Overview
While it’s easy to feel like a number in a large tour group, this private walking tour ensures you and your party have the full attention of your guide. Listen to stories about landmarks that many visitors miss while sightseeing on their own. No need to waste time reserving and planning ahead: all tickets are purchased and pre-reserved for you.
Highlights
  • Private tour: guide tailors the experience to your needs and interests
  • Hear little-known facts and stories about New York’s rich history
  • Tickets included: Ferry to Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty Museum
  • Views of the Manhattan skyline from ferry ride to Liberty Island
  • Option to add on visit to One World Observatory
What to Expect
Meet your guide in downtown Manhattan at the National Archives at 1 Bowling Green. As you walk through historic Wall Street, learn about how New York became the city it is today. The private tour ensures you have your guide’s full attention and that you can ask questions at any time. From Battery Park, enjoy priority boarding for the Liberty Island ferry. After a short ride with sweeping views of the skyline, you'll arrive at Liberty Island. Follow the guide through the very path that immigrants arriving in New York took a hundred years ago. Once you return to Manhattan, begin a leisurely walking tour of famous downtown landmarks, including the Stock Exchange, Trinity Church, and Alexander Hamilton’s grave. As some locations are unmarked or hard to find, the guide ensures you don’t miss a thing. End the tour at the National 9/11 Memorial Museum, where the guide offers a local perspective on the events and aftermath. Hear the resilient story of the Survivor Tree. Upgrade to include a visit to the One World Observatory for panoramic views of the city. Observatory tickets sell out fast, but your pre-reserved ticket guarantees entry.
