Description

Get a 360-degree experience of not one but two of America's most iconic sites on an Early Access Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island tour. Enjoy special access to the Pedestal and enjoy stunning views over New York Harbor. Take a fully guided tour of Ellis Island to learn the history of European immigration to America

Meet your local guide in Battery Park. Located at the southernmost tip of the island, this park is often overlooked by visitors headed to the ferries. Spend some time exploring this area's lesser-known monuments and attractions, like the Castle Clinton National Monument, the Pier A Harbor House, the American Merchant Mariner's Memorial, the Sphere, and the New York Korean War Veteran's Memorial.

Step aboard one of the day's first ferries with priority boarding to beat the crowds across the water to Liberty Island. Walk around the base of the statue and learn about the symbolism of Lady Liberty's tablet, the 7 rays of her helmet, and the broken chain at her feet. As you gain special access to the pedestal of the statue, hear the history behind the efforts that went into actually erecting the Lady Liberty in her current location.

Head back to the ferry and take a short ride to Ellis Island. More than 12 million immigrants passed through this space during its time as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station, from 1892 to 1954. Step into the red brick building and hear how the Stairs of Separation earned their name. Your guide leads you through the museum's interactive exhibits before parting ways, leaving you to explore some more and ferry back to Manhattan at your leisure.

T was a great tour guide who kept it interesting and at a fast pace. This was especially helpful as it was really hot out. It was also easy to find once we got there at the beginning. The tour is easily 4 hrs and could be more depending how much time you want to spend at Ellis Island. Would definitely recommend going early as it did get increasingly crowded as day went on.

Danyiel was a great tour guide and taught us a lot of things about the Statue of Liberty that we did not know. And, we easily made it through all the lines.
