Daily 8:30am - 6pm
Liberty Island, New York City, New York, 10004

The Basics

Statue of Liberty tours start with a scenic ferry ride to the island, where you can explore the grounds or head to the famed 10-story-high observation pedestal to see the original torch. From there, enjoy great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. You can also secure tickets to the crown but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight, while informative audio tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. The monument is also a highlight on New York Harbor cruises, city helicopter tours, and waterfront walking tours.

The tour guide was AWESOME! Even my teens got something out of the history. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend. I learned so much about the history of the area. It was like jumping through time as our tour guide took us through the area.

Statue of Liberty Express Ferry Ticket Plus the new Statue of Liberty Museum
Leanne is a great guide, very animated & funny. Her knowledge of Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and NY history is impressive. Look for the person with the yellow hat and yellow flag infront of starbucks, he has your tickets and will introduce you to your guide.

Our guide John was awesome. He had so much history information and presented it in an interesting, sometimes dramatic and funny! He held our interest and was the complete package‼️ My husband and I felt fortunate to be in his group! My only negative comment is we felt we needed more time at the Statue of Liberty! We enjoyed spending the afternoon on Ellis Island leisurely until 5:30pm😊👍🏻
