Having been to NYC many, many times, I had never taken the time to go and see Lady Liberty. I am so glad I finally did! The boat trip out to Bedloe Island always seemed to be too time consuming. Booking the trip through Viator was easy and I knew the tour would be up to Viator's high standards. Frank was our tour guide, and he was entertaining, interesting, and knowledgeable. He handled the boat tickets, getting us all on board and made everything as easy as possible. This trip is wonderful for families, singles, and couples. It would be very difficult for handicapped people, as it requires lots of climbing stairs, on and off boats, and crowds.

The Tour was amazing and very informative. Our very talented guide Rachel told us about history, interesting facts about people, which arrived in the US by boats. What was really interesting to me, our guide knows a lot of real stories about immigrants, because people and tourists shared with her sometimes. Also our guide took pictures with Statue of Liberty background for each of us. Inside Statue we saw installations and heard history as well. I recommend this tour for all tourists who visit in NY.

Probably the best part of our week in NYC - our tour guide was very well-informed and passionate about the tour. Definitely worth the added cost, I actually felt bad for the tourists that were going alone and missing out on the details.
