    The weather was the worst but our guide Alexis was all ours as no one else showed. She was professional, knowledgeable and working in horrible conditions. We were soaked through but Lady Liberty did not disappoint 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    We had such a great experience with . They had an awesome time management and we got introduced with necessary historic of the place before to visit. We came with different point of view of the statue of liberty, but we got out of there with a real perspective of the history. Thanks a lot to the wonderful lady who gave us a magnific tour.

    There were none. Date was changed. Then time was changed. We had 9 great days in NYC. Plays, restaurants, opera, Rockettes. Circle Line River Cruise. This was ridiculous and irresponsible. I will be requesting a complete reimbursement of charges when I return home. What a joke. No one seemed to know what was going on or had any concern for fulfilling our trip

    We booked a small group tour and hit the jackpot! We were the only people on the tour!! Julian was a fabulous guide! Informative, friendly, helpful and entertaining. When we visited the Statue of Liberty museum, we actually didn’t need to read any of the signs, Julian had already told us everything. It was a wonderful way to spend a day in New York City.

    After having to plan all the other aspects of our family trip to NYC it was soooo nice to hand the reins of the day over to our tour guide. Easy to follow instructions on where to meet our guide - we arrived earlier than planned and she was easy to locate and friendly. Offered good background info but didn’t overwhelm with facts and figures which we appreciated. Was nice to not have to navigate the tours on our own and had the best spots to stand for the ferry.
