Wonderful tour w a great guide--Patrick. He was patient and very knowledgeable. Kept us on schedule. This was a tour much needed now, to remind us of our commonalities and how the US is a WELCOMING country. We are all immigrants, we are all 'huddled' masses. Getting the history of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is amazing. Lots to know and be proud of, yet reminds us of our humanity. I would do this tour again...

Well done Patrick for making the tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island so interesting. The history of both was very interesting. To make the most of it you really need to go first thing in the morning as the queues to get onto the boat were long other than that it all went very well.
