Private Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour
USD 160.00
Overview

Make the most of a trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with this private, half-day tour. There’s no getting lost in a big group on this tour, as a guide tailors the experience to your sole preferences and interests. You get the complete experience as entrance to the Statue of Liberty pedestal, Ellis Island museum, and ferry rides are all included in this tour.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at Castle Clinton in Battery Park for your private half-day tour. From there, head to the pier and enjoy priority boarding for the Statue of Liberty ferry. As you sail across the harbor, your guide points out the important landmarks in the city skyline.

Once on Liberty Island your guide leads you around and into the Statue of Liberty pedestal. This private tour ensures an intimate experience—questions and conversation are welcome throughout. Climb the pedestal and linger for the birds-eye view of the island.

Next, continue to Ellis Island via ferry. Learn about the history of immigration to New York as the guide walks you through the Great Hall, just as an immigrant would have a hundred years ago. The tour ends here, allowing you to explore the museum at your own pace before catching a leisurely ferry ride back to Manhattan.

Worth the price!

We decided to splurge on a private tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island only because a member of our party had some mobility issues. We wanted to be flexible and able to pace ourselves during the four-hour tour (make frequent stops, sit...More
