    • "Tell your guide if you have a walking disability, so they came make adjustments with the timing of the tour." See review

    Jim was a hilarious guide! But also very knowledgeable, having lived in NYC for many decades! I loved seeing the Statue of Liberty and exploring Ellis Island.
    Not worth the money or aggravation

    Took a taxi with my elderly mother, who walks with a cane, and my young daughter. We were dropped off at One Battery Park. We then had to figure out where Starbucks was to meet our Tour Guide. Though we showed up at the park 30 minutes prior, we missed the tour. We then added ourselves to another tour with a different company. Waste of money. We should have just booked the ferry and ticket ourselves and invested in a pedestal walk. Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are definitely something to see but save your money and walk check out the museums on the Islands yourself.
    Tour was alright. It was...

    Tour was alright. It was hard to hear because we were in a big group. We were required to wear a mask every time we were with the tour guide which kind of affecting our comfort and ability to enjoy

    Jeff was the best Tour Guide. Jeff was very knowledgeable and detailed during the tour. He was also made the tour funny which made it interested to listen and not boring. I definitely recommend this tour. I hope you get Jeff as your tour guide.
