Definitely worth your time and money. The Ellis island tour that goes with the ticket is very interesting. Food is expensive. We wished we had eaten at the Ellis island cafeteria after we got to liberty island. The Liberty Island cafeteria was super busy and...More

We visited in August, with two teenage children. Plan in some extra time to take into account the extra security before boarding and watch that you have photo ID. We booked the crown tour and casually thought we would take the 347 steps in our...More

The first couple of times I was in NY I didn't see the statue of liberty. This time I'm glad I did. To start the landmark is iconic and is very impressive in person. I went up to the pedestal and the views were great...More

Took the Statue Cruise to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Very glad we went. Only tickets to the base of the Statue were available--tickets to the crown were sold out. However, the climb to the stairs was plenty, as was the view!

Be prepared for a wait to catch the boat to and from the Statue of Liberty. The museum at the base is very good to see what all went into building this statue. Great views from here back to Manhattan.

This really is a must go place being one of the iconic NYC landmarks. It's incredibly busy as you'd expect but seems reasonably well organised with ferries departing at least every 20 to 30 minutes. Tip: If you've not booked get here before 11 or...More

Is "Book Your Guide" the name of the company from where you are buying your tickets? If so, ask them. If they don't offer crown tickets, maybe the National Park Service, who runs the monument can guide you. They have an... More
