Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A highly anticipated destination opened in 2015, One World Observatory stands tall on the site of the September 11 attacks — a testament to a city that rebuilt itself after tragedy. You'll end your tour on a very high note on the 102nd floor of the tower, said to be the strongest in the world.
Before hopping on the ferry for the Statue of Liberty, meet your guide at Battery Park to receive your reserve-line ticket. Then enjoy the views of Manhattan and Staten Island from the ferry. Once at the statue, climb the 215 steps to get to the pedestal and enjoy the amazing views of the lower Manhattan skyline. Learn about the history of Lady Liberty and how it was constructed.

After, hop back on the ferry and make the short journey to Ellis Island, the immigration center where more than 12 million immigrants entered the United States from 1892 to 1954. Spend about 2.5 hours exploring and be sure to check out the restored Great Hall of Ellis Island Immigration Museum and the many intriguing interactive displays. Later, return to lower Manhattan via ferry and indulge in lunch (at your own expense) before reuniting with your guide in Battery Park.

See the 9/11-related sites, including St. Paul’s Chapel, a place where New Yorkers gravitated to in order to bond and pray in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Inside there are many memorials, including hand-drawn cards, photographs and personal items. 

Stroll over to the National September 11 Memorial to have a look at the twin reflecting pools, complete with falling water, the footprints of the Twin Towers. Be sure to stop by the Fireman’s Memorial, the ‘Survivor Tree,’ the sole tree that survived the fall of the buildings, and symbol of the strength of the Big Apple and its denizens.

Here is the where the guided portion of the tour ends. But it’s where you get the most spectacular view of New York City and surrounding area. With your pre-reserved ticket, skip the line and head to the elevator of One World Observatory. Board the Skypod (aka elevator) and be prepared to elevate: in the sixty seconds it takes to get to the 102nd floor, watch an incredible video of the history of New York City and how much it has changed over the centuries.

From 1,250 feet (365 meters) above the city, take in the 360-degree views. Step into the Sky Portal, a 14-foot wide (4-meter) disc in the floor that shows the streets below in live HD. Then enjoy the many interactive options, including City Pulse, which shares stories of the Big Apple.

If all that viewing has built up an appetite or thirst, head to the 101st floor where there are dining, cafe and bar options. Spend as much time as you like checking out the view or feasting on food.

Great to see these iconic locations. Unfortunately we did not receive information from our tour guide about going on to the afternoon tour if you had selected that, which we had and we miss out on that part. The afternoon guide caught up with us later on and provided us with our tickets to the one world viewing platform. Big tick to Amanda to catching up with us at the end.

Our tour guide Jeff was amazing! Funny and Knowledgable! The Liberty/Ellis/Observatory all in one day is a lot. I wouldn't recommend doing all 3 if you are not used to being on your feet. Well worth the money to get the historical insights.

I really enjoyed this tour. But I must share my Words of Experience that I wasn't expecting: I didn't realize there were 2 separate tours. I thought we would be with the same group. Turned out in the morning was the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. That ended in the afternoon. Then there was a 2 hour gap where we were supposed to met at this church for the 2nd half of the tour Lower Manhattan and One World. Well we went to the wrong Church, walked a few more blocks down and saw a group of people and found our group. I swear, if I didn't ask our first tour guide I would have never figured this out.
So we started the tour at 9am earlier since you have to get yourself to Battery Park finished the first half around 1pm. Started the 2nd tour around 3pm and didn't end till 8pm. Mind you this was in November. My new husband and I were freezing and tired because this is an ALL DAY WALKING TOUR. My poor hubby got so sick by the end of the day.
Knowing what I know now...I've done the Statue and Ellis Island I only did that for my hubby. Next time I would just do the Manhattan Sightseeing and One World. The 2nd half of the tour, even though we were freezing, tired, and sick I LOVED it. Seeing the memorial to the world trade...there's....there's just nothing like it.
Good tour just be forewarned 1. it's not the same group 2. it is an all day walking tour 3. bring a backpack with extra jackets if you're visiting in the winter

Being my first trip to New York, our tour guide Christina made it extremely wonderful. She was just great, very knowledgeable and organized. Weather had been such great and with Christina our day just became fabulous. Can't wait to go back for another time...
