Was amazing from start to finish . Matt our guide was simply brilliant, funny, knowledge was second to none, easy going, informative and simply made the trip . He never once referred to any notes and his recall of information was extraordinary.. Everyone was mesmerised by him and his personality throughout. He took time to find out about everyone on the tour . If your booking this or any trip try and get on the one that Matt hosts. Great value for money. He's a credit to himself, your company, New York and the United States of America. Merry Christmas to all our friends and brothers across the pond We hope to see you again soon .

Lindsey is amazing - so knowledgeable about all things historical- a fantastic guide to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. She’s a wealth of information and a delight to spend time with.

Jim was very informative and we learned a lot. Overall experience was good. Only negative would be we felt rushed at times when wanted to see more at Statue of Liberty. Was also told we would be going to another level in pedestal to be able to take photos but didn’t.

This was a fantastic experience mostly because of Lindsey, our guide. She was fun, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, competent, knowledgeable, fun, (oh I already said that, didn't I).

The tour was pretty good. The guide, Kevin Fitzpatrick, was very knowledgeable and proficient at leading us around. He did very nicely relaying historical details to the group. And he was quite accommodating in getting the group in just the right spot for photos - both at the sites and on the ferries. It was a bit crowded at each location, but Kevin new the best method to get to where we needed to be. And he was pretty much all business - not really personable. He received a generous tip from us - which he earned. But perhaps some slight of hand ws involved. All in all very good.

There are iconic attractions around the world and then there are those you MUST see close up and personal. This was a well organised tour with a very enthusiastic guide who looked after us whilst at the statue and Ellis Island. The view of the Manhattan skyline from the pedestal is fantastic as is the view of the statue from close up. Ellis Island is well worth investing time to better understand how the immigrants were welcomed into the USA - fascinating history lesson. This has to be one of the tours you do when visiting New York.

Being a New Yorker I actually never had the chance to visit the liberty and Ellis islands. This was a wonderful experience! The tour guid Kevin was very knowledgeable, nice and professional. I learned a lot about the history of immigration and the Statue of Liberty and overal enjoyed the tour.

This tour was wonderful. The directions were clear and I was able to take the subway there myself. This was my first trip to NYC and Lady Liberty and Ellis Island were one of the main places I wanted to visit. The trip was well organised and well worth the fee. Our guide was Matt, who was great. He had knowledge and humor and enthusiasm, Which made the tour even more memorable.
