What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Statue of Liberty Monument Access and 9/11 Memorial

Wonder at the serene twin reflecting pools of the 9/11 Memorial

Head to the Financial District in Lower Manhattan to meet up with your knowledgeable local guide for this Viator Exclusive tour. The tour starts by perambulating down Wall Street, the famous lane that has become synonymous for massive American financial institutions. Learn about the history of the street and the surrounding area, particularly about the early days of 'New Amsterdam,' when the city was a Dutch colony. 

After spending some time on Wall Street, walk over to the nearby 9/11 memorial, the site of the tragic terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Stand at the two enormous reflecting pools, the footprints of the two towers, and read the names of the victims that are etched around the pools. Don't forget to look up at the new One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. 

After this sobering experience, head to the lower tip of Manhattan to get on a ferry. Stroll right past the line to board, as you have skip-the-line priority access. Find a comfortable seat for the short ride to Liberty Island. While on the ferry, enjoy the views of the Manhattan skyline and learn about the history of Lady Liberty from your guide. 

Once on the island, get an audio guide and let it take you to various parts of the island. It's available in nine different languages. When you're done, head inside the the pedestal of the statue, a fare experience for a visitor. About half the height of the entire monument, the upper part of the pedestal offers immense and breathtaking views of the surroundings, including lower Manhattan, Ellis Island and Staten Island. Don't forget your camera! Only a limited number of visitors are permitted per day, so be the fortunate one to experience the Statue of Liberty up-close.

Your ticket also includes access to the Liberty Island Museum. Learn about the difficulties and triumphs that France and the US overcame to build this universal symbol of liberty and democracy as well as about how the perception of the statue has changed since it was built in 1886. 

After the visit to the museum, the tour finishes. Opt to stay on the island to further explore. Or, once on the ferry, choose to hop off at Ellis Island, the gateway for 12 million immigrants.

Please note: This tour does NOT include admission to the 9/11 Museum and Statue of Liberty Crown admission.

Rachel and Alice were lots of fun and informative. My daughter really enjoyed the tour of Wall Street which surprised me as much as seeing the Statue of Liberty. 9//11 tour was sensitive and well timed. I would recommend this to everyone of any age. Well paced with highly motivated tour guides.

My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Even though it was a cool day with a steady rain, it was still good. Definitely worth it. Plus, it's a good way to score tickets to the statue of liberty and Ellis Island last minute since they are part of the package.

We really enjoyed our tour with Tim, he was a very knowledgable guide with a great sense of humour and very friendly. We learnt things we would have never of known, a very interesting tour. I would thoroughly recommend the tour to anyone. It's a great way to see parts of New York. Thanks for some great memories.

Didn't realize the walking part through Wall Street and the 911 Memorial were a big part of the time. Finally got on the ferry to go to the Statue of Liberty, we were able to spend as much time or as little time at the Statue. The same was true for Ellis Island. Nice to have that option.
