Jeff was awesome. He was very informative and told great stories. He knew all the best ways to make our experience the best it could be. We were a part of 5 and we all enjoyed the day. The best part of the trip was the picture Jeff took of our group under Lady Liberty. He was a great guide and I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for some great history and amazing views.
Good tour, great way to get in the Statue of Liberty Pedastal

We booked this at the last minute as a way to get access to the Statue of Liberty pedastal, because all the pedastal access tickets were already sold out for the day. It was an easy way to see the Statue of Liberty, because having the guide took the guess work out of where to go and what to do, but a lot of time was spent navigating the group of 15-20 people through the long security lines, so I am not sure whether all that time spent trying to keep the group together was worth the tour? It worked out great for us because we wanted the pedastal access tickets, and Joe our tour guide was great, but if I could have gotten the tickets directly for the day we probably would have skipped the tour. Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island.
Our recent tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island could not have been better. Jeff, our tour guide, did an excellent job. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the history of both sites, but he also gave us all the information we needed to make our tour easy and very worthwhile. I would certainly recommend Jeff for a visit to these very important historical sites.
