Overview

Visits to the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island are musts in the Big Apple. On this guided tour, you get priority boarding on the ferry from Manhattan to visit the two important historical sites. Visit the grounds of Liberty Island and go inside the Statue of Liberty Museum. Then hop the ferry to Ellis Island and learn about the millions of people who arrived here between 1892 and 1954 in hope of living the American dream.

For the comprehensive 4 hour option, you will have Pedestal Monument access not offered with most other tours. Go inside the pedestal for a unique perspective from the observation deck and from inside the Statue.

For the Express 2 hour without Pedestal access, we will have an optimized itinerary to see both Islands fast with guided Liberty Island tour. You may stay as long as you wish after the tour.

Wonderful, well organised with plenty of time to take everything in. It's the best way to do it so you don't miss out on anything a.nd you learn so much more with a guide than you could on your own.

Mike was an excellent tour guide with lots of energy and clear knowledge of both the history of the sites as well as how to best capture your time visiting.

Tim was a excellent!! He had really good knowledge of the history and told it well. He was also very cognizant of those of our group who did not speak English as their 1st language and adapted to ensure they could have the best experience. He also went above and beyond and made sure that we all got really good pics. The tour itself was great too - the right amount of time at each of the locations!!

We enjoyed the visit with Sara, our guide, a very professional, competent and pleasant person.
She gave us very complete and precise explanations.
We had a wonderful time in the history of America thanks to her.

I can't adequately describe how pleased we were with this tour. The guide was very polite, prompt, and knowledgeable. Being able to skip the regular line was well worth it, and I highly recommend going for the first tour as we saw how crowded it got later in the day. The Ellis Island part was not quite as good, but still excellent. We were very pleased with this tour and it was well worth it.
