Traveller 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.
Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island.
Tell your guide if you have a walking disability, so they came make adjustments with the timing of the tour.

Good, not Great
Lindsay_A, Sept 2023
The tour was fine, our guide was kind, funny, and very theatrical, but I'm used to getting a lot more information from guided tours. This definitely wasn't one where the tour guide is walking backwards to give the group all sorts of history and anecdotes.
Excellent tour - guide...

Our tour guide, Daniel Hunt, was outstanding. His insightful description of the Statue of Liberty and the conditions and processes experienced by immigrants at Ellis Island were superlative.
Local Knowledge
Amber_B, Sept 2023
A highly engaging tour led by a local New Yorker with a passion for the city, which shone through in every aspect of the tour. We loved it!
Best tour guide Daniel
Amir_A, Sept 2023

Great choice
Renee_H, Sept 2023
Great information. Very nice tour guides! All transportation included and easy to get from one spot to the next.
Tour of the century- worth every cents
Tanya_W, Sept 2023
The tour guide was a viable resource of information- He exceeded my expectations- gave clear concise information about the tour and history- He was exhilarating and infectious to be around- resourceful about New York history, historical information and just in the know about everything I asked. Being a former New Yorker I learned more about my homeland in his recitation of history of New York than I have learned from my entire time I lived there
Great experience, would recommend to anyone who is visiting for the first time
Citlali_S, Sept 2023

Chigozie_M, Sept 2023
My family and I had a great time, the tour guide was super amazing and we learnt alot about the Statue of Liberty 🗽 and Ellis Island. We will definitely love to do this again when ever we are in New York.
Great Tour
Kerri_J, Sept 2023
Very nice tour! I wish we could have stayed @ Statue of Liberty about 45 minutes longer to have time to view the museum.
Fantastic tour guide!
Jennifer_J, Sept 2023
Daniel was terrific and really made the tour fun and memorable! He gave us an entire history lesson of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, which was very helpful! We learned so much on this tour and highly recommend it!
