Definitively a "must see" when in NYC. However, nothing spectacular. I would reccommend getting tickets to the "crown" of the statue in order to get the view. Limited what you can see just walking around the monument. A typical "been there done that". However, the view of Manhattan Skyline is fantastic.

I had always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty, and I was really not disappointed, surprised it is not as big as I imagined, but she is one gorgeous lady. I could feel the history of the statue, when you imagine how many people have visited it.

This iconic statue becomes more spectacular the closer you get and by both day and night. We saw it from the Staten Island Ferry, from a helicopter over the Hudson and from a Bateaux Dinner Cruise also on the Hudson. It is the symbol that is New York and richly deserves to be. Stunning.

I booked our Crown tickets 3 months in advance. We arrived at 8am and the ticket booth opened at 8.30am. We were second in line so collected our tickets quickly. We asked what we did next and were told to go through the gap in the wall. This we did. People were just hanging around. We finally went through and... More

This trip was a winner. Be prepared to get cold at this time of year but the tour guide on the ferry was great and very informative.

The ferry ride is pleasant with fabulous views of Manhattan and even better views of Lady Liberty on the approach. The overall visit was great except for number of flights required to get to the viewing deck at her base. The elevator had no operator so we were had no access that way. We did get some fabulous pictures of... More

We thought this trip to Statue of Liberty and Ellis island was great value for money. Great to be up close to the stage of liberty and climb up inside and see the views looking back st Manhattan

We took the ferry ride on Miss New York from Pier 48. Lots of tourists but this ferry let's you off on the island and offers an audio guide with the $18.50 ticket. Learn about what Liberty meant when France gifted her to NY. Enjoy great views of Manhattan, Brooklyn along the way. The ferry stops on Ellis Island as... More

I'm afraid we found the SoL a bit underwhelming, but you have to put that in context with the other superb attractions in NYC, just appreciate the history attached to the old lady and that'l do. The ferry was heaving but thankfully its a short trip so that's not really a problem, I hate to think what its like at... More
