I didn’t expect to be so moved by the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island, but the guide and the sights were really captivating. The large pics of the immigrants in the exhibits on Ellis Island were very intense and riveting. In those photos, Their history and hope were so evident on their faces. Such an amazing place.

Our guide, Luke, was amazing! So knowledgeable, personable and engaging. Luke had a wealth of information that he shared with us. Additionally, he was able to answer questions we had regarding what we were seeing and kept us entertained. We couldn't have asked for a better person to guide our tour.
