Full description
Meet your guide at Battery Park and enjoy Fast Track priority boarding for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty on this 5-hour program. Designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, the iconic copper Statue was built by Gustave Eiffel. Dedicated on 28 October 1886, it was a gift to the United States from the people of France. Visit the all-new Pedestal Museum, to learn more about this famous monument.

Upgrade your visit to include access to the Pedestal located inside the Statue of Liberty. Half the height of the entire monument, the Statue of Liberty's stone pedestal was designed by famed architect Richard Morris Hunt. The pedestal offers a full panoramic view of New York Harbor.

Continue to Ellis Island, home to a federal immigration station that opened in 1892 and continued operations for more than 60 years before closing in 1954. Millions of immigrants passed through the station during that period. It is thought that at least 40% of all current United States citizens can trace one or more of their ancestors to Ellis Island.

After returning to Battery Park, you’ll visit the National September 11 Memorial, the principal monument commemorating the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 that killed 2,507 civilians, 72 law enforcement officers, 343 firefighters, and 55 military personnel. The memorial is located at the former site of the Twin Towers, which collapsed on the day of the attacks.

Bonnie our guide was absolutely brilliant!

Bonnie is such a wonderful lady - felt very lucky to have had her as our guide. Full of life and interesting facts and is such a great characters with brilliant energy. Did her best to get us to the front of queues and ended up doing a 7 hr tour due to the fact it was SO busy due to memorial weekend. So glad to have had Bonnie - best guide I have ever had.
