Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Early Access Tour

Learn the history of one of New York’s most iconic monuments on an half-day early access tour of the Statue of Liberty.

Meet your guide for a little context of the sites around Battery Park. See memorials that many tourists miss, and hear stories about Castle Clinton National Monument, Pier A Harbor House, the American Merchant Mariner’s Memorial, the Sphere, and New York Korean War Veteran’s Memorial.

Then, take the ferry to Liberty Island, enjoying priority boarding to get the best seats. Arrive at the Statue of Liberty before the crowds for stunning views back over the city. Follow your guide up to the pedestal, getting closer to “Lady Liberty” than on a regular visit.

Learn how she was gifted to the US by France, and designed by their finest architects, including Gustav Eiffel. Hear how she wasn’t as warmly received as you might think, and about the struggle that got her on her feet and made her special to the people of New York.

Climb back on the ferry to cross to Ellis Island. Follow in the footsteps of 12 million immigrants, and learn about the process they went through to settle in America. Walk the Stairs of Separation to understand the island’s 2 very different names: “The Island of Hope” and “The Island of Tears.” Explore the museum’s impressive collection of interactive displays.

Feel free to stay on Ellis Island a little longer to explore at leisure, or head back to the mainland with your guide by ferry.

Fantastisk tur til Frihetsgudinnen og Ellis Island
Forholdsvis lett å finne fram til oppmøtestedet for turen. Guiden på turen, Alvaro, var helt fantastisk! Følte at vi virkelig ble tatt vare på samtidig som han var engasjerende og morsom å høre på. Lurt å ta en tidlig tur til disse attraksjone fordi det er raskere å komme gjennom sikkerhetskontrollene bl.a.

Worst tour ever. Do not waste your money.
The tour guide was an out of work Broadway actor who provided no relevant information during the tour. We spent the majority of our time trying to listen to the guide from the tour next to us - that is until we left early.

An Amazing & Informative Trip!!!
Our tour guide for this amazing step back in time was called Mark and he was absolutely excellent and built up a great rapport with all of us from the "get go" and his knowledge of the plight and experience of the people who passed through Ellis Island was very moving and genuine. Being Irish, Ellis Island meant a lot to us because of the amount of people who emigrated to America from our shores and also the fact that a young Irish girl called Annie Moore was the first to go through the island. My daughter, Suzi and I really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New York!!! Definitely a 5* Tour, many thanks. Bernie & Suzi, Ireland

Merece la pena
El tour es mucho más interesante que si lo haces por libre , por todo lo que aprendes. En nuestro caso el guía Jacob era estupendo y nos descubrió muchas cosas desconocidas. Aparte de la comodidad de no hacer las interminables colas. Completamente recomendabe

Definitely worth booking a tour guide & getting all that awesome info
Our guide was Mark and he was great! I would never have spent the time reading all that info at the museums. It was so awesome to get to just listen and learn from mark.

Toller Ausflug
Es war sehr gut organisiert. Am Treffpunkt wurden wir unserem Guide zugewiesen. Wir hatten einen tollen Ausflug, haben viele detaillierte Informationen bekommen. Zur Fähre kamen wir bevorzugt. Auf dem Sockel waren wir fast die einzigen Besucher. Von Ellis Island hat man einen traumhaften Blick auf Manhattan. Super
