Check two New York landmarks off your bucket list on this exciting guided tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Start the tour by getting early Reserve Line Access boarding on the ferry to Liberty Island. Once there, go inside the pedestal of the statue (if upgrade selected) and head to the observation decks for an awesome view of New York City and its surroundings. Then hop back on the ferry to Ellis Island to learn about the intriguing history of immigration to America that took place here between 1892 and 1954.
Empire State Building General & Skip-the-Line Tickets
Empire State Building - a must do
, Feb 2020
Love NYC off season! No lines, great views, VERY friendly staff, well ordered in and out - a must do in the NYC area. Went with our triplet gals - just turning 16 - so much to see - loved the museum sections and animated "through the viewers" scenes.
Excellent guide. Explained all the history of the Statue of Liberty including its construction and took photos of us individually with the Statue in the background.
Also informed us which side of the boat was best for taking photos
Very knowledgeable about the immigration process on Ellis Island & in common with myself had an ancestor who immigrated through there
Marvel at the 360-degree, unobstructed views from the Empire State Building and explore its Interactive Museum and more with this combo ticket. See NYC's landmarks from the 86th-floor observatory, enjoy the exhibitions and augmented reality viewfinders on the 80th floor; and explore the 2nd-floor museum’s immersive displays on the building's history. Upgrade for skip-the-line access, and once on site, choose to upgrade to add a visit to the 102nd-floor observatory.
Catch a bird's eye view of the Big Apple during this helicopter ride over Manhattan. Look out over the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the financial district and more. You’ll also spot top sights like Ellis Island and the Empire State Building during this unique sightseeing flight over one of the world's most iconic cities.
The prestations are much better than the rude welcome by the person in charge of security.
This person wanted us waiting outside in freezing temperatures during the flight of our grandkids , arguing that the waiting room was small
Our experience was great but I would have liked to have some kind of information (email, text or something) regarding longer than expected wait time. Since you guys didn’t fly Thanksgiving Day due to uncomfortable wind speed, that rolled over all customers from Thursday’s flights to Friday’s flights.
Get a bird's-eye view of New York City on a brief helicopter tour that soars over the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center, and Central Park. While helicopter tours can become expensive quickly, this flight is just long enough to see all the top sights without spending extra time in the air, making it ideal for budget-minded visitors who want to get a comprehensive view of the city.
I bought a two day pass that included a night tour and liberty cruise and went on every tour available on the pass. Great way to explore the city! Tour guides were very informative. The only negative is the hop on stops are not well marked. And, don't lose the paper ticket they give you when you first board!
The bus is a great way to put some perspective to New York which is so huge. The architecure is incredible both in historical areas and the newer parts. Chris was a super guide, both knowledgeable and witty.
See the highlights of New York City without the hassle of navigating traffic or public transportation by booking a Big Bus tour. The hop-on hop-off tour enables busy travelers to relax and enjoy the sights from the double-decker bus. Along the way, you can choose the attractions that interest you most rather than being caught up on a group tour. Plus, an onboard guide points out sights you might otherwise miss.
Go behind-the-scenes at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, and see parts of the church that are otherwise off-limits to visitors, during this catacombs tour. Meet your guide at a convenient location in Lower Manhattan, and follow them into the church. As you explore, learn all about the landmark’s place in New York history and discover the final resting place of famous New Yorkers past.
The boat was OK and the area covered was OK. However we paid for the VIP experience which gave us "superior" seats. They were the same as all others except padded, and basically we were told not to move from those seats. The dedicated wait staff means that instead of walking to the cafeteria on the deck below, someone eventually brings you items and you then have the privilege of paying an extra 18% more than anyone else on the boat. The temperature controlled room included an open door right behind our seats, so we froze the entire journey.,
To top it off - our VIP tickets included lunch - to a restaurant that was closed!
