What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Statue of Liberty Monument Access and 9/11 Memorial

Wonder at the serene twin reflecting pools of the 9/11 Memorial

Head to the Financial District in Lower Manhattan to meet up with your knowledgeable local guide for this Viator Exclusive tour. The tour starts by perambulating down Wall Street, the famous lane that has become synonymous for massive American financial institutions. Learn about the history of the street and the surrounding area, particularly about the early days of 'New Amsterdam,' when the city was a Dutch colony. 

After spending some time on Wall Street, walk over to the nearby 9/11 memorial, the site of the tragic terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Stand at the two enormous reflecting pools, the footprints of the two towers, and read the names of the victims that are etched around the pools. Don't forget to look up at the new One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. 

After this sobering experience, head to the lower tip of Manhattan to get on a ferry. Stroll right past the line to board, as you have skip-the-line priority access. Find a comfortable seat for the short ride to Liberty Island. While on the ferry, enjoy the views of the Manhattan skyline and learn about the history of Lady Liberty from your guide. 

Once on the island, get an audio guide and let it take you to various parts of the island. It's available in nine different languages. When you're done, head inside the the pedestal of the statue, a fare experience for a visitor. About half the height of the entire monument, the upper part of the pedestal offers immense and breathtaking views of the surroundings, including lower Manhattan, Ellis Island and Staten Island. Don't forget your camera! Only a limited number of visitors are permitted per day, so be the fortunate one to experience the Statue of Liberty up-close.

Your ticket also includes access to the Liberty Island Museum. Learn about the difficulties and triumphs that France and the US overcame to build this universal symbol of liberty and democracy as well as about how the perception of the statue has changed since it was built in 1886. 

After the visit to the museum, the tour finishes. Opt to stay on the island to further explore. Or, once on the ferry, choose to hop off at Ellis Island, the gateway for 12 million immigrants.

Please note: This tour does NOT include admission to the 9/11 Museum and Statue of Liberty Crown admission.

Great tour especially when you find the tour guide however Brad was sound around Wall Street and knew his stuff made the trip better being guided around instead of just heading to lady liberty with no knowledge

What a fun tour. It starts with an approximately 2 hour walking tour of Wall St, Federal Hall, Trinity Church, 9/11 Memorial, and then down to Battery Park. The guide is very fun and informative. Great sense of humor and you can tell he really enjoys his work. He even had a tablet to show us additional pictures that supplemented his explanations of things. Once at Battery Park, you then go on your own to the Statue of Liberty via ferry and you get to use the shorter reserve line to board, and you get to go to the Pedestal of the SoL.

Following that, you get to go to Ellis Island, which is now a museum on American immigration. Really interesting stuff. You can spend as much time as you want on Liberty Island and Ellis Island, so you can do everything from the start of the walking tour to the end in 5 hours or much longer if you really want to go at a leisurely place. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see these sights of NYC.
