York By: Devon G
My husband and i went on the Food tour Saturday. We have never taken one of these and had no idea what to expect. What a great day! Adam was a great tour guide with lots of local lore to share. It was fun taste testing at the different venues, ending with cupcakes. What more could you ask! would definitely recommend.

NYC Sunset Cruise New York Date Night Sep 05, 2019 New York By: Evan D
1st: Get there early. Lines form quick, so some of the best looking/picture taking spots get taken. Other than that the crew is awesome. They answer questions, chat and because they are having a good time you are. Lastly you get some great shots of the city. Between the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn, and the Manhattan skyline was a fantastic date night.

NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Aug 12, 2019 New York By: Tom N
The boat was extremely warm with no preparations made for the heat. Constantly uncomfortable the entire trip. The service was inconsistent and the food was far from gourmet. Berry jam on a SYSCO cheese cake is not very interesting. I suppose this is an elite experience for tourists.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi there Tom,  Thank you for sharing your experience with us! I'm very sorry to hear that your cruise was a bit toasty. It looks like the temperature that day was in the high 90's that day! I spoke with our partners regarding the temperature on the vessel. They let us know that while the boat is climate-controlled, the weather, coupled with the amount of sunlight through all-glass exterior, may have made it challenging for the air conditioning to keep up.  In terms of the service and food, we are sorry to hear that expectations were not met. Our partners are usually so wonderful, it truly sounds as though the inconsistencies were the result of a bit of an off-day.  Please note that we have placed a $50.00 certificate in your Cloud 9 Living account for future use to reconcile any missed expectations! We look forward to getting you out on another adventure soon.  Best, Sophia
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Aug 05, 2019 New York By: Janet L
Our guide was fun and very knowledgeable. He's a NYC lifer, so he knows his stuff! I'm a picky eater and vegetarian, and every food choice selected was perfect and delicious! I loved seeing Bob Dylan's hangout, the Friend's apartment, understanding NY's gentrification situation, and the walks weren't too long or tiring. Oh, the cupcakes!!!!!! Yum!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Janet, That's fantastic! I'll definitely be sure to pass your compliments along to the guide. And wow - that certainly sounds like you spanned a ton of New York history, along with the so much of its foodie scene. Cheers to good food in a good city! Best, Inah

Romantic NYC Wine Tasting Sail New York Date Night Jul 09, 2019 New York By: Scott B
Overall, we had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely affable, answered questions, and were highly professional. The wines were unique and quite enjoyable. My only suggestion, would be to obtain higher quality crackers to for the cheese platter, and there also weren't enough crackers. I would suggest some higher quality breads rather than sleeves of crackers.

New York Harbor Sail New York Date Night Jul 03, 2019 New York By: Deborah P
It is hot waiting in line so stay in the shade and don’t forget sun screen. There were ppl who wore dresses which blew away. We really enjoyed our cruise and we avoided a storm which made it really exciting. Loved the views and the watching the workings of the sails. We got really close to the statue. We left late because they did wait for someone running late even though they advertised they will not wait. Then we had to get a tow bc of the wind to get out of the harbor. Once we were on the water we loved it. They have us a drink bc of the wait but then they never came back to get your empty can. So we were trying to take pics while holding the drinks, awkward. The kids loved moving up front to king of the world it. They did take our pics when we asked them to which was nice. We had an eventful time because there was a storm in the distance but we enjoyed it. Maybe if the water was smoother you could enjoy drinks but we really didn’t take advantage of that. But to wrap up, it was a super fun time, awesome way to see the statue and wonderful views of the city. We are so glad we did this experience!

West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Jun 07, 2019 New York By: Joan S
I did enjoy the wine tour with Jeff who was able to gear his wine information to the majority of the participants who admitted they knew very little about wine. It was very nice that the participants were all very friendly and engaging -- it was as much fun speaking with them as it was being on this tour. The one slight drawback to the tour was the fact that the 2nd restaurant was very energetic and loud thus making it difficult for Jeff to speak to everyone at once. Overall an enjoyable experience.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Joan, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience! I'm so glad to hear that both your guide and the other members of the group made the experience so welcoming to all expertise levels. In an effort to show you the best the area has to offer, our tour guides reserve tables at the hottest spots in the West Village, and it sounds like the quality of the restaurant brought out a crowd that day. I do hope you were still able to enjoy your day out in NYC, and inspired you to try out new wines! Warm Regards, Inah

Unbelievable! A week later and my husband and I still can’t stop talking about how much fun the lesson was. All of the instructors were amazing. We weren’t totally sure what to expect but they were so confident in us and explained everything thoroughly step by step to ease our nerves. We would do this again in a heartbeat!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Melissa, Honestly, I think YOU'RE amazing! Everyone gets those butterflies, but we have complete confidence in our instructors and we thank you for letting them guide you through this unique experience. Nothing like a little adrenaline to really make a memory stand out! Cheers, Inah
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Mar 22, 2019 New York By: Paige H
It was fun, but as a native New Yorker, he brought us to a lot of places we've already been. We were hoping to find some gems, but ended up at some basic spots. When my friend asked our guide why we went to this specific bagel shop, he said it was because it was on the way, no other reason. It was fine and would be more fun for out-of-towners!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Paige, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience and for your honest feedback. We truly appreciate it as we can only improve from it. I know that our guides strive to impress locals especially, and it sounds like we fell short of it on this tour. I'll definitely pass your comments on to our tour partner as I know they're always looking to do better as well. Warm Regards, Inah

