    • "Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island." See review
    • "Tell your guide if you have a walking disability, so they came make adjustments with the timing of the tour." See review

    Although I have visited the Statue of Liberty as a young child visiting again with a tour guide as an adult was able to get more history and knowledge. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny which made the experience great. He even asked the group if he wanted our picture taken at the best view of the statue.
