Small-Group Tour of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
US$57,00
Overview

See two major New York City attractions on this half-day tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Skip the line at Liberty Island Ferry, and travel with your small group to Lady Liberty for a pedestal tour and observation deck visit. Your guide explains immigration history, and your visit to Ellis Island includes Great Hall entrance and free time before the return ferry.

What to Expect

Make your way to Battery Park to meet your guide and group at least 15 minutes before your departure. Together, skip the lines for priority access to Liberty Island Ferry.

The ferry whisks you to Liberty Island where, with your guide leading the way, you’ll tour the Statue of Liberty Museum and hear commentary on the statue’s rich history to go along with the displays. Head to the observation deck for views and photos before hopping back on the ferry, bound for Ellis Island.

Land on Ellis Island and listen as your guide paints a verbal picture of what it must have been like for immigrants landing there throughout the years. Visit the Great Hall to see family photos, hear personal stories, and trace your own family history.

Finish up around midday. You are free to explore further and return to Manhattan via ferry when you wish.

Excellent tour and guide

We throughly enjoyed our tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with Hannah, who was very knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. While the exhibits have lots of information on display, Hannah brought the people and events to life in a much more memorable way....More

Well worth going on this tour.

We enjoyed being in a small group with our tour guide Jordan. He was good fun, knew his stuff and took his time with everyone. He also interacted well with each person on the tour, from a young child to our teenage boys as well...More

Yes plenty of time but not to the crown. You can climb the 200 plus steps or take an elevator and still climb about 50 (?) steps to the bottom of the Statue of Liberty. It’s a really good tour!
