Our guide Matthew was extremely enthusiastic and helpful, he showed us all the important things we wanted to see and gave us time to explore on our own. He gave us tips on how to negotiate the underground for our trip around the city once we had completed our guided tour.


Our guide Matt was sensational! He knew so much history, answered all our questions and was very animated and fun. Made our visit so enjoyable and worthwhile!!


Tour guide was knowledgeable and personable in telling the immigrant story as the story of America. His sharing his own family's history through the island was enriching.


We had a great time on our tour! Rob was very informative and we learned so much about Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty.


Our tour guide, Rob, was fabulous! He was knowledgeable and theatrical and absolutely engaging! We learned SO much and we were thoroughly entertained! Highly recommend!


Three of us took this tour with Colin, a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide. We had as little or as much time as we wanted to also explore independently. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good introduction to these iconic landmarks.


Robert is unbelievably knowledgable and enthusiastic with EVERYTHING he does! Going through NYC with him on one of his tours truly gives you a completely different perspective of the City. We did: Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the private 9/11 tour, one word - WOW. Infusing his own personal experiences, stories & knowledge within the tour truly makes it one of a kind and more importantly, world class. Robert went to incredible lengths to make sure we were comfortable, hydrated and even went out of his way to take some amazing photos for us! Would highly recommend Robert to anyone visiting NYC, whether its your first time or 10th time to New York 10/10


Visited with my granddaughter and it was great to have Robert as our tour guide. Enjoyed our time together and all the knowledge Robert has. Thank


Robert is awesome, really informative and a great personal story that added much to the tour. Really enjoyed it and would highly recommend!


My wife and I along with our 17 year old did a combined tour of Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island and 9/11 with Robert Yonskie. The tours on their own were great but having Robert as a tour guide was a home run. His knowledge, friendliness and sense of humor made this day a truly memorable experience. The day was perfect. Highly recommend!!