SoHo Wine Tour New York Date Night Mar 22, 2019 New York By: Jeff S
This was a very strange tour...from the start, we could tell our guide was scattered. We began the tour by introducing ourselves, and when we got about halfway around the time, our guide interrupted the intros and started talking about something else. This was the theme of the next two hours – the talked, nonstop, jumping from one topic to the next incoherently, sometimes struggling for words, but never silent. It was to the point where it was impossible to have a conversation with any other guest because she never. stopped. talking. Additionally, when asked specific questions about topics she claimed to have knowledge of, she seemed unable to provide additional information. The tour visited two restaurants, and we tasted 3 wines at each and had some appetizers (of varying quality). The wines were decent, but definitely nothing special (~$20 retail). As such, opening just 6 bottles and serving a few cheap apps seemed to not make the price worth it, but a long shot. They should consider hosting this at a wine store or wine bar, instead of the restaurants – the format of the tour doesn't make anything about them inviting to return to.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Jeff, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience and for your honest feedback. We, and our partners, can only improve with constructive criticism and we definitely take your words to heart.  I would like to address the guide issue, which seemed to be the driving force behind your disappointing day. On an educational tour such as this, the importance of having a knowledgeable and informative guide is paramount. I wasn't able to get to a conclusion with the tour company as to whether the guide was having an off day, but regardless I can completely understand why such a stilted introduction threw you off balance for the rest of the tour. That you were not able to have a discussion with the rest of your group is an additional hurdle that I'm sorry you had to overcome - while guests are expected to listen during the guide's instruction, there should have been time for you be able to speak your thoughts regarding the various tastings.  That of course goes hand in hand with the price of the tour as the price includes not only the tastings of course, but the guidance of a professional as well. Unfortunately, neither lived up to expectations, and I would like to sincerely apologize for the experience that you had. We aim to create memorable experiences, and I'm sad to hear that yours was memorable in all the wrong ways. I would like to offer $50 towards the next experience that catches your eye on our site, in an effort to make this right, and hopefully get you out on a better adventure! I've placed that value in your account should you wish to give us another try in the future. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Warm Regards, Inah
New York Craft Cocktail Tour New York Date Night Feb 22, 2019 New York By: Sarah A
Super informative and fun. Loves how it was a smaller group, made it easier to move from bar to bar and hear about the history. Definitely worth the money since you get 3 full cocktails. Learning the history behind the bars and cocktails was great too.

Hi Sarah, I'm happy to hear you had such a great time! A little history and tasty cocktails sure make for a fun night out. Cheers to fun new memories in NYC! Warm Regards, Inah
Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night Dec 05, 2018 New York By: Paige H
This was such a great experience! I've done Urban Adventures before through Cloud9, the Carol Gardens Food Tour with my brother, and this was with my parents and boyfriend. It was rainy and cold, but that didn't dampen the mood. We had four tastes and lots of tales. We'll definitely be doing another tour in the near future!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Paige, I'm so happy to hear about your fun adventures! It's wonderful that you've been able to share these experiences with your loved ones, and we appreciate your continuing loyalty. Here's to great food and great people! Cheers, Inah
NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Nov 21, 2018 New York By: Bryan P
It was very good. Exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend. Service was top notch and the food better than at most $200 per plate weddings.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hey Bryan, Thanks for writing in. That's great to hear that the cruise exceeded your expectations and had great food. I will be sure to pass along your kind words to the cruise staff. Enjoy your week!  Best, ​Brooke
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Nov 08, 2018 New York By: Christine F
This tour was so much fun! Our guide was extremely informative and provided a greater level of appreciation to approaching wine. Would highly recommend as a gift or just for fun for any wine lover or for someone just trying to get into wine.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Christine, That's just what we want to hear! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us - I'm always eyeing this tour for myself and your excitement makes me wanna hop on a plane to NYC! Here's to good wine and the West Village.  Cheers, Inah
SoHo Wine Tour New York Date Night Nov 02, 2018 New York By: Melinda W
This tour was not what I was expecting. In the description I realized that we were only going to two restaurants. At each restaurant we got the chance to taste 3 or 4 different wines while enjoying some small bites. Because the group was so large, I didn't get a chance to really hear the description of the wines even though our guide did seem knowledgeable. I've been on many tours and I would have preferred if we went to more than two restaurants and if we got more of a history behind the wine or the restaurant that we were going to. At times, the tasting did seem rushed. Also, I didn't always get a clean glass when tasting a new wine. I had to reuse my glass. Doesn't that change the flavor of the wine? I wouldn't recommend this tour because I feel like it was not worth the money.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Melinda, Thank you for your review. We greatly value the feedback we receive from our customers and are looking to continuously improve our experiences. I'm sorry to hear that the the tour did not live up to your expectations, and that you were not able to enjoy it to its fullest extent due to the size of the group and the pacing. We do limit the group to 12 people, but I understand that it can feel like more in an instructional setting. I will also pass along your concerns regarding the wine glasses to the tour company as I know they also strive to make their tours as memorable as possible.  As you've noted that you enjoy going on tours, I've placed a $25 voucher into your Cloud 9 Living account that you can use towards future experiences should you wish to go out on another tour with us! All the best, Inah
Lobster and Beer Lovers Sail New York Date Night Oct 23, 2018 New York By: Rick C
If you going for a sunset sail, there are two garages suggested for nearby parking, but one closes at 8pm. Be sure to research ahead of time and park at the 24hr recommended parking garage, rather than the other. Aside from the parking fiasco, the experience was amazing. Lobster rolls were delicious; loaded with lobster and slaw all on a toasted/buttered roll. Views were spectacular, and we were able to hold our position right in front of Ellis Island and the Lady Liberty for almost an hour! Just need to be careful with your trash, as the trashcans don't have lids on them and the wind can easily take it overboard.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Thanks for writing in. I apologize for the parking debacle. The parking garage we list on our confirmation is the one that our crew recommends to customers as well. If you wouldn't mind letting us know what the 24-hour garage is, I'd love to make sure and include it for future customers. I appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Despite getting off to a rough start with parking, I'm glad to hear that the actual sail was wonderful. Enjoying delicious lobster with spectacular views of the city and Lady Liberty is a fantastic way to spend the evening.   Thanks again for your review and suggestions. Enjoy your weekend. Best, ​Brooke