Final complaint - the tour guide didn't shut up. Just rambled the entire time so much that anything of interest he may have had to say got lost in the rest of the dribble.
This was a great way to see Manhattan from the water, especially for us first-timers to NYC. Enjoyed our tour very much and the tour guide was very informative and funny. He even handled a group of excitable and unruly elementary school kids in a polite, but firm manner and this was much appreciated by the guests (he was applauded!). The only downside to this tour was that it was completely disorganized when trying to figure out what line to stand in to board - and we had the Premier seating so you would think the lines would be properly marked. Because of all the confusion, we had to ask several times to make sure we were standing in the right line, but were told different things by different employees so we kept having to switch lines. Because of that, we ended up at the end of the correct line, even though we got there way before the crowd! So for all of that, I didn't want to give the full 5 stars, although our tour guide deserved the full 5!
Some of the best views of New York City's iconic skyline are from the water. This extended cruise goes all the way around Manhattan Island, affording views of the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, and more. While on-board, learn about the history of the island through live commentary or purchase drinks and snacks.
It is a very pity that you have to get a ticket besides your pass. That is why you always are in two lines before you can go in. We were very early by the boat to Ellis island and in two line we were in line for more then 1,5 hour. Als by the 9/11 museum two lines and more then one houre before you can get in!!
Empire state building they could scan the NYC pass directly. Much better!! All the attraction were great to visit. Super!!
City Pass has perfect amount of activities for the value. Kids are also considered "kids" until 18, which further reduces the cost for teenagers. To redeem and get the physical booklet, you must go through the ticket line at the activity. Depending on which activity, you may wait in line for awhile. Easy to redeem tickets at other locations.
Get the New York CityPASS and enjoy great discounts and skip-the-line access at some of the Big Apple’s top attractions. Your CityPASS includes tickets valid for nine days from date of first use for NYC favorites like the Empire State Building, American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Statue of Liberty, Guggenheim Museum, 9/11 Memorial and Museum and much more. Best of all, you get to bypass the long lines, giving you more time to spend exploring this city that never sleeps.
We visited Top of the Rock at 10am on our last day in New York. It was the highlight of our trip. It was not very busy so we had a very relaxed experience. It was sunny so it wasn’t too cold -even for January. The visibility was excellent so the views of Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan were unforgettable!
Get the best view in all of New York City from the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Plaza. Soak up three floors of indoor and outdoor viewing areas and admire the Big Apple’s popular landmarks, such as One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and more.
Surprised my bff with this as a bday gift. It was an absolute blast! Lou was amazing and made sure everyone was having a great time. A great way to explore the city and an absolute must for sex and the city fans!
If you’re a fan of the show, It’s a MUST GO! The vibe of the tour is just amazing! Our tour guide Allie was phenomenal. Her energy and excitement made the difference! This is a second to none company and I would definitely recommend it!
Sex and the City is one of New York City's most iconic TV shows and this tour lets you follow in the footsteps of your favorite characters. Visit memorable locations from the TV show and movies; stop by the bars where Charlotte, Carrie, Miranda, and Samantha sipped on cosmos and gossiped about guys; see where they bought cupcakes and sex toys; and visit shops seen on-screen.
What an amazing tour!!! The guide Marcos was such a delight, full of information and engaging the whole day. The memorials were very moving and a blessing to be able to visit such historical places.
Highly recommend this tour. Thankyou Marcos for a great day.
Discover the highlights of the nation’s capital on a hassle-free guided tour from New York City. While visiting Washington DC from NYC can be a long day trip to make on your own, by booking this tour you can relax on a comfortable coach and learn historical details from your guide throughout the journey. This enables you to maximize your time and arrive well rested rather than tired from driving.
Loved the carolers and Santa Claus at the top.
Very festive and a nice surprise!
My cocktail was WAY too expensive at $20.50. I ordered a Crown and Coke, but they only had Pepsi. Yes, there IS a taste difference.

