Follow in the footsteps of New York’s early immigrants and discover the beacon of liberty herself on this half-day tour of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Enjoy priority boarding onto the ferry from Lower Manhattan—no waiting in line. This tour also includes guaranteed Statue of Liberty Museum and observation deck admission, audio headsets to make your guide’s stories crystal clear, and entry to Ellis Island’s historical facilities.

What to Expect

In the morning, head to Battery Park in Lower Manhattan, where you board a ferry. Skip the line with priority boarding, then take in the cinematic views of New York Harbor en route to your first stop: Liberty Island.

Venture into the Statue of Liberty Museum, where audio headsets make it easy to hear your guide’s commentary. Ascend to the observation deck in the statue’s pedestal, from where you get 360-degree views and sweeping photos of New York’s skyline.

Board another ferry bound for neighboring Ellis Island, which housed New York’s primary immigrant processing facilities from 1892 to 1954. Learn about the millions of people from around the world who passed through this gateway to the United States, and tour its well-preserved facilities with your guide.

The tour ends when you board a ferry back to Battery Park, though you can choose to linger at Ellis Island’s Immigration Museum or see more of its sights before returning.
