Make your own way to Castle Clinton in Battery Park to meet your guide at the time specified at checkout.
Board your Statue Cruises ferry and travel the short distance to Liberty Island, your first stop of the day. Visit the Pedestal Museum to see a collection of Statue of Liberty artifacts, such as the first version of her torch and photographs of the statue under construction.
Afterward, climb 215 steps to the top of the pedestal. From there, you'll take in panoramic views of New York City. Then take a stroll around the small island on your own, or grab a quick bite before rejoining your guide for the trip to Ellis Island.
On Ellis Island, you'll visit the original Immigration Station, carefully restored after decades of neglect and renovated to house the Museum of Immigration. Hear the stories of the millions of immigrants who came through Ellis Island, and have time to browse the collections or search the extensive archives.
After four hours, your tour concludes with return to Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.
