SO FUN AND INFORMATIVE .... we all enjoyed the day beyond! our tour guide Jim made the day -- Please tip your guide as without them it would not be as informative - if you have an older person use the elevator and don't go to the crown --it would be too much on them - We were a group of 6 - everything was on time and so fun... we chose not to go to ellis island and went to the dead rabbit after the ferry -- go there - you will love the experience!

The sites were in great condition. I went over 10 years ago and I love the updates to the museum and how many more artifacts were added.

The location to meet our guide and get our tickets was easy to find and close to the port. The lines to board the cruise and go through security were long and I would recommend bringing an umbrella for shade in the heat or for cover in the rain. Nice cruise and access to the Statue of Liberty and Pedestal. The views from the pedestal were beautiful. There is a cafeteria, restrooms, and gift shop on the island. A must do when visiting New York.