Carroll Gardens Food Tour New York Date Night Oct 23, 2018 New York By: Sandy M
We can't say enough good things about our experience on the Carroll Gardens Food Tour from Urban Adventures. John, our guide, was the PERFECT host and tour guide. He was pleasant and very knowledgable about ALL of Brooklyn, especially the well chosen stops on our food tour. On the way to each stop, we learned interesting facts about the area and individual homes and businesses. We had planned on returning home after the tour, but John recommended places to see and and things to do, so we ended up staying the entire day enjoying exploring Brooklyn.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Sandy, That's wonderful! And I'm glad John's suggestions prompted you to explore Brooklyn, really make a day of it. I hope you found some great new spots to return to! Cheers, Inah

Romantic NYC Wine Tasting Sail New York Date Night Oct 01, 2018 New York By: Lillian N
What a great time we had! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Richard passed out the wine and was friendly and joked right along with us. He was also very knowledgeable about the wines he was serving. Snacks were perfect. It absolutely helped that we had people on board that were there for a fun time. Only reason I did not give it five stars is because our email said to be there by 3:30 and that we'd leave promptly at 4:00. We didn't begin boarding until almost 4:00. Turns out someone had called that they'd be late. Wonderful to accommodate them but passing the info along would have been helpful to the rest of us. Boarding the boat and waiting would have bee preferable to just standing there. Overall, though, it did nothing to diminish from our experience. Fantastic time!
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so glad you had a lovely evening, despite waiting a while to board. That's a great thought to try and pass along delays to everyone as a head's up. I'll speak with our crew. You've got to love an experience with great wine, snacks, and fun people! Thanks again for your time. Best, Brooke

Brewery Tour in Brooklyn New York Date Night Sep 21, 2018 New York By: Maxine M
I was expecting a tasting from different breweries and not a walk around the neighborhood of what buildings used to be here
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I'm sorry to hear that the tour wasn't what you were expecting. While the description speaks to the historical aspects of the experience, I understand that the title could emphasize this further. Therefore, I've forwarded your comments to our product team to address this, so thank you. I do hope you were still able to learn something new about the history of the neighborhood and of brewing in Brooklyn and enjoyed the beer too! Please note that I've placed $25 in your Cloud 9 Living account for use towards another experience.

Romantic NYC Wine Tasting Sail New York Date Night Sep 04, 2018 New York By: Robert N
Was a great time! Beautiful boat, delish cheeses and meats that are self-serve, excellent crew and explanations of the wine. All the wines tasted great. Looks like they try to max out the boat with passengers but we all fit really well. Don’t bring too much on board. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views and hopefully meet some new friends while on board.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Thanks for the review. What a wonderful, relaxing evening you had! If wine and cheese are around, how can one not be happy?! Best, ​Brooke
Hell's Kitchen Dessert Tour New York Date Night Sep 04, 2018 New York By: Betsy B
Sweet friendly tour guide. The dessert stops were picked more based on story, especially connection to NYC theater, and location than for quality. They were fine, but only one or two were memorable. They also are not New York specific other than existing here. How do you have a NYC dessert tour with no cheesecake? A lack of information about the food and dishes themselves other than at one stop where we happened to catch the owner. I would not recommend this tour unless you are a tourist wanting to get a glimpse of a neighborhood eating some okay sweets. It was nice that the tours are just small groups. It was just us and one other couple.
Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night Aug 28, 2018 New York By: Christine M
This walking tour was both informative and educational. The nice extra was being able to taste a few of the different traditional foods of the area. The amount of people on the tour (12) was perfect. You were able to hear the guide and yet capture the entire experience. The pace of the tour was appropriate and the guide was full of interesting fact and very knowledgeable on the subject matter. He encouraged questions from the people on his tour.

Flatiron Food and History Tour New York Date Night Aug 28, 2018 New York By: Whitney N
Our tour guide was FANTASTIC! She was one of those people who is basically born to do this. Full of energy, super friendly, very informative. Where some other tour guides could deliver the same facts and lose you half way through, I learned so much from listening to her because she was incredibly engaging. The only reason this isn't a 5-star rating is because the food itself wasn't very good. The first stop in Eatly was really the only enjoyable item. So not her fault, of course, and everything else was great.
Romantic NYC Wine Tasting Sail New York Date Night Aug 28, 2018 New York By: Teija G
This was a birthday present from my family. The weather was perfect and it was a good way to relax for two hours. They are generous with the wine and the time, and will stay out sailing for the full two hours before heading back. We stopped at the tip of Manhattan and in front of the Statue of Liberty.

NYC Dessert Tour New York Date Night Aug 28, 2018 New York By: Bruce K
The "dessert tour" was enjoyable. It was basically a tasting at 6 different places that sell different types of desserts. Each site's choice were somewhat limited as to size & selection as part of this "package." The tour guide we had, Brendan, was excellent. Informative, knowledgeable, & loud & clear in his presentation.
Hell's Kitchen Dessert Tour New York Date Night Jun 13, 2018 New York By: Jessica C
Delicious and varied desserts with an amazing tour guide who was very knowledgeable about ALL things to do with New York in general not just our desserts. The staff at each place were friendly and the food was amazing. We only wish that we'd taken the tour at the beginning of our trip rather than the end as we found some amazing gems along the tour not only for desserts but for all sorts of yummy food.

NYC Craft Brewery Tour New York Date Night May 07, 2018 New York By: Taryn A
would recommend that the cadence changes to have pizza after the second brewery, not after the first. we felt that the pizza stop really dragged out the tour, and also the pizza was not that great. we also suggest that the tour has seating at the breweries, understand these are tight spaces, but think it is a reasonable suggestion for the tour to arrange.

NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Jul 21, 2017 New York By: Kate R
The Bateaux Luncheon Excursion is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Just be sure you are not expecting palatable food. The main course was quite interesting. I asked the waitress what the stuffing was in the chicken and she had no idea. She went to inquire and came back and advised it was potato. I tried to eat it, but it was impossible. The chicken was overcooked -- in fact completely dried out. The stuffing was simply mashed potatoes with some spices. I could not and did not eat it. Accompanying the chicken were about 12 thin, tasteless green beans. My party of four women were among the last to leave the boat. I forgot my hat, which was a very large straw brimmed sun hat -- which had La Vie En Rose inked on in a light pink. About an hour and a half after we left the boat, I called the number I could find and was told nothing could be done. I asked for the number that would connect me to the NY office by the boat -- I was given a number which took me right back to the call center. No one seemed to care about helping me. I was told Lost & Found will be open on Monday and would be in touch. Would I go again, NO. Not because of the boat or the food, but because of the indifference about helping me get my hat back.

