Outstanding Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Experience
Our Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour was so fun! It was one of the few activities left on my NYC bucket list after many visits to the city and our guide Chris Triebel did not disappoint! He was knowledgeable and super funny. He also asked us questions about ourselves in order to recommend other activities for us to do, which was helpful in adding to my NYC bucket list for my next visit. Would definitely recommend this tour… and ask for Chris T.!

Absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was Daniel M and he made the tour even more spectacular! Not only did he tell us the history behind the statue in detail, he was kind and funny. If you make this trip I’d highly recommend trying to get him as tour guide! Best guided tour I’ve been on!

While the guide was friendly and seemingly knowledgeable his 2 informative talks were way too long. Everyone was restless and ready to move on.

This was a fabulous tour. Daniel M was our tour guide and he was both informative and entertaining. His knowledge of the history of the statue and Ellis Island was extensive and his presentation was educational and fun. I especially loved that he took the time to make sure everyone got pictures in front of the statue.

We are SO glad we took the time to see the statue of Liberty, it's something we always thought we should do but wasn't sure if it was something we wanted to make the time for. To be standing next to this beautiful monument instantly left me feeling humble and proud. The history of her journey here was symbolic to the journey of so many immigrants who arrived to our great country.

Our tour guide, Daniel M, was excellent!!! He was very articulate, friendly, personable and gave us great advice for other tourist attractions.
