Hi! What's the difference between this trip and the one for children? I read the description and they're both the same.

HI Sreekrishna! if you are referring to the adult class (https://coursehorse.com/nyc/classes/life-skills/tour/full-day-cruise-to-bear-mountain-and-back) and this children's class, they are the same. The only difference is the age group.
