We received an excellent tour from Joel on Friday, October 11, 2019. He is knowledgeable as well as entertaining. He took time to answer all our questions and made sure we received all of the information that the tour provided - without rushing us. We had just the right amount of time at the Statue of Liberty, seeing the museum as well. And, we feel we had just the right amount of time at Ellis Island too. We appreciated him and felt he gave us the attention to detail that we expected from a "private tour". Thank you.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided the right information at the right time to maximize the tour. His red book of historical images gave us great perspective about the sites. He also expertly managed the time and a group spanning from 10 to 84 years of age.

It was my wife's 1st time visiting the Statue of Liberty and my 3rd. Hannah was our tour guide. I learned more about the history of the Statue of Liberty and Clinton Castle than all my previous visits combined. When we met Hannah to start the tour. She went over specifics of our tour. She told us where and when would be a good time and place to eat. She also let us know that we would get some time to explore by ourselves. We both enjoyed having her as a guide and will request her for other tours in the future.

Liz was very informative. She brought the historical facts to life. She would make a great history teacher. We got through the lines quickly thanks to her knowledge and expertise. We had a very good day.

Hannah was our guide and she did a great job. She was on-time, friendly and very knowledgeable. Since we were an elderly couple she allowed us to go at our own pace and gave a helping hand on the boat ramps, when we needed one.