We went on the sweet tooth dessert tour and it was amazing! It gave us the opportunity to try desserts we normally wouldn't order, in places we probably wouldn't have found on our own! Every single dessert we tried was the best thing we ever tasted until we went to the next destination! I would most definitely recommend this tour to anyone who love dessert!!
New York Harbor Sail New York Date Night Jun 08, 2017 New York By: Amanda C
We are local New Yorkers, not visiting tourists, and we very much enjoyed this sailing experience. It is a beautiful view to see the city and the Statue of Liberty from the harbor while being on a sail boat instead of a crowded ferry. The experience was relaxing, the crew and captain were fun and engaging, and the onboard bar allowed for a nice glass of wine. We would highly recommend this sail and would consider gifting it to friends as well. Great for couples, families with kids, or a group of friends.
SoHo Wine Tour New York Date Night May 26, 2017 New York By: Mary M
Our guide Amy was great. She was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. She took the mystery out of ordering wine and put everyone at ease.

This was supposed to be a three-restaurant wine tour. We only went to two restaurants, and it lasted 1:45 minutes versus the 2 hours that was planned. The host was very friendly, but dry new to wine (he admitted so). Good experience but not worth the money.

West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Apr 18, 2017 New York By: Lisa M
Had done the SoHo wine tour previously and heard the West Village one was better. We disagreed. We were disappointed that there were only 2 restaurant spots on this tour, and disappointing small bites were being paired with the wine. We had fun but would recommend the SoHo tour over this one.

Very pleasant and educational/entertaining afternoon. It was 3 hours of walking through historical areas of Greenwich Village (West Village I learned) while a friendly, informed and patient tour guide did her thing. The food stops were fascinating and gave us plenty of nourishment (not sure about calorie intake, but the 3 hours of walking made up for it). Highly recommend.

Joshua was a great guide, full of knowledge and happy to expand on any topic that we touched on. He had organized 8 stops I think, each of which included a sample or two of locally produced foods/drinks. It was a freezing January day in NY. We didn't notice it with the constant flow of information and the stops. Time very well spent. Thank you.

NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Aug 29, 2016 New York By: Elizabeth P
Everyone on the boat was very nice, but the service was slow and the air conditioning was not working properly. It was a 90 degree day, so it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. I actually felt faint and nauseous due to the heat and being on the water. It was not a good experience at all unfortunately.
Lobster and Beer Lovers Sail New York Date Night Aug 05, 2016 New York By: Alexis T
We couldn't have asked for a better NYC night. The boat was beautiful and clean and the staff was very knowledgeable. The lobster and beer provided on the boat were awesome --- definitely a night to remember and would do it again in a heart beat!
Brooklyn Navy Yard Tour New York Date Night Jul 21, 2016 New York By: Amy Y
The bus tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard was very interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the actual tour, much more history, civil engineering, and subjects of local interest. He was an excellent speaker, and I could hear and understand every word he spoke. The historical photographs he showed us of the Navy Yard enhanced our views on the ground considerably. The starting point for the tour, Building 92, was a great destination in itself. It is a nicely done exhibit of the Navy Yard, past and present. I want to spend some more time there in the future.
NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Jul 18, 2016 New York By: JEFFREY D
This was fun, the food on the cruise was top notch. Our waiters were very friendly. Some of the servers handing out rolls and salads could have cared less, but they weren't impolite. The piano player wasn't that great, simple background music without the banter and improvised song parodies would have been better. Boat left and returned on time, everything was clean. Parking at the Piers is expensive: place on 22nd was $25 for the time we were there. This would have been better if we planned more time or other activities in the City. We spent a lot of time driving from CT just for lunch. One tip: know the name of the boat -- Pier 64 gets you close, but there are several tours in the area.
NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Jul 06, 2016 New York By: Anne S
We loved the cruise along the Hudson and the East River. It was a great way to see Manhattan. We are visiting from Australia. The experience was booked for us by our children as a Mother's' Day gift. The main meal (chicken), was delicious. The salad and cheesecake were less appealing. Thank you.
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night Jun 28, 2016 New York By: Sara C
I love the Hudson River rafting experience. I felt extremely safe with our experienced guide, even though it was my first time rafting. It is definitely an active experience, which I loved! We paddled our way through the white water, but also had a chance to relax and swim. Some parts of the river are truly spectacular. It really is an experience to be in almost complete wilderness, floating down a river. Overall, I would definitely recommend it. It is well-organized, the guides are extremely knowledgeable, it's truly worth your money, and it's a great intro to white water rafting if you go in the month of June!
NYC Pizza, Beer and History Tour New York Date Night Jun 13, 2016 New York By: Axel C
Great tour, awesome tour guide. She was amazing. Will go on more tours, especially if we have her there.
Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night Jun 01, 2016 New York By: Barry S
So, my daughter decided to give us this tour as an anniversary gift. She had given us one of these tour before, and we loved it so much, she decided to give us another one. What made this one special was our guide, Brian Hoffman. His enthusiasm and knowledge truly made this an exceptional experience. It combined the best of history, sightseeing and local flavor. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone coming to NYC.
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night May 31, 2016 New York By: Craig H
It was fun but of the six wines we tried, my wife and I only liked one of them. Instructor was very knowledgeable but because we know a lot about wine, we didn't learn much. You should advertise it as a wine walk for novices.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night May 31, 2016 New York By: Katherine H
This was a really fun food and history tour, by a friendly and knowledgeable guide.

