Description

Discover the majesty of the Statue of Liberty and the history of Ellis Island on this engaging walking tour. With convenient priority boarding on the ferry, enjoy quick access to the Statue of Liberty and take an informative stroll around these historic sites with your expert guide.

Meet your guide at Castle Clinton, a former fort built for the War of 1812, and board a ferry to the Statue of Liberty. As you cruise to Liberty Island, learn about Lady Liberty's history and inspiring meaning to millions of immigrants. Upon disembarking, stroll around the island and admire a remarkable view of the Big Apple's skyline.

Enter the Pedestal of the Statue and tour the museum to learn about the construction and architecture as well as remarkable stories of the people involved in erecting this symbol of freedom and welcome. After you leave the Pedestal, hop on the ferry to Ellis Island.

Listen to your guide share stories of the more than 12 million immigrants who traveled through Ellis Island, which was busiest between 1892 and 1924. Walk around the historic grounds, explore the Immigration Museum, and, after the guided tour ends, feel free to grab lunch or spend some more time on Ellis Island before heading back to the city on your own.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the venues we went to and knew where to stand on the ferry, when to get off and where the best location to see the sights. It was obvious he did a lot of research and knew a ton of stories of the past and the history or our Lady Liberty and Ellis Island.

5/5 Oct 11, 2019

Highly recommend the tour of Ellis Island & the Statue of Liberty. Kevin Lawrence was our guide and he was really informative and funny and gave us great tips. Definitely do a tour if you can.
