Traveler Tips


To make the most of it you really need to go first thing in the morning as the queues to get onto the boat were long other than that it all went very well.
Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island.
Tell your guide if you have a walking disability, so they came make adjustments with the timing of the tour.

Don’t do this TOUR!!!
Priscilla_K, Dec 2022
“Daniel” our tour guide was a pathological liar making up all kind of strange stories about Broadway and being a dancer. He was crazy! Then he left my 2 daughters at Liberty Island and they had to find another boat to take them back. It was AWFUL and he should be fired.
Excellent - Thank you Matt

Daniel or Broadway as he is, gave a most important tour of history of the United States sharing his own family experience. Touring statue of liberty and Ellis Island reminds us of our great history of non prosecution and finding a better life for ourselves and loved ones. Highly recommended

Ellis Island was very interesting. The exhibits were numerous and very well done . AJ ,our guide, was just Ok . Seemed distracted during our tour .
Great tour of two iconic American islands
Dave_A, Dec 2022
Wife and I were in Manhattan to see a play. The evening we get there (day before the matinee play) she says she'd like to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We're rather pressed for time the next day, and going home the next... but Viator to the rescue! (We've used Viator many times before, so that's often the first place we check.) We found this tour, booked, and had a great time. We just wish we had a bit more time before going home to explore Ellis Island more, but that's completely on us. Our guide (Mike) was very knowledgable (and good at presenting that knowledge clearly and entertainingly) and great at answering our questions.
Very good experience
Senad_U, Dec 2022

The guide Daniel was amazing - truly bringing together the history of each site visited. Great work Broadway:)))
Highly recommend this tour!!!
Kathy_P, Nov 2022
Our tour guide Jeff was awesome! Engaging, highly knowledgeable and fun… We’ve been to the Statue of Liberty several times, and we’re not spring chickens…but we learned so much on this tour about the creators & what all went into this fabulous, worldwide beacon of hope. It was a great lesson for our 15 year-old granddaughter, too: The power of a few individuals to change the world! Bravo to this tour. Highly recommend taking it.
Great efficient tour- Ask for Jeff!
BethanySak, Nov 2022
Jeff was amazing! If you can request him for any tour he will educate you while making you laugh. The tour ran on time and was an efficient way to learn about both historic sites.
Fantastic tour!
Katherine_B, Nov 2022

Jacqueline_E, Nov 2022
This was by far the best tour I found for my family visiting from TN. My husband and I joined them and we learned so much from our tour guide "Broadway". Our visiting family were amazed at the sites and the history education received from our wonderful tour guide.
What a fun and informative tour!
Margot_G, Nov 2022