Easy to figure out which experience I wanted to book and easy to book it.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Apr 21, 2016 New York By: Simone P
Everything was very good, fun, informative and casual. What I didn't care for was that 90% of the tastings were done outside on the sidewalk. Fortunately it was a gorgeous day but had it been raining, we would have suffered. Really enjoyed Ian as our guide.
Manhattan Architecture Cruise New York Date Night Apr 18, 2016 New York By: Terence P
The architect who narrated the tour provided wonderful insight to all the building and other structures on the tour around island of Manhattan. He had some staff members available for additional information when needed. There were so many sights to see, and getting an understanding of both the structural and social reasons for the topic being discussed was excellent. I had never seen the northern section of the area before this trip. The tour moved at a pleasant pace.
Manhattan Architecture Cruise New York Date Night Mar 15, 2016 New York By: Frank R
New York is the "Venice of the world" and this boat cruise with the Architecture narration reinforces my quote. Had a great time.
NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Jan 29, 2016 New York By: Tina S
We loved both Cloud 9 Living experiences we booked. First was a sightseeing lunch cruise on the Hudson River. It was fantastic. The food was delicious. A wonderful NEW way to see New York City! Second, we did a paint night at the #1 paint studio in New York, and it did not disappoint. We had an amazing time. Lots of laughs & memories! Will be going back to do these again!

NYC Bateaux - Gourmet Sightseeing Lunch Cruise New York Date Night Nov 10, 2015 New York By: Saahir P
My wife and I never really do things like this, but this was definitely a different experience. We have been New Yorkers our whole lives, and this is the first time we've done something like this. It was a lot of fun, and the service was great. Food was pretty good, but I wish they had more options.
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Nov 09, 2015 New York By: Caryn B
Had such a great experience! Made friends with the other people on the tour! Overall a fabulous day!
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Nov 04, 2015 New York By: Lorraine L
Thoroughly enjoyed this food tour in West Village! A great way to explore the area! Very relaxed and chilled-out experience! Our guide (Lynsey) was knowledgeable and approachable, as well as friendly and engaging! I would recommend this experience to others!
NYC Sunset Cruise New York Date Night Nov 03, 2015 New York By: Andrew Z
We sat for 40 minutes (this is not an approximation or exaggeration -- I clocked it) off the shore not moving, with no explanation as why we were there, and then as soon as it was almost at the 2 hour mark we went back and docked. It was listed as a 2 hour tour. And yes, we were on the water/boat for 2 hours -- but otherwise very misleading and frustrating. Book with another tour operator. This was terrible. (Terrible for a paid tour; we were still on the water looking back at NY so the experience itself still had some merit.)
Beer Tasting Sail New York Date Night Nov 03, 2015 New York By: Patti L
Experience was awesome!! Ship was clean and had all amenities. Staff was awesome -- everyone was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the beers. Captain steered close to Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, so pictures were great. Most enjoyable afternoon!
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Nov 03, 2015 New York By: Robert C
Enjoyable time, met good people, learned about some nice wines and some nice restaurants to visit in the future. A lot of fun and not much walking, which for us was a plus. The guide (Michael) was fun and added to the overall experience with his knowledge and experiences.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Oct 16, 2015 New York By: James L
It was an awesome experience. Lindsey, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and relatable! The tour was fun and the food was great! Recommend it to do again!
Manhattan Architecture Cruise New York Date Night Oct 16, 2015 New York By: Ken R
Received the tour as a gift. I really wasn't too excited about it as it just isn't my thing. Boy was I wrong. The tour was great. The narrator Joseph was not only extremely knowledgeable about the sights but was enthusiastic in his delivery, which made the time fly by. The entire crew as well as the experience was wonderful.
Manhattan Architecture Cruise New York Date Night Sep 25, 2015 New York By: Sara S
The boat was gorgeous -- brand new and couldn't have been more comfortable and conducive to the tour. The tour guide was wonderful, interesting, and kept our attention the entire time. It is a unique experience to go all the way up the Hudson and through the Harlem sound and river, and it was just beautiful. The staff were all friendly and attentive, with great drink and good food. We really had a great time, and it exceeded all of our expectations.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Sep 25, 2015 New York By: Samantha S
Ian was a fun tour guide. I appreciated the real estate info that he mentioned! I wasn't as interested in the theater landmarks he pointed out, but I'm sure they would have been very welcome to someone else. The food stops were a little underwhelming; I must have been expecting shops that were a little more off the beaten path. But, the food was good, and getting to see all the little streets was fun.
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Sep 22, 2015 New York By: Siobhan M
Wine tour was great and I would definitely recommend it to friends or try one in another neighborhood. Our guide (Miles) was very knowledgeable and informative and made it a truly great experience for everyone that was on the tour.
West Village Wine Tour New York Date Night Sep 22, 2015 New York By: Cathleen F
Pros: We had a very nice time, talked the guide's ear off, and learned a lot about wine. The restaurants we went to were all very nice; the second (Home) had a really great appetizer. The guide was very friendly, and worked hard to make us feel comfortable and have a nice time. Cons: I had expected to taste more than 6 wines with the experience; the booking had said 3-4 locations, and I figured if it was only 3 we would taste a little more at each place. $50 per person per place for 2 half-glasses of wine and a few snacks, like 2 pieces of chocolate, was pretty pricey. The major disappointment was that when I was booking we were told that a maximum of 12 people were permitted on a tour, and my family took up all 12 spots. My brother could have come as well but we thought we were at the maximum. Then we arrived at the location and another couple had been added to our tour. I don't know if this was a mistake on their part or yours, but we would have brought another person or two had there been room.
Beer Tasting Sail New York Date Night Sep 22, 2015 New York By: Lori T
The ship makes a series of circles in one area of the Hudson River for two hours. Not what I was expecting. The crew was friendly but not talkative. Overall it's not a bad experience, it is somewhat disappointing though.
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night Sep 14, 2015 New York By: Randee L
We went White Water Rafting on the Hudson and our experience couldn't have been better. We had to re-schedule our initial trip and the staff at ARO was so friendly and accommodating. The entire staff was fun and knowledgeable. It was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone, regardless of age. They have a great photographer as well that shoots amazing action shots as you raft. We were able to get them on a disk before we left. The feast they provide after the trip is worth a mention as well!
NYC Sunset Cruise New York Date Night Sep 09, 2015 New York By: David K
It is helpful to see the availability before purchasing an experience. The bartender on the boat was a little rude and not friendly.

