Meet for this early-access Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour at Pier A Harbor House. Spend some time visiting the nearby memorials with your guide. Then be one of the first passengers to board your ferry for the ride over to Liberty Island.
At the Statue of Liberty, take a guided tour that leads you up to the pedestal for stunning views. Your guide tells you stories along the way as you get to see the statue closer than with any other standard visit.
