What to expect

Join an all-inclusive visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, New York City landmarks and symbols of freedom. This tour includes exclusive ferry tickets that will allow you to avoid long waiting lines and big crowds. Expert guides will not only entertain, but also work to make your trip memorable and stress-free!

After a short ferry ride to Liberty Island, tour the grounds with your guide and learn more about the history and construction of this iconic site. Your guide will share a preview of what you'll see inside the museum. You will have time on your own to examine the collection housed inside the new museum, from the original bones of the statue to one of the first flames of her torch.

After a brief break, hop back on the ferry and head over to Ellis Island, where millions of immigrants passed through between 1892 and 1954. Your guide will point out significant monuments on the grounds of Ellis Island, including The Wall of Honor. You will also get a preview of the Museum of Immigration, so you can better plan to visit the exhibits important to you.

For the rest of your time on Ellis Island, you'll have free time to visit the Museum of Immigration, housed in the original Immigration Station and recently restored in 2012 after decades of neglect. Receive a complimentary audio guide to hear the touching and often heartbreaking stories of the immigrants who once walked these halls. Explore the museum collection, search the immigrant archive and even discover your own personal history!
