Low Price Guarantee
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. Access to the Liberty Island Museum is included. 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.

No trip to New York would be complete without a visit to the Statue of Liberty. I would suggest you go on the earliest tour as the crowds soon gather and although Liberty is a big lady I can imagine the number of people on...More
We enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide was Owen and he was very informative, nice and outgoing. I wouldn't recommend this tour for children under the age of 10 due to lots of walking and taking multiple ferries that are crowded. Overall great tour.
Highly recommend this small group tour.Jen had everything organized and ready to go at our Battery Park meeting place. We toured in the rain but Jen was positive throughout and we had a great experience. She is so knowledgeable of these national park areas. But...More

The trip by boat is not that long. Once on the island, you can stay as long as you wish - there is a small museum there along with gift shop in addition to what tour of the statue itself you manage to take (walk around outside only, go into the base only, go up to the crown only). Your time here is really on you - once you have seen all you want to see, jump on the next boat that moves you on to Ellis Island (at least that was the one I booked). Should allow at least an hour on the latter, but you could spend two or more hours on the former - we boarded at about 11 I believe and got back with no rushing at about 4:30/5:00, which was our intent.
