Small-Group Tour of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
From US$57.00
Overview

See two major New York City attractions on this half-day tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Skip the line at Liberty Island Ferry, and travel with your small group to Lady Liberty for a pedestal tour and observation deck visit. Your guide explains immigration history, and your visit to Ellis Island includes Great Hall entrance and free time before the return ferry.

What to Expect

Make your way to Battery Park to meet your guide and group at least 15 minutes before your departure. Together, skip the lines for priority access to Liberty Island Ferry.

The ferry whisks you to Liberty Island where, with your guide leading the way, you’ll tour the Statue of Liberty Museum and hear commentary on the statue’s rich history to go along with the displays. Head to the observation deck for views and photos before hopping back on the ferry, bound for Ellis Island.

Land on Ellis Island and listen as your guide paints a verbal picture of what it must have been like for immigrants landing there throughout the years. Visit the Great Hall to see family photos, hear personal stories, and trace your own family history.

Finish up around midday. You are free to explore further and return to Manhattan via ferry when you wish.

Yes plenty of time but not to the crown. You can climb the 200 plus steps or take an elevator and still climb about 50 (?) steps to the bottom of the Statue of Liberty. It’s a really good tour!
