Worth booking ahead to speed the process. Security before getting on the ferry took about an hour and more security before Statue of Liberty. Much more to do on Ellis Island. Book a morning tour. Sean did an excellent tour plenty of facts and photos to explain events
This tour was a great experience. Top Dog Tours and our guide Nicole did everything they said they would do. Nicole was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable about the subject. Her presentation was easy to understand interesting.Very rewarding expeience
We had a lovely time at the liberty island to see the lady up and personal, James our tour guide was very knowledgeable.. I personally found the Ellis Island a little boring would be interesting if you had relatives that had migrated through this island.. Wouldn't want to put anyone off as it is a personal thing..
Great narrative and excellent flow provided by Sean of Top Dog tours. According to Sean, Top Dog will limit the number of patrons to 12-15... and this was our case wherein 25-30 showed up at the meeting place, and then were divided into two equal and separate groups, each with their own guide.Attention to detail and answering all question made our visit very satisfying... thanks..!
Finally made it to the Statue of Liberty after a number of trips to NYC. A great way to see / visit the Statue without the queues skip the line. Ellis Island had been a surprise and well worth the visit. The tour is well organised and fun, definitely recommend.
