Our tour guide, Loretta, was very knowledgeable, professional and engaging. She took the time to ensure her group of 20 people were always assembled at each stage of the Statue and Ellis Island ferry excursions. Visiting the 911 Sites, literally, brought tears to my eyes but it was encouraging to see the rebuilding process progressing.
For the reasonable cost of the tour I would, unequivocally, recommend the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour and having Loretta as a tour guide.

Our guide, Kevin, was very knowledgeable on the history of the Statue and Ellis Island. Worth going with a guide.

Our tour guide Matt was funny and informative.
We had priority boarding on the ferry so bypassed some of the crowds.

Jeff was awesome. He was very informative and told great stories. He knew all the best ways to make our experience the best it could be. We were a part of 5 and we all enjoyed the day. The best part of the trip was the picture Jeff took of our group under Lady Liberty. He was a great guide and I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for some great history and amazing views.

We booked this at the last minute as a way to get access to the Statue of Liberty pedastal, because all the pedastal access tickets were already sold out for the day. It was an easy way to see the Statue of Liberty, because having the guide took the guess work out of where to go and what to do, but a lot of time was spent navigating the group of 15-20 people through the long security lines, so I am not sure whether all that time spent trying to keep the group together was worth the tour? It worked out great for us because we wanted the pedastal access tickets, and Joe our tour guide was great, but if I could have gotten the tickets directly for the day we probably would have skipped the tour. Worth the money though, particularly if you feel you need help navigating how to get out to the island.

Our tour guide (Patrick) was very good and very helpful with our questions and his overall knowledge. Lady Liberty is a good tour. Highly recommended.

I’m sure this would be a welcome experience for most people but entirely too crowded. If we did if again (NOT) we would do differently preferably on our own.
