Why You Should Go

No huddling in groups to hear the exciting stories on this Statue of Liberty tour! With your own personal headset, you have the freedom to wander around and take pictures while still being able to hear everything your guide is saying. 

On average, unguided visitors can expect to spend approximately 6 hours on a trip; with us however, you’ll do and see more in less time (4-4.5 hours). You’ll save time by not having to wait in the ticketing line, you’ll get reserve access and won’t need to worry about ferry schedules - we take care of all that.  Plus you’ll have the benefit of an NYC local who can offer suggestions and recommendations for other things to do in NYC after your tour.

Visit the Statue of Liberty

You'll meet your guide just outside Battery Park and take the short walk to the ferry dock. Skip the ticketing lines via the reserved ticket holders entrance and set off to begin your Liberty Island tour. You’ll make a short visit to the Statue of Liberty Museum - home of the original torch - and learn all about Lady Liberty. Climb to the pedestal level observation deck, 10 stories high above the island, and get amazing views of the New York City skyline and sweeping 360 degree views of New York Harbor. 

You'll stop for a once in a lifetime photo with Lady Liberty before boarding the ferry for the short ride to Ellis Island.

Ellis Island Tour

On this tour of Ellis Island, you’ll be able to take in all of the captivating sights the Island has to offer while listening to the history being explained by your guide through your headset. 

When you visit Ellis Island, you’ll walk in the footsteps of millions of desperate past immigrants searching for a new home in America. Enter the Great Hall before descending the Stairs of Separation to the Kissing Post, and relive the immigrant experience. Returning to Manhattan, you'll understand why the island earned the nickname 'Island of Hope, Island of Tears.’ The tour ends on Ellis Island, but you are welcome to stay on the island where you can research family members who may have arrived there, or visit the beautiful Ellis Island Immigration Museum.