Tall Ship Jazz Sail New York Date Night Aug 04, 2015 New York By: Pamela D
We had the perfect weather conditions when we experienced sailing on the tall ship cruise on the Hudson River in the evening hours. The ship was not crowded, so everyone had space to walk around and sit down. Looking at the NYC and NJ skylines at night, along with listening to great jazz music, just made the evening more special for us. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves.
Tall Ship Jazz Sail New York Date Night Jul 31, 2015 New York By: Kacey G
I received my Tall Ship Jazz Sail as a Christmas gift . It was an amazing time! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the smooth jazz band on a romantic trip on the harbor in NYC. The view of the city at night was spectacular. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for something different to do in the city other than the standard dinner and a show.

Trapeze Lesson New York Date Night Jul 06, 2015 New York By: SHREEDA S
Trapeze with 'I Fly Li' was amazing! The instructors were so friendly and encouraging! I would definitely do this again. We had a great time!
Trapeze Lesson New York Date Night Jul 02, 2015 New York By: Andrew B
We had the trapeze lessons for two last Saturday and had a blast! The staff gave great instruction and feedback to help us improve our experience. Best of all, the staff was enthusiastic and fun. My only critique concerns the information provided about the location. A street address was provided, but it would have been helpful to know that the venue was located in Eisenhower Park near the aquatic center. Also, you should tell customers that they will need to pay a park fee if they are not residents of Nassau County. Luckily we had some cash with us!

Hell's Kitchen Dessert Tour New York Date Night Apr 02, 2015 New York By: Neel K
Great experience and a lot of fun. Would be nice if more milk/beverages were available. We wrote our food allergies in advance, but I don't think they were acknowledged until we were asked/mentioned it at the beginning of the tour. Great tour overall and a lot of fun. Thanks.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Mar 26, 2015 New York By: Alex O
The West Village food tour with Ian from Sidewalks of New York was excellent! My friend and I had so much fun. I have lived in New York for 8 months and learned so much on the tour -- from history, to pop culture and cool new places to eat and drink in the area. Each food stop was delicious, and Ian knew the answer to every random question we threw at him. He was a great guide -- super fun and knowledgeable! Highly recommended.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Mar 26, 2015 New York By: Victoria S
Our guide Ian was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful experience, and look forward to doing more sidewalk tours.

The West Village Food Tour was great. Dante was our tour guide, and he was terrific. The places we stopped at were yummy, and the amounts of food were perfect. We will definitely book another tour.
Brewery Tour in Brooklyn New York Date Night Mar 02, 2015 New York By: Michelle H
We had Josh as our Brooklyn Brewery guide. He was obviously very passionate about the history of Brooklyn as well as the history of beer in Brooklyn and was eager to share his knowledge with us. He had great intuition and could pick up on when individuals in our group were keen to hear more, or when they wanted to simply kick back and enjoy the product. He was more than happy to accommodate either. I would totally recommend this to anyone, either tourists or locals.
NYC Pizza, Beer and History Tour New York Date Night Feb 02, 2015 New York By: Nandan P
Overall good experience! However it would be good for guests to be given one full slice of pizza, instead of two slices made out of one split slice of pizza.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Nov 24, 2014 New York By: Ronald G
Ian was our tour guide. My wife and I were impressed with Ian's knowledge, sense of humor, and presentation. No complaints... awesome job!!!! We have already recommended Cloud 9 Living to our children and friends.
Brewery Tour in Brooklyn New York Date Night Oct 30, 2014 New York By: Hugh S
Brian Hoffman was our guide for a tour of the breweries and historic areas of Brooklyn, NY. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this tour. His sense of humor and approach to the tour made it even more interesting, and his enthusiasm brought even the less interesting items to life and made it very enjoyable for the group. The diversity of the tour (breweries, older neighborhoods, churches, etc.,) made the tour very interesting and sparked our interest to learn more about the Williamsburg neighborhood. I would absolutely recommend this tour, and recommend Brian as the guide. Outstanding.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Sep 22, 2014 New York By: Lisa S
The West Village Tours was great. We are New Yorkers and still enjoyed it! It was great to learn history about the Village we never knew before as well as taste good food. Our tour guide Dante, was very knowledgeable, pleasant and great to tour with.

