Traveler Tips


  • "To make the most of it you really need to go first thing in the morning as the queues to get onto the boat were long other than that it all went very well." See review
  • "Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island." See review
  • "Note you cannot access the crown on this tour, but you get excellent views and photographs from the pedestal." See review

Matt was a great guide as he was a great story teller. We went over Christmas break so crowds were obnoxious. Also, this is a long day and by the time we got to Ellis island at the end of the tour, we didn't give the museum enough time. I would recommend breaking Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour to two different days if you want to give the museum it's due.

We absolutely loved this tour. The tour guy had a lot of knowledge not just about the actual tour but with other things or places people would ask him. He very kind, funny and patient. We would definitely book through this company again.

Wonderful tour w a great guide--Patrick. He was patient and very knowledgeable. Kept us on schedule. This was a tour much needed now, to remind us of our commonalities and how the US is a WELCOMING country. We are all immigrants, we are all 'huddled' masses. Getting the history of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is amazing. Lots to know and be proud of, yet reminds us of our humanity. I would do this tour again...
