Wow - our guide Debbie was amazing from start to Finish. The trip was all I wished for and more. Debbie was informative, funny, entertaining and gave us so much information not only about the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island but also the sky line and history of the city. She is a true professional and her love for the city shines through. We were so lucky to have her on our tour. The city is not only the star of the show. Debbie and guides like her make all the difference. A true star. Thanks Debbi

I and two friends very much enjoyed our tour of the Statue of Liberty with James. (I've booked several previous tours with Viator, and have never been disappointed.) James was welcoming as we gathered near Battery Park, made clear what the rules and procedures were, provided ample time for us to walk to points on the tour (but also did not permit folks to lag), and was always where he said he would be for us to meet him. Most importantly, he provided a rich account of the planning and construction of the Statue of Liberty, with attention to the roles of several women.

(One small detail: US suffragists used that word to distinguish themselves from British suffragettes, who were more militant than the Americans.)

James even positioned himself outside the Statue of Liberty so that each of us could ask him to take the perfect photo of us standing in front of Lady Liberty.

I highly recommend Viator in general for informative tours, and James in particular for a tour of the Statue of Liberty.

Much more interesting and enjoyable than we thought it would be. A historic world landmark and the boat journey was fun too, Ellis Island was ok not so good and don’t eat lunch there.

This was a comprehensive tour with many details and history provided by our very capable guide, Jim, who was extremely knowledgeable. He went the extra mile on everything, including laying on his back to take a photo of us in front of the Lady. We did not allow enough time for the Ellis Island museum, and regret that, but it was a wonderful tour!!

From beginning to end we were captivated by Matt’s flare of imparting detail in a variety of ways- he dramatized, quoted poetry, made us stop and think about different conditions and situations leading up to this time in their lives, bringing out the personal choices that had to be made by the immigrants going through Ellis Island.He was personable and professional and really wanted us to take away good memories of our day. A wonderful tour!
