Get a fun, irreverent take on a New York icon with a 3-hour Statue of Liberty tour that includes pedestal access and round-trip ferry tickets from Battery Park. Hear insider stories about Lady Liberty and New York City history, from octopus attacks to dead seagulls, French-American relations, and Statue of Liberty’s tongue-in-cheek nickname. If you want to keep exploring on your own following the pedestal visit, the ferry tickets included in this tour are good for a bonus trip to Ellis Island.
  • 3-hour Statue of Liberty tour
  • Visit with a wise-cracking, history-loving guide
  • Get pedestal access for the best views
  • Round-trip ferry tickets included
  • Option to visit Ellis Island following the tour
Make your way to Battery Park for a morning departure (exact departure times vary with season, see “Additional Info” for details), then board a ferry boat for Liberty Island with a local guide.

Enjoy views of the New York City Harbor during the crossing, as your guide shares some offbeat stories from New York City history—ever heard of the suspected octopus attack that took down a local ferry?

Upon arrival at Liberty Island, you’ll have access to the Statue pedestal, where you can climb under the skirts of Lady Liberty to learn the story of her construction. Find out the inside scoop on the dramatic sculptor, the frosty reception that New Yorkers gave to the new statue, and the seagull casualties caused by the torch. Get panoramic views (and the ultimate New York selfie) from the pedestal, which looks out at the skyline of Lower Manhattan.

The guided tour concludes at Liberty Island: from there, you can board a ferry back to Battery Park, or use your ferry ticket to continue to Ellis Island at no extra cost.

Had always wanted to visit the great lady, and this was a fun and informative way to do it! Even my teenage daughter enjoyed this tour.

An excellent morning out. Fun facts and a few outright lies. Quizzes included.

The tour, guide, and experience was fantastic. This is a great way to learn a bit of history with humor sprinkled in to make the whole experience fun. Our guide was funny, helpful, and informative. We learned so much through our tour of the museum as well as while walking the grounds surrounding Lady Liberty. I plan to come back with my kids and take them on this tour.

This was a great way to see the Statue. Sheree hope I spelled that right was great and very knowledgeable. Would do it again, without hesitation.

A different way to see the statue...not the typical history lesson...added some fun flair to a topic we were familiar with. Made it interesting with time to see the pedestal and the museum if we chose to do that at the end of the tour. Guide was animated and gave a history lesson with a humor twist. Liked having a little humor in an overwhelming city. i would recommend this...but would love to book early and go to the crown if i had a choice

Cheree was great. Lady Liberty has a great story, the tour was a good pace and the whole event was a lot of fun. Would recommend and would do it again in a heart beat.

I hope when they make a mockumentary of my life, she will do the narration.

Loved this tour! Had a group of 6, with 4 kids that ranged from 13 to 10 and they had a blast. Scott, our guide, was awesome. Made the tour interesting for both kids and adults and was super on top of making sure that our group knew exactly what we needed to do upon our departure from Liberty Island. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that doesn't just want to read plaques in a museum at their own pace. Can't recommend this enough!
