Description

Find out everything you've always wanted to know about this iconic American location. Opt for a self-guided visit with a brief 30-minute tour around Battery Park before the ferry to Ellis Island, or go for the fully guided tour and have an enthusiastic host with you for the whole experience.

Once you've crossed the river on the ferry, you'll be close enough to touch the Statue of Liberty – which wasn't always green, you know. Fun fact: the process of weathering had turned her copper covering from brown to green by 1920!

At the pedestal, take a peek inside the museum, and witness spectacular views of New York City's sparkling skyline.

At the Immigration Museum on Ellis Island, you'll see where families and individuals still head to celebrate and honor the members of their family who made the arduous journey to the US of A. Not an easy thing to do, both now and then.

If this is your first trip, this tour makes the perfect welcome to NYC and America.

Excellent experience

Prepare for crowds. Tour guides are randomly selected so they also tend to shape the experience. Ours was good but a little too talkative about irrelevant details, plus we were constantly reminded about tipping at every stop.

Our guide was very pleasant, informative, and friendly, but he did not manage time that well. We had families, seniors, and disabled individuals in our group, and he did not take into account that people have to eat during a five-hour tour and use the restroom.