Allyson was a wonderful guide, and quite knowledgeable about the city. It was a pleasant and enjoyable afternoon as we tasted the various dessert available in Hell's Kitchen. Just the right amount of walking.
Tall Ship Sailing Experience New York Date Night Aug 25, 2014 New York By: Connie R
Would have enjoyed a knowledgeable person giving all of us some information about the different places of interest the ship passed along the way. We had a beautiful day out in the harbor; the people working on the ship were wonderful.
West Village Food Tour New York Date Night Aug 07, 2014 New York By: Maritza F
My husband, daughter, and I enjoyed the tour. The only thing we would've changed was the order of the restaurants. We would've preferred to start with bagels and end with dessert (cupcakes). Other than that, it was a great experience.
New York Food Cart Walking Tour New York Date Night Jul 11, 2014 New York By: Tania H
I absolutely loved my walking tour of the street vendors in New York. I didn't expect to get so much food or gain so much knowledgce about how it all works. Very, very happy and would highly recommend to anyone.
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night Jul 08, 2014 New York By: John S
Had a great time on this adventure, trip covered 17 miles on the Indian and Hudson Rivers, we were on the river for approx 6 hours. Had some great rapids and a few spots to jump off the raft and do some swimming. Our guide Heather was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. The entire crew at ARO was fantastic and the BBQ at the end was great. Would do this trip again.
NYC Sunset Cruise New York Date Night Jun 30, 2014 New York By: Ashley T
I bought this for my husband's 32 birthday and we both loved the experience. We live here in the city but never get to get out on the water and see the city from the view this boat was able to provide. Though we have both seen the Statue of Liberty, we were in awe of the beauty with the sun setting as its backdrop. We also thought the boat was not to crowded which was nice to be able to sit some and stand/walk around. Towards the end of the ride it got chilly and the boat staff handed out blankets. This was greatly appreciated since it was late June and no one was expecting it to be as cool as it was. Overall the experience was great and highly recommended.
Beer Tasting Sail New York Date Night May 28, 2014 New York By: Meghan G
We had a great day for the beer tasting on the Clipper City ship. The staff was very helpful and fun. We are talking about doing it again with a bigger group of people.
Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night May 28, 2014 New York By: Maureen M
Native New Yorkers so there were a couple of facts we did not know, guide was knowledgeable and aimed to please. We are active seniors but the long walk without a break to sit down was difficult , the walking was fast paced and we were just worn out at the end. A break with a place to sit down in the middle would have been good. We regularly walk a mile to a mile and 1/2 each day at a minimum but this did wear us out, I even fell , a first for me, I was just so tired.
Tenements, Tales & Tastes of the Lower East Side New York Date Night May 12, 2014 New York By: Kevin A
Our Cloud 9 tour certificate was a gift from our son and daughter in law at Christmas time and until the actual time of booking a date from Australia, we did not realise that Urban Tours would be the company we would be linked with. The experience with Urban Tours was exceptional and we loved every minute. Karen our tour guide is so knowledgable and enthusiastic and we learned so much about the very early days of New York City. The 3 plus hours flew past and we would have to say that this tour was the highlight of our week in New York. Highly recommend this tour with Karen Brueckner. In fact a tour not to be missed!
Brooklyn Navy Yard Tour New York Date Night May 06, 2014 New York By: Joseph B

Hell's Kitchen Dessert Tour New York Date Night Mar 20, 2014 New York By: Patricia D
The selection of individually owned stores and the background information on the owners made the tour unusually interesting. All the desserts were outstanding and our reception in the stores was friendly. I really enjoyed the experience.
New York Food Cart Walking Tour New York Date Night Jan 08, 2014 New York By: Patricia P
We will never look at a food carts the same, after taking the Financial District Food Cart's Tour within New York City. Brian was our guide, and did an outstanding job educating us on the various aspects of New York City's tastiest food carts! As one who knows his subject, Brian was witty, knowledgeable and friendly. His enthusiasm was infectious as he led us through the streets of New York's financial district, lending us some very tasty food cart cuisine! When you think of it, those food carts located within the financial district would likely be the very best, because they, unlike those in touristy Manhattan, survive on repeat/local business (you know...those white collar types who really know what good food is). Thus, our tour was one we'll remember, not only because of the tasty treats we were given, but because of the wealth of interesting facts Brian provided about the cart's history, what one must go through to even get a cart on the street, the cleanliness factor of the carts, and even the history of many of the characters who operate them. Our tour was one of the most fun things we did while in The Big Apple (and we visit annually and do lots of stuff). The food from the several carts was tasty (we're not talking hot dogs here), and Brian was the perfect guide, gentleman and entertainer! Plan to walk a bit...not a tour for those who have difficulty navigating the sidewalk. We heartily recommend this tour without abandon!

I have been to New York plenty of times, and while this included a lot of history I knew, I still learned a lot. The eateries chosen were very diverse and represented the city well. My tour guide was excellent and friendly. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a taste of New York City.

New York Harbor Sail New York Date Night Sep 19, 2013 New York By: Frank M
I bought the Shearwater sailing tour around NY Harbor. We found the dock very easily. However, I had a little trouble finding the boat b/c the sign for it was below sight level. Other than that, we had a great experience. The boat is beautiful and the staff were great. They were very attentive and answered any questions anyone had. It is a very relaxing way to see the New York City Skyline. It was one of the most beautiful days of the summer so that helped to enjoy it even more. I would highly recommend this trip.

This is not a narrated tour so if you want to learn about the sites you are seeing this is not the tour for you. For a great, relaxing evening and picturesque views at sunset and dusk, this is a fabulous trip. Limited seating so come early to secure a spot if you are unable to stand for 2 hours.

The Jazz Cruise was wonderful. Great music and views! Boat could have more seating. Thanks
Tall Ship Sailing Experience New York Date Night Aug 19, 2013 New York By: Aaron B
Everything was good. Great day on the boat. Just wish the crew would have talked and told us about the different iconic places we past. That would have MADE the trip.

We really enjoyed Dante. He was very knowledgeable and funny. He was very good at projecting his voice, which is real important so everyone can hear. Thanks again, Rick and Karen
Brooklyn Navy Yard Tour New York Date Night Jun 19, 2013 New York By: Tom K
I will be recommending Cloud 9 Living to my friends. The booking was easy and the language was clear. My family very much enjoyed the tour to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Alex, the tour guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. He met the group in the museum building which had bathrooms and water. The tour was part bus & part walking. The bus was air conditioned and comfortable. There was just the right amount of walking. The Brooklyn Navy Yard has an amazing history and future. The tour provides a great way to learn all about it.
New York Harbor Sail New York Date Night Jan 14, 2013 New York By: Christopher F
The crew was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. The ship itself was clean, beautiful and unique when you went under the deck. The only issue I would say is the seating is a little scarce, but my girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get the seat we wanted and had a wonderful time!

Alex was great!

New York Food Cart Walking Tour New York Date Night Oct 29, 2012 New York By: Linda F
What a serendipitous experience. The eight members of our group, our guide Brian and certainly the food made for a magical time in midtown Manhattan.

For the price of the tour, we felt very little was offered.

