Know More about this tour

Meet in Lower Manhattans Financial District, where youll meet your expert local guide to begin your Viator Exclusive tour, available nowhere else. Your morning starts off with a walking tour of Wall Street. Learn about the transformation of New York City from an early Dutch settlement to the financial capital as you pass the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Reserve Bank and other financial and historical institutions.
Your Wall Street walking tour leads you to the World Trade Center site, home to the 9/11 Memorial, a monument commemorating the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks of 2001. Walk around to see the enormous reflecting pools and fountains. Your guide will tell you stories of the events, tragedy and heroism of that infamous day.
After this sobering and deeply moving experience, your guide will accompany you to the ferry. This Viator Exclusive gives you reserve line access for the ferry to Liberty Island, letting you bypass the long lines. Before sending you off, your guide will provide commentary about the Statue of Liberty, one of Americas greatest symbols of liberty and freedom.
Admire views of the amazing New York City skyline as you cruise along New York Harbor. Have your camera ready as you approach Lady Liberty! Arriving at Liberty Island, pick up a handheld audio guide (available in 9 different languages) for your visit. Next, go inside this famed icon with reserved access to the Statue of Libertys stone pedestal, designed by famed architect Richard Morris Hunt. The top of the pedestal is roughly half the height of the entire monument, and offers panoramic views of Ellis Island, New York, New Jersey and New York Harbor. Only a limited number of visitors are permitted per day, so be the fortunate one to experience the Statue of Liberty up-close.

Your ticket also includes access to the Liberty Island Museum, where youll learn about the difficulties and triumphs that France and the US overcame to build this universal symbol of liberty and democracy. The museum also covers how the Statue of Liberty's interpretation has changed since its construction in 1886.

Here, your tour concludes and you may choose to stay on the island as long as you wish. On the return ferry, choose to disembark onto Ellis Island, the gateway for 12 million immigrants. End your day with one last view of the beautiful Statue of Liberty before returning to Lower Manhattan by ferry.

  • This tour started as a walking tour and covered Wall St, the place where Washington was inaugurated and Trinity Church where Hamilton and his wife are buried. It continued on to the 911 Memorial. Our tour guides were very well versed and animated making for a very pleasant tour. After the Memorial we were shown to our boats to Liberty and Ellis Islands where we could spend as much time as we wanted. Very worthwhile tour for a good price.

  • We had Joel for this tour. He put his everything into his presentation and made us all feel excited about the history he was sharing with us. He was very welcoming and made us all feel part of the group tour.
    Joel was knowledgeable and enthusiastically shared his wealth of knowledge.
    Suggestion for company would be to invest in quietboxes to not put strain on the voices of the tour guides. Joel was excellent and his acting background helped his voice
    Thank you Joel

  • Kernan, our guide was spectacular. He gave us an informative guide of all the sites and was really thorough.

  • A great experience...a wonderful way to spend a morning. Gabby was awesome...very knowledgeable...made the tour interesting and fun.

  • Perfect tour for a short trip to NYC. 2 hour tour of Wall Street and the 911 memorial with just enough info to get bang for your buck. Was able to bypass others in line to the Statue of Liberty and go up to the pedestal observation area. *Hard time finding guide, look for person with small flag

  • We found this online, read the reviews and went for it. It was me and my 14 year old daughter on a getaway. First time to NYC. Eric was our tour guide and did a great job! Full of facts and stories the whole time. We toured Wall Street, lower Manhattan, World Trade Center area, and hit the ferry for the Statue of Liberty. Well organized, Eric did well to interact with the whole group that we were a part of.
