Our guide was amazing. It is a walking tour…we had older people in our group and one used a cane, but it worked out. You are stopping to view buildings and listen to the history so people can have a little break. The tour starts by New York stock exchange, heads to 9/11 memorial, and then you are dropped off to battery park to take ferry on your own to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. FYI for the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island ferry you have to go through metal detectors screening worse than the airport…someone in our group had to take off their eyeglasses bc it set off metal detector and I had to take off jewelry that has no problem passing the airport metal detectors. I have been to NYC plenty of times so this was a nice refresher of the history!

The tour guide, Ray was amazing and had a very upbeat personality that drew in our attention! He was very informative of the history of the many locations he took us to before he took us to get on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. 10/10! Best tour guide ever. If you actually want to go inside the Statue of Liberty, you’ll have to purchase that separately from this tour. You have plenty of time to go see everything on each island so take your time to take it all in. They have a ferry to pick you up every 15 minutes. I highly recommend this tour!

Our morning walking tour through the financial district, the 911 memorial, ending at the ferry to the Statue of Liberty was expertly led by our highly knowledgeable guide, Andrea. Easy two hours of walking. We had a wheelchair and the walk was obstacle free.

We had a problem with ticket but was fixed right away. Thank u. Everything worked out great.

Very nice overview of some of the financial history of downtown NYC!
