Love it all! Paula was very informative and wonderful! Highly recommend her in the future! She even made certain to escort us to the taxi stand as well.

We lucked out on this trip - we were the only ones to have booked for the time slot, and the inclement weather cleared just in time to get to the boat! David Medeiros was our tour guide, and he was fantastic from start to finish. My parents were in town visiting from the UK and Liberty Island was high on their list. David was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny, and really took care of us. His insights made the trip all the more fascinating and added an extra dimension compared with just seeing the places.


Tour was excellent and hassle free. Tour guide very knowledgeable. I certainly would recommend using this tour group.

The Tour was very informative. The only thing that I found odd was the tour guide and group were no where in sight and I couldn't contact the tour guide to find where they went. I feel duped


Absolutely superb visit with a hugely informative and interesting Guide from the American Tour Guide Association. As a family this was our first visit to New York and the first time we have booked an excursion in the UK using Trip Advisor. It was a fantastic day! We were greeted at the Meeting point by our tour guide Paula, who throughout was hugely welcoming, informative, knowledgeable and humorous making this an iconic visit to two iconic landmarks one we will never forget! Thank you.


Our tour and tour guide was excellent. She kept us on time, ensured all families were able to see what they wanted to see or concentrate on. She had in depth knowledge on the area, and the monuments we visited.


So I booked this tour through viator, but could have also just gone directly to American Tour Guide Association or gotten tickets from national park site. Our guide was so relaxed and had everything ready for us. There were only 8 of us in our group so it was like getting a personal tour since 4 of the 8 were my family. Half of the group left us on Liberty Island so we did have our guide to ourselves on Ellis Island. David was very informative and helped us understand the whole immigration process. After our tour David even walked us to Stone Street that has a variety of restaurants! We had a very good experience!

Our tour guide was the absolute best. A native New Yorker, she was full of knowledge and excited about sharing it with our group.


We had an amazing time on this tour. It was a longer tour but our guide was amazing as she knew so much about the locations we went and their history. Highly recommend!


Statue of Liberty when you are there you realize the importance of protecting out land. She is beautiful.
