Know More about this tour

“I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” These unforgettable words are inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. For millions of future Americans, her torch was the first thing they saw on their arrival to this new country. She stands proudly in New York Harbor, lighting the way to better life for so many people.

Meet your guide at Battery Park in midday. Start the tour by examining the collection housed inside the Pedestal Museum, from the original bones of the statue to one of the first flames of her torch. Then make the climb to the top of the pedestal and enjoy unparalleled views of the NYC skyline at her feet. Explore the island on your own, or grab a quick bite before rejoining your guide. If time permits, the tour will also visit Ellis Island.

Important:  The wait times at the ferry and security lines during the afternoon tour is much longer.

  • Great afternoon at the Statue of Liberty. Jared, our tour guide, was outstanding - extremely knowledgable, friendly and made sure all had a great time Thanks

  • This guided tour was well worth the money for our family of 4. Josh is an amazing, high energy guide that we fell in love with :
    I highly recommend it. Worth every penny, and if you get Josh... you are in for a major treat!

  • We went on this tour last week.-22 August. It had been recommended by friends and we thought it was excellent. It was a very hot and humid day but due to the ability of the guide Robert Yonskie it just flew past.

  • Our guide Robert was amazing he was really interesting and kept our interest all the time. So glad we went .would really recommend Robert.

  • This tour was amazing. Our tour guide Jared was funny and informative. We had a small group so it was very efficient. With us taking the late tour to The Lady Liberty we weren't guanteed Ellis Island. If you want to do both do the early tour.

  • This tour was the highlight of our NYC trip! Frank was a fabulous guide: lots of personality, anecdotes and knowledge. We would book this tour, with Frank, again!

  • Tour was great. Very interesting learned things I did not know even as a long time nyc resident. My young grandson also enjoyed all of the tour and Frank was a great guide. Very helpful and knowledgable plus always making each tour participant was comfortable and got through all of the annoying obstacles security as easily as possible.

  • Alice was an amazing tour guide and story teller! We brought an 8 year old and a 10 year old and she kept them engaged for the entire time. Totally recommend her and it was WAY better then going with the crowds!