We were lucky to have a small group...Rick was a great guide, giving us lots of information on the neighborhoods we passed. The food at each stop was tasty and filling, with opportunities to purchase beverages (or extra treats at the bakery!). We had a lovely day to walk across the bridge back into Manhattan. We’ll definitely visit Brooklyn again!
Take a bite out of New York City’s hippest borough on this half-day Brooklyn food and culture tour.

Statue of Liberty Monument, 9/11 Memorial and Wall Street Tour
Lovely tour despite rainy weather
, Jan 2020
Our guide Helena was very informative and knew her NYC history, from New Amsterdam to present. The financial district, 911 memorial and Statue of Liberty were a must for us on our trip to NYC. Glad we took this tour. Great walk even in the rain.We liked that we were taken to Battery Park for the ferry, but then were able to spend as much time as we wanted at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
Sara was a great tour guide! She was pleasant and upbeat. We started at Wall Street, then headed to 9-11 memorial. Along the way Sara told us several stories/history facts about NYC. The tour with Sara lasted about 2 hours, we ended at Battery Park where she helped us get on the boat to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. These are self guided tours, Sara doesn't go along on the last part of the tour. Be very easy to maneuver on your own. Sara kept us entertained...would definitely recommend.
Discover three of New York City's most memorable sites on this Viator Exclusive tour, available nowhere else. Hear the history of Wall Street on a guided walking tour, then visit the 9/11 Memorial to learn about one of the most significant events in NYC history. Finally, ride the ferry to Liberty Island and enjoy an audio tour of the Statue of Liberty and its museum.
On our first bus was a guide who was loud and rudely expecting a tip. The bus looked as if it had been put together with Meccano and the bus stops were difficult to find. Our second bus had no guide but just an informative and helpful driver.
I am a travel agent for AAA. I have taken this tour twice this year. I HIGHLY recommend the Brooklyn loop of the tour because of the tour guide. His name is Tom Coca. He is FABOLOUS. He is very knowledgeable about the different boroughs and gives great tips for the city. He recommended to eat pizza in the neighborhood of DUMBO and try out Grimaldi's. It did not disappoint. The best pizza I have ever ate. He is much more friendlier and knowledgeable than the other tour guides on the different loops. I will recommend this to ALL of my clients. You have a fan for life, Tom! Thank you!
We did 2 different loops of these tours. First one we couldn’t understand the thick accent of the the guide. English is our first language but the guide was lovely but was a foreigner, which is great in most situations but not in this one where we have paid to listen to him speak but....it was money down the drain. The second loop the we could understand the guide and he was very informative but as we are from Australia and unsure of how to get back to our hotel we asked the guide for instructions on how to get back to the Subway. His instructions were very vague so my 16 year old asked for clarification and the guide barked at him “I already told you”. Never again.!!
A hop-on hop-off New York bus tour allows you to see the city at your own pace and provides easy transportation to top sights. Entertaining tour guides keep you informed when you’re on board, and you can hop off and on the distinctive double-decker tour buses when you wish to check out attractions like the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center. There are several options and combos to choose from with access to the Uptown Loop, Downtown Loop, Brooklyn Loop and Night Tour, or upgrade to add attractions to your tour!
The whole journey was hassle free. A tiring and long day but worth it. The down period in winter also ensured that you have the space to take in the view and have some nice photos taken without having to jostle with others. The journey behind the fall was awesome and worth what I paid for. Would have been better if it is 3/4 of a day instead of full day as some of the stops up river and down river can be shortened.
Straddling the border between Canada and the US, Niagara Falls is a thundering testament to nature’s power, with drops up to 167 feet (51 meters) high. While it can take several hours to travel by road to the falls from New York City, this tour reduces travel time with round-trip airfare and a local transfer from your Manhattan hotel, allowing you to easily see multiple Niagara highlights in a single day.

, Feb 2020

He was very informative about both Lady Liberty and Ellis Island and then giving us time to explore it on your own.
I would definitely book again.

This was an experience of a life time from the moment we boarded the boat to the end of the cruise. As a V.I.P. Guest we were seated by the huge glass window with a Clear full view Of all the sights all cozie and warm which was brilliant as it was below freezing outside.The service, the food, the sights and most of all the time we spent around the Statue of Liberty was amazing. I would Highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to New York.

2-Day Niagara Falls and Tannersville Tour from New York by Bus
From $350.00 (Price varies by group size )
, Jan 2020
The service was excellent. Both the tour guy (Andriy) and the bus driver (Herbert) were very nice and explained everything in detail. It was a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Totally recommend!
Took this organized trip in early January 2020. Booking was easy and efficient, we left NYC at 7am from a fairly easy spot to find in the city. Bus ride was made much easier with appropriately placed breaks and pull overs, the driver Harold was a kind, patient man and an excellent, safe driver. Got to the american side of the falls with enough time to enjoy the bridge view and walk around the park before heading back to the bud to cross the border to Canada, we were able to stop at the duty free as well. We arrived at the hotel (Ramada, exceeded expectations) at a very reasonable hour, around 6:30pm, and were given a free night to roam about and walk to the falls at night. Wake up call the next day was around 7am, left after breakfast to see the falls in day light and take the Journey Behind the Falls tour, as the boat ride is unavailable during winter months. From there, with sufficient timing we left to head back to New York with ample stops for food etc. (bus was also equipped with a restroom), got 1.5 hours at the Tannersville PA outlet for shopping and headed straight back to NYC from there, got back around 7:30pm. All in all this trip is very well thought out, not at all overwhelming or exhausting. Our tour guide,Bruno, also elevated the experience with interesting anecdotes along the way, he was very patient with the large group we were and accommodated whatever individual needs he could. I highly recommend this quick and satisfying trip!
Niagara Falls is one of the world's most famous natural wonders and this overnight tour lets you experience the falls from both the American and Canadian sides. Admire spectacular views of American Falls and Horseshoe Falls, get up close to the falls on a Maid of the Mist boat cruise, and see the falls lit up at night. On the way back, stop in Tannersville to visit one of the largest outlet malls in the US.
What a fantastic way to spend Sunday morning. It was a big tour 57 on our bus, it was also bilingual English and Italian. Our guide Anthony, was great managing both effortlessly. His knowledge and stories about New York were great, showing us different parts of Harlem before heading to the church. The "hour of power"was lovely, great singing, all of the soloist were outstanding and we were welcomed with open arms and hearts. Very enjoyable!
Harlem is one of New York City’s most culturally rich neighborhoods. Don’t miss out on its beauty just because you don’t know where to go on your own. This Harlem Sunday morning gospel tour, complete with a gospel choir service, takes care of the details for you. See the Apollo Theater and Cotton Club, and explore parts of this neighborhood. Upgrade to include a soul food brunch at a local restaurant.
