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.

A Great Statue of Liberty Experience.
After myself and my daughter decided not to join a 4.5 hour queues we booked the tour online and met the following day at the agreed rendezvous point. We were met by Rob who was not only a great guy but was extremely knowledgable and he made the whole experience real special. This tour is fab value for money and I would highly recommend. Robs colleagues looked just as enthusiastic too but fingers crossed that you may get allocated with the maestro.

Jacob was a great guide. you get to go up the pedestal, but not to crown, which was fine with us. There is an elevator that skips most of stairs.

Our tour guide Rob was amazing!
More than discovering more about The Liberty most especially Ellis Island, I do believe that the success of the tour and journey lies on the tour guide. Rob is an amazing guide, very lively and sharp and takes care of the group. Very smart and informative and I have learned so much from him more than I could have compared to searching information from Google and Wikipedia. The way he conducted his tour evolves on personal experience expesially on Ellis Island. I am amazed how he did a research on his own family and have manuscripts and stories that match to prove it. I do not know if the guide has seniority or levels, if so, Rob deserves a raise and a promotion! We will take back all the amazing stories, information and great memories of this tour with us and we’ll recommend this to our friends.

I wanted to hear history not political rhetoric on my guided tour. The location to meet the guide was not very clear in the information provided. There were not signs or indications of where the tour was to get started.

Very interesting tour with an even more sympathetic guide, who knew and explained numerous details. If you want to visit Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, you should absolutely book this early access tour, before masses of tourists arrive, it's worth while.

Eindrucksvolle Tour
Grandiose Tour, was aber v.a. an dem hervorragenden Tourguide Ryan gelegen hat. Dieser hat es geschafft, viel Wissen auf sehr klare, witzige und leicht verdauliche Art und Weise zu übermitteln und dabei die ganze Zeit das Gefühl zu vermitteln, dass er auch sehr viel Spaß an der ganzen Sache hatte. Es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall diese frühe Tour zu nehmen, weil es danach nur noch voller wird.
