Your Itinerary

Statue of Liberty

Get up close and personal with Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty on this 4-hour tour with your own guide. Enjoy priority boarding for the ferry to Lady Liberty, an iconic copper statue designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. Dedicated on 28 October 1886, this statue was a gift to the United States from the people of France, and stands to this day for America's principles of freedom and welcoming. 

Ellis Island

Continue to Ellis Island, home to a federal immigration station that opened in 1892 and continued operations for more than 60 years before closing in 1954. Millions of immigrants passed through the station during that period. It is thought that at least 40 per cent of all current United States citizens can trace one or more of their ancestors to Ellis Island. Enjoy a guided tour of this island from your knowledgeable guide. When the tour concludes, you can choose to stay at Ellis Island to search for records of your family members, or return to Battery Park on a ferry that leaves every 15 minutes. You can upgrade to the pedestal by choosing the second option.

Owen Thompson was our tour guide, his knowledge and enthusiasm were infectious. We totally enjoyed learning about such a significant part of our history. Thank you Owen. It was a pleasure meeting you today and thank you for making our rainy day fun

We had a great time and our guide was very informative and passionate about the topic. The reason for giving 4 stars is that we were expecting to get to the pedestal, as it was advertised and printed on the tickets, but, apparently, that was not accurate information.

I have asked for my money back and the company has denied me. This is hands down the worst company to do business with. The tour was completely unorganized, and I believe my 10-year-old daughter could have coordinated a better tour. I am blown away that they are refusing my refund after I explained the tour didn’t even take place once we boarded the ferry we lost half of our group and once we finally got to the statue of liberty even the guide herself was so angry at her boss she was handing out his number for the group to call and complain!!!!!!! I want my money back and can’t get anyone on trip advisor to help me

The tour guide we had made a few political statements that should be left out of tours. She needs to understand this is not a platform for her views and that she is guiding people from all over the world with many different perspectives.

pas de guide français et même le guide anglais ne sert qu à nous accompagner jusqu'au ferry et ensuite se volatilise rien à voir avec une visite guidée payée pour rien nous ne recommandons pas avec viator
