Overview

Enjoy a seamless visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York Harbor. This tour benefits from early reserve-line access for a round-trip ferry trip, as well as an optional early morning departure time that puts you ahead of many sightseers. Your guide takes you through Lady Liberty’s pedestal and to its observation decks, as well as through the Great Hall exhibits at Ellis Island.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group in front of Castle Clinton National Monument in Battery Park at least 15 minutes before the start of your Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour. From there, your guide escorts you to the ferry, where you can skip the lines with early reserve-line boarding.

The ferry drops you off on Liberty Island where your guide takes you to pedestal of the Statue of Liberty and the observation decks.

Your guide helps you transition from place to place, so you never waste time asking for directions or getting lost. After you’re done at the statue, head back to the ferry for your ride to Ellis Island.

Explore the island with your guide in the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Then decide if you’d like to stay and wander the island more on your own. Your tour ends with a ferry ride back to Battery Park.

Great tour. Great tour guide

Our guide, John Capes was awesome. Don’t see these attractions without a guide. He knew all the ropes and the inside scoop.

Glad I went better than expected

I am not one who enjoys a guided group tour. I either like to explore on my own and stay away from anything touristy or I engage a private tour. This tour was a group tour and delightful. I loved how our guide interacted with...More
