    Hannah was knowledgeable and a great guide. The ferry was fast but you got to see a great view of the city skyline. Ellis Island was my favorite part.

    Excellent tour made even better by our guide Joel who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would highly recommend.

    Our tour guide, Hannah, was animated, intelligent, knowledgeable and seemingly very passionate about the history of the statue and Ellis Island. The time passed very quickly and I would endorse your company very highly. I was with my four adult children and they were equally enthusiastic.

    We took a tour with Sean who was very friendly, knowledgeable, and pleasant. We took our group aside to explain history and background details, complete with a ipad showing us pictures to support his information. We definitely got more out of this tour than just going on our own.

    Liz was fantastic! The day was great and she was very informative. I would highly suggest her. Thanks.

    Our tour guide, Hannah, was very knowledgeable and expressed herself well making the tour very enjoyable. It's a very long tour so you probably don't want to plan anything else until the evening but the tour itself was excellent.

    Jordan was fun and informative and creative. It didn’t feel like a three hour tour and I feel like I can still take more. I would get on his tour pronto!!!

    Our guide, Liz, was amazing. We went on the tour with our 4 children and she was able to keep them captivated for 4 hours! She was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We definitely recommend this tour!

    This was a great tour. The group size was only 9 people and Sean was an excellent guide. I got lost on my way there and was afraid I was going to miss it. Sean called just before 9;30 to check if I was coming. Turned out I was only a couple of minutes away so I didnt miss it. I really appreciated him taking the time to do that.
    Sean was very knowledgable and handled questions from adults and kids with ease. I liked that the tour ended on Ellis Island leaving us on our own to explore as we wanted to. The park there offers and excellent free audio tour. There was just enough time with the Statue of Liberty.
    I highly recommend this tour!
