Tour guide was most knowledgeable. Had plenty of time to see both islands. So much better than going on your own. Guide used personal listening devices that really helped.

My husband and I (New Yorkers) took our 14 year old grandson, visiting from Atlanta, on this entertaining and informative tour to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Mike, our guide, was perfect — responsible, knowledgeable, warm and funny. He even lay down on his back to get a great photo of the three of us with Lady Liberty. I highly recommend Mike and this tour!

Our tour was pretty good, even if he lost one of our members along the way. Unfortunately, she lost out on seeing a few details. Boat ride was good, as our guide told us where to sit to see the most and when to get off. Loved both places, wished I had longer on Ellis Island to research or option to

Absolutely excellent tour. Kevin was phenomenal with all of the history and knowledge of Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. I learned so much about that point in time. My 11 year old granddaughter was also part of our tour and he incorporated her right into the trip and shared his knowledge at a level that both older adults as well as children could understand. Highly highly recommend this tour and tour guide! Loved it!
