What to expect

Meet NYC’s most famous lady up close on this Statue of Liberty Tour.

Start the tour with a little context, visiting the sites around Battery Park. You'll learn about Castle Clinton National Monument, Pier A Harbor House, the American Merchant Mariner’s Memorial, the Sphere and New York Korean War Veteran’s Memorial.

Then it’s off to Liberty Island, with priority boarding to get you the best seats on the ferry. Once there, you’ll enjoy stunning views back over the city and a guided tour that takes you right into the Pedestal. Afterward, you'll get back on the ferry and move to Ellis Island, where you’ll follow the footsteps of 12 million immigrants: The Island of Hope and The Island of Tears. Explore the museum’s impressive collection of interactive displays, asking all the questions you want to your expert guide. Your tour ends in Ellis Island, so you can stay a little longer or head back on the ferry.
