The tour was fantastic! A great deal was due to our guide Christine. She was very personable, knowledgeable and helpful. You could really feel how passionate she was about her job! Thanks again Chrisine for a great experience.
My wife and I felt doubly blessed to find this great tour option. First, we didn't plan it until the last minute, but found it easy to find and very well-done. Our guide, Kristen, was so pleasant, helped us stay on pace through the security wickets, kept us alert of the best places to view things and even laid on the ground to take our pictures from the base of the Statue of Liberty. Second, its early start is SO important as you avoid the crush of people that begins just an hour later. By the time we came down from the Statue's pedestal, Liberty Island was swamped with people. We also enjoyed riding the PATH train into WTC and taking the 15 minute walk down Broadway past the historic St. Paul's and Trinity churches and the W.S. Bull. We grabbed breakfast from a deli and ate at the picnic tables in front of Pier A House, the link up point, with a view of Battery Park and the Statue. It was perfect!
Uncle Jeffrey was so charming. He brought life to the history surrounding the statue and the plight of immigrants coming through Ellis Island. The early access was worth it! Seeing the crowds showing up later in the day made us grateful we got started so early!
Rob was great. Good value for the money. No lines at ferry or on the islands.
SO glad we booked this tour. We didn't plan our trip early enough to make it to the top of the Statue of Liberty but glad we made it into the pedestal. The museum in there is really nice and our tour guide Amanda filled us in on many good stories. She really made this tour fantastic! Had a lot of tidbits, kept the tour moving but we had plenty of time to see everything we wanted. She even took pictures of everyone under the statue! Great walk thru on Ellis Island and again, Amanda full of knowledge so we didn't have to read everything. We had the early tour which allowed us on one of the first ferry's to the island so it wasn't crowded. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Rob, our guide was well prepared and extremely knowledgable. Rob's ability to share/teach about the history of both Lady Liberty and Ellis Island was engaging and thorough. He was personable
and related well to our 11 yr old daughter, as well as the other children on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and Rob as a guide.
Good value, informative tour. I come to NYC frequently but hadn't been to the Statue since I was in elementary school. This tour was well run, had a visible meeting spot, and was a highlight of our trip. Uncle Jeffrey is a kind, entertaining soul who represents so much of NYC - a place where you can follow your dreams and connect with people from all over the world. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the statute and her history.
Our guide, Jerry, was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and conscientious! He did a terrific job!
The tour was great! Jerry was very friendly and knowledgeable. The only concern I had was that we showed up 30 minutes early and no one was there. We weren't sure if we were in the right place.The guides didn't arrive until 10-15 minutes before meet time.
Wonderful, informative, friendly. Quality tour guide, Jon, made it fun and educational. Well Worth the price.
