Vivian was excellent and we had a beautiful memorable day . Weather was fantastic. Highly recommended

The whole thing was a disaster. One hour and twenty minutes to get through security in 40 degree weather. Tiur guide was useless. No such thing as skip the line. As a very frequent customer, I’m requesting a refund. Feel free to call me for more detail.

The tour guide Vivian was very nice and knowledgeable. We had a great time seeing both the state of liberty and Ellis Island!

It was a rainy day, but we ferried over to the Statue of Liberty and our guide started pointing out historic facts before we even left the port. He had a vast knowledge of New York and he willingly offered answers to all our questions. Admission to the inside of the statue of Liberty is only achieved through the Parks Department. Our guide seemed to have less to offer re: Ellis Island

This is the first Viator tour I would not recommend. Febreze have a quick review of the program for the day. Explained the flag pole from the Dutch and got us in line for the ferry and left. plan an hour to wait in line for each ferry be sure to get the audio player.

Skip the line was a complete lie as we waited two hours in a “tuna can” type line with hundreds of people waiting to get on the boat. Our tour guide didn’t even make sure we got off the boat with them because he lost us the swarm of people!! Not once did we have a guide on this except to get us through security. You DO NOT get to skip the line and no tour guide. Save your money and pay general admission because it’s the same. !!

The description of the tour was unclear. The guide stated he was giving “private” tours but it was unclear who within our group was supposed to be in that select bunch. We signed up for the tour of both islands with skip-the-line access, which we thought was guided — the “private” tour. Our tour included walking from the meeting point to the ferry port where we did have to wait in line. There was no apparent skip the line access. Additionally, the guide smoked a joint just prior to departing for our tour in front of guests. Finally, the guide made inappropriate (for kids) comments on the tour. He gave “fun facts” about states, one of which was that 3 still allow incest, in the context of making fun of NJ. He also referred to non-native New Yorkers as “imports” which is inappropriate especially in the context of our Ellis Island tour. I wish I had just purchased ferry tickets (at a third of the cost) and skipped the “tour” portion.

Bought the tickets with these guys via Expedia advertised as tour. But it is not a tour only a guy take you to the ferry then you are on your own unless you buy another guide tkt for 20$. So who are these guys they are just sell thev18$ tkt to 60$ bcos you didn't book 1 month early on the real website.
