Our tour guide, Hannah, was very knowledgeable and expressed herself well making the tour very enjoyable. It's a very long tour so you probably don't want to plan anything else until the evening but the tour itself was excellent.
Our group of 19 was the perfect size to tour the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Hannah was a great guide. She provided interesting information and little known facts about the sites. She was funny and kept the tour moving at just the right speed. Highly recommend this tour group!!
Our guide, Liz, was amazing. We went on the tour with our 4 children and she was able to keep them captivated for 4 hours! She was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We definitely recommend this tour!

This was a great tour. The group size was only 9 people and Sean was an excellent guide. I got lost on my way there and was afraid I was going to miss it. Sean called just before 9;30 to check if I was coming. Turned out I was only a couple of minutes away so I didnt miss it. I really appreciated him taking the time to do that.
Sean was very knowledgable and handled questions from adults and kids with ease. I liked that the tour ended on Ellis Island leaving us on our own to explore as we wanted to. The park there offers and excellent free audio tour. There was just enough time with the Statue of Liberty.
I highly recommend this tour!
This small tour was certainly worth the taking as our guide James sorted tickets and gave a really interesting history and guide of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The tour enabled us to have access to the pedestal as daily tickets are limited in numbers and would not have been able to do that otherwise. James was able to speed us through the queues and tell us where to stand on the boat and islands to get the best photos and views adding a lot of value to the day and I felt it was worth paying for a small tour as this was the main thing we wanted to see on our visit to NY!
