Our Guide Cherie was excellent. She was very informative and explained a lot of the details that went into the building of the Statue of Liberty, the refurbishing of the Statue.
The Ellis Island Tour was also very informative after Cherie explained everything to us.

Our tour guide was fantastic. She had many stories about the Statue and the people who came to America via Ellis Island. She was both entertaining and informative. I have relatives who came to America via Ellis Island and got the paperwork from the ship's records.

It was a drizzly, overcast morning when we headed to Liberty Island. We deliberately booked an early trip, 8.30am, knowing that with jet lag we would all be up! This turned out to be a good decision, with the queues, boat crossing and island pretty quiet.
Rob our guide was excellent. His training as a classical actor certainly shone through, particularly in his interaction with the children in our group of 16. Everything ran like clockwork, although it would have been nice to have spent more time in the new Liberty museum. That aside I would highly recommend the trip.
