We ask guests to plan to arrive at the meeting point at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure, earlier if possible. We recommend this just in case there are any travel difficulties like traffic or train delays.
It is especially important to arrive early for the Statue of Liberty tour since this visit requires guests to ride the ferry and we are at the mercy of the ferry schedule so tours must begin on time. A delayed start of as little as 5 or 10 minutes could set the tour back by 30 minutes or more if a ferry is missed. That’s why this tour meets near Starbucks so you can arrive early and enjoy breakfast, coffee, tea, etc.
