What people are saying about Charging Bull

Just a tremendous tour of the 9/11 Memorial, Wall Street, The Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Our tour guide James was friendly and possessed a thorough knowledge of not only our tour sites but the history of NYC in general. Cannot recommend it enough. My only “gripe” is more with the ferry operators who herd people onto and off of the boat to Liberty and Ellis Islands. There has to be a method that’s more organized. Again, that’s beyond the control of the tour and to his credit, James had advised us to take our time joining the lines and relax. Appreciated the forewarning In all, excellent tour and tour guide

We had an excellent time. The only thing is that I only alloted 5:30 hours and really needed more because the lines for the ferries were long. It would have been helpful to do the Liberty and Ellis Island first when lines were shorter. Our guide was awesome.

Great history and background without too much. And the walking was definitely reasonable as we were with our 11 and 8 yo boys. Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island was at our own pace.

Our guide was friendly and well I formed, kept the group together and shared insights into the city, like where to eat or stop for clean bathroom breaks!

Tour guide was knowledgeable and relatively humorous.
