Unfortunately I was not able to make the journey to a NYC as my flights were cancelled etc. If I’d made the journey I’m sure I would have enjoyed the experience.

GUIDED TOUR WELL WORTH CHOOSING

We paid the extra for a guided tour which made the experience so much more fulfilling and entertaining. Our guide was incredibly attentive and educational. Even the gentleman inside Lady Liberty was cheerfully enthusiastic about pointing out the inside structure and how progressive it was for it's time. All and all, a memorable experience!

I highly recommend this tour for only €19.25. It includes a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty and the ferries run every 25 minutes once you arrive to then grab a ferry to Ellis island. When you visit both attractions you get a free audio tour. Both of these attractions were so educational and interesting. I highly recommend it.

Magical experience to view a spectacular figure of American history and appreciate the true meaning of lady liberty. Our tour guide Cody was amazing with an exceptional knowledge of the history of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island above and beyond what I had ever expected. This is a tour that cannot be missed when visiting New York City.

The Statue of Liberty tour did not disappoint. There was a two hour wait but well worth it. Get there early to allow plenty of time at the site.

Not up to scratch!

The tickets were not delivered to my e-mail account as was stated in an previous e-mail message. When we arrived at the site, there was no one there and other people could not assist us. In the end, we were not able to take a trip to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. Also, we were not able to receive a refund even though we would not be returning to NY within the period to reuse the tickets. This feels a little like a scam to relieve tourists of their money and give nothing in return.

The sheer number of amazing photo oportunities on Liberty island is overwhelming! My only regret is that I went a bit late in the afternoon and there was no boat to Elis Island anymore. I wish this was made clear when booking the ticket.
