  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING DEPARTURE TIME: The trip requires a ferry to reach the Statue of Liberty. The tour must depart as scheduled to stay on time and keep with the ferry schedule, therefore we unfortunately cannot wait for late arrivals. A small delay of even 5 or 10 minutes could set the tour back 20 to 30 minutes. Please plan to arrive at the meeting point AT LEAST 15 to 30 minutes or more prior to scheduled departure to compensate for any travel delays on the day of your tour. Once the guide departs we cannot guarantee that guests who haven't checked in will be able to join the tour. Meeting point is at Starbucks where breakfast, coffee, tea etc. are available for purchase.
  • Please do not listen to any direction given by people on the street. There are many tour operators and ticket sellers operating in the area who are not representative of our company. We cannot be responsible for instructions given by people who are not representatives of our company.
  • If you require assistance please call the number listed on this voucher as early as possible. While we appreciate calls letting us know you are running late we cannot hold the tour as explained above.
  • NO REFUNDS are issued for missing the tour due to late arrival.
  • Based on availability guests may be able to re-book to another tour on another date. The ferry tickets that we purchase for your visit are non-refundable and space is limited therefore a rebooking fee will be assessed.

Traveler Tips


  • "To make the most of it you really need to go first thing in the morning as the queues to get onto the boat were long other than that it all went very well." See review
  • "Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island." See review
  • "Note you cannot access the crown on this tour, but you get excellent views and photographs from the pedestal." See review

Matt was a great guide as he was a great story teller. We went over Christmas break so crowds were obnoxious. Also, this is a long day and by the time we got to Ellis island at the end of the tour, we didn't give the museum enough time. I would recommend breaking Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour to two different days if you want to give the museum it's due.

Wonderful tour w a great guide--Patrick. He was patient and very knowledgeable. Kept us on schedule. This was a tour much needed now, to remind us of our commonalities and how the US is a WELCOMING country. We are all immigrants, we are all 'huddled' masses. Getting the history of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is amazing. Lots to know and be proud of, yet reminds us of our humanity. I would do this tour again...
