Statue of Liberty

Daily 8:30am - 6pm
Liberty Island, New York City, New York, 10004

The Basics

Statue of Liberty tours start with a scenic ferry ride to the island, where you can explore the grounds or head to the famed 10-story-high observation pedestal to see the original torch. From there, enjoy great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. You can also secure tickets to the crown but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight, while informative audio tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. The monument is also a highlight on New York Harbor cruises, city helicopter tours, and waterfront walking tours.

Our First Trip to NYC
There were only 5 visitors on our tour which allowed a great deal of attention from Ray, our guide. All of us arrived within minutes of the appointed time, and dressed warmly for outdoors. Ray was extremely knowledgeable of the history of NY, and presented it in such a manner to keep us laughing at times while telling the story of a building, man, or a name on the sidewalk. Ray would make a super history teacher. 9/11 was the most touching part of the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip out to see the Statue of Liberty. The boat was clean and there was plenty of space to enjoy the views. Bonus that it had a bar…nothing better than a glass of wine and the wonderful sites of NYC.

When to Get There

Summertime crowds can be intense, so the earlier you arrive at Battery Park for the first few departing ferries, the better. Booking priority-access tickets in advance is a helpful way to maximize your time. The first ferry to Liberty Island typically departs at 9:30am and the last departs at 3:30pm, with extended hours in summer and around the holidays.
