Full description
Take a stroll through history and learn the origin of the New York Stock Exchange. See how it became the largest exchange valued at over $20 trillion. You'll visit the locations of the New York Stock and NASDAQ Exchanges, although guests will not be able to enter inside both exchanges (due to security concerns, they are not open to the public). Wall Street has raised money that helped build dynasties and empires. From Rockefeller to Buffett, discover how Standard Oil became a behemoth and how Bershire Hathaway dominated an industry. 

Stand where George Washington took the Oath of Office to become the first American President. Learn how the "Wolf of Wall Street" pulled off one of the largest pump and dump schemes in history. See the company headquarters of the firms that created the largest financial crisis since the Great Depression. 

If you select the optional Statue of Liberty upgrade, you will receive your general admission ticket to visit Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Immigration Museum after your Wall Street Walking Tour. Your tour guide will escort you to the entrance for the Statue Cruises to visit Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There you will access the flex line to the security check before boarding the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. All ferries are wheelchair accessible.

Upon arrival of Liberty Island, you can obtain you free headset and begin your self-guided audio tour of the grounds. Learn how the Statue of Liberty was put together, the symbolism it brings to America, among other interesting facts and gaze at the amazing skyline of Manhattan Island.

Step back aboard the boat for the trip over to Ellis Island. Your standard admission ticket gives you access to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, filled with displays dedicated to the island where millions of arrivals to America landed between the years of 1892 and 1954.

When you have finished exploring Ellis Island, step back on the boat and cruise back to New York's Battery Park while admiring views of the Manhattan skyline. Concessions and souvenirs are available on board the boat.

Richard was very thorough and told us many interesting facts about Wall Street and the area. We had a great time walking and he gave us many rest breaks (we were pretty tired from days of sightseeing.). He also took our photos and recommended great places to eat. It was the best and easiest tour yet. So worth the money.

Must do this tour!

Richard F. was our guide. He was enthusiastic, informative and easy to understand. We actually learned a lot from his tour. Richard took plenty of tourist pictures for us too! He made sure we did not have any questions after his mini presentations and really tried to keep us out of the heat. We were under a time constraint and Richard made sure we fit it all in within in our allotted time. When you book this tour, ask for Richard, you will be glad you did! (he also provided us with an extensive restaurant recommendation list)
