Her ability to answer any question we threw at her was incredible. The best thing besides the beauty of New York was her ability to make our group a little family.

    Overall, it was a wonderful tour package. We had 11am admission tickets for the 911 Memorial and Museum. The experience is very heavy, first hand accounts from survivors and honors for those who were lost. We used the audio tour option on our smart phones and made our way around, it took just over an hour. From there we walked to Battery Park and met Vivian, our tour guide for the State of Liberty/Ellis Island tour. My only gripe was we were no able to go into the Statue of Liberty, apparently it requires another ticket but we were not aware of that and it was too late to purchase a ticket when we were on the island. Vivian was wonderful, very informative and friendly. I would recommend this tour to others.

Although we have visited NYC regularly over the past 20 years, we never considered joining lines of tourists to visit Ellis Island, especially in August. Civid changed the access of many activities in the city, as no international touriste are crowing the sites. We tremendously appreciated no lines, no crowds, plenty of space on the ferry and in the museum. Even the cafeteria was accessible, and clean. This is the opportunity that will not last. Plan a long visit, we spent two hours on Ellis Island and we will return. The exhibits are rich in a large variety of mementoes. Powerful and moving.

it was good my family is from Puerto Rico and they were amazed when they see the Statue of liberty the ride was good i really recommend it especially if you are in a big group.

It was great! STAFF WAS SUPR NICE!! THE FOOD, THE GIFT STORE.... I really enjoyed it :) We had a lot of fun and beautiful pics!!

Very easy to locate group from the beginning. Easy to stay with a tour guide. Very relaxing. We paid for the full guided tour.