A wonderful sail ... a great time.
Carroll Gardens Food Tour New York Date Night Oct 01, 2012 New York By: Arielle R
Food was delicious. If I had to suggest, I would say more of a mix of sweet and savory tastings...too many sweets when it's recommended to not eat lunch before arriving. Otherwise, the guide was knowledgeable and engaging, as well as friendly and fun.
New York City Lights Sail New York Date Night Aug 18, 2012 New York By: Frank T
Although the weather was absolutely perfect and the view of the city lights was beautiful, the actual experience was somewhat disappointing. The Captain offered no commentary at all. All you did was sit and admire the view of the city lights but you didn't know what you were seeing. For those who were not from the area, the experience could have been enhanced had the captain shared that information. To add credibility to my comment, a fellow passenger asked me what some of the sights were. On a positive note, the crew did raise the sails and the engine was shut down so the boat was then being powered by the wind and sails. That was a very nice experience for someone who has never sailed before. Additionally, the crew was very friendly and accommodating.
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night May 31, 2012 New York By: Roy S
The white water rafting company was very organized, explained everything very well, the guide (Chester) was very friendly & it was obvious that they wanted to be sure everyone was having a good time! The BBQ at the end was delicious & a perfect ending to a perfect day!
Tall Ship Sailing Experience New York Date Night May 31, 2012 New York By: Dale P
It was a wonderful experience. I came much earlier then required and your staff was nice enough to take care of me and give me my tickets. That was the start of a good time being booked in. Had the pleasure of seeing a wedding unboard your earlier ship. What a beautiful experience, you should adversite more for getting married on the ship.
Tall Ship Sailing Experience New York Date Night May 22, 2012 New York By: Diane F
We had a great time. This staff was friendly and funny. We were highly entertained. The boat was clean and well maintained. We especially enjoyed the bartender. She was very friendly and outgoing. She was mixing drinks that tasted very good, especially the ones with Jamaican Ginger Beer, something we never heard of. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

My boyfriend and I had a blast! Not only was our tour guide friendly and fun, but very informative. The food was amazing and we were able to contribute to the local businesses. Will be definitely be doing this again.

We had a fabulous time on the Hudson river sail! It was doubly delightful because of the amazing weather we had. Would highly recommend this experience/excursion!

Perfect gift for friends, family, and clients. The NY Harbor Sail was easy, beautiful, unique and we will book it again in a heartbeat. I loved it!
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night Aug 25, 2011 New York By: Tina C
The only issue that we had with the experience was how crowded the river was with white water outfits and rafts. There was a total traffic jam getting onto the river. Must have been close to 50 rafts trying to get on the water. It opened up once we got on the water and the rafting was fun but there were too many people to make it an intimate experience. Cloud 9 set up was superb. Staff was super friendly and very responsive and followed up with confirmations. Would highly recommend them.
NYC Sunset Cruise New York Date Night Aug 23, 2011 New York By: James W
We truly enjoyed our 2 hour sail on the Clipper City Tall Ship from 7-9pm. The evening started out with a huge thunder storm while we were waiting to board the vessel, and it seemed like the sail would be called off.But because of the expert experience and good judgement of Captain Robert Griffith, we all waited out the storm on the dock, the skies soon cleared, and off we sailed to enjoy a beautiful evening aboard this magnificent vessel. Capt. Griffith and the crew were outstanding and made everyone on board feel relaxed and comfortable. We had a great time, and I have recommended the evening sail to many of our family and friends. Thank you for a most enjoyable experience! Jim & Carol Westervelt

Great experience, very friendly crew.
Hudson River White Water Rafting New York Date Night May 17, 2011 New York By: Philip R
The experience was incredible and the staff was amazing and friendly. The only problem we encountered was that the snack was a peanut butter sandwich, of which we are allergic, but the guides did tell us before we ate them. However, if I knew in advance I would have brought some fruit. The rafting part of the trip was very much fun and the guide, John, was very informative and friendly. Great job all around.

Breathtaking! Everything from start to finish was amazing. The captain and his mates were very nice and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better time, truly one of the best experiences we have had!
Trapeze Lesson New York Date Night Dec 03, 2008 New York By: Mary S
Just want you all to know it has been a very exciting time learning how to fly with you. I really appreciate how you all encourage the confidence in us so we can let go of the fear and fly!

Hi Jeanmarie, We think you're pretty wonderful too! Glad to hear you enjoyed your tour! Cheers, Inah 
Hoboken Historical Food Tour New York Date Night Dec 31, 1969 New York By: Nancy P
We really enjoyed our visit to Hoboken and hearing about the history of the town and seeing many of the remaining mom and pop shops. We especially liked our visit to the mozzarella bosses shop. This tour would be even better if we got to meet more of the owners of the stores and hearing their stories.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Nancy, Thank you for sharing! I'm glad you had a fun time. I'm sure meeting the owners was a great perk and I'd be happy to pass your suggestion on to the tour company. Warm Regards, Inah
Hoboken Historical Food Tour New York Date Night Dec 31, 1969 New York By: Charles B
Granted, Hoboken NJ is not Disneyland or New York, but it is filled with interesting history and cultural artifacts that have survived The Great Depression, Hurricane Sandy, and a yuppie invasion. Avi was very knowledgeable as a guide, having a background in the restaurant/food industry, and made the tour quite interesting. My only suggestion was that the food consumption should be more evenly spaced during the walking instead of bunched up toward the end. The booking/confirmation process through Cloud 9 was initially less than satisfactory. I received this experience as a Christmas gift in December 2015. I booked and confirmed my redeem date weeks in advance of June of 2016, for which I had to drive to NJ from Ohio--over 6 hours. On the day of my arrival (day before the tour), I received a call that the experience had been cancelled due to lack of participants. Given the distance I had to travel, that was completely unacceptable. Interestingly, I ended up in Hoboken that Saturday anyway when I heard about the Hoboken Music and Arts Fair. Could THAT have been the reason for the cancellation? Hopefully, communication between Cloud 9 and its subcontractors (Mangia Hoboken) has improved since then.

Romantic NYC Wine Tasting Sail New York Date Night Dec 31, 1969 New York By: Rachel M
My boyfriend and I absolutely enjoyed our evening on the Schooner, we loved the variety of cheeses paired with the wines and most importantly the views! Every crew member was super friendly and very informational and helpful. We did the 4pm wine tasting this past Saturday but would love to try the other sails they offer!
