What you can expect

Discover the majesty of the Statue of Liberty and the history of Ellis Island on this engaging walking tour. With convenient priority boarding on the ferry, enjoy quick access to the Statue of Liberty and take an informative stroll around these historic sites with your expert guide.

Meet your guide at Castle Clinton, a former fort built for the War of 1812, and board a ferry to the Statue of Liberty. As you cruise to Liberty Island, learn about Lady Liberty's history and inspiring meaning to millions of immigrants. Upon disembarking, stroll around the island and admire a remarkable view of the Big Apple's skyline.

If you purchased the Pedestal option, you will climb the Pedestal Monument of the Statue and be able to look inside the Statue and on the Observation deck at the foot of the Statue.

All guests can tour the Statue of Liberty museum to learn about the construction and architecture as well as remarkable stories of the people involved in erecting this symbol of freedom and welcome. After you leave the Statue of Liberty Museum, hop on the ferry to Ellis Island.

Listen to your guide share stories of the more than 12 million immigrants who traveled through Ellis Island, which was busiest between 1892 and 1924. Walk around the historic grounds, explore the Immigration Museum, and, after the guided tour ends, feel free to grab lunch or spend some more time on Ellis Island before heading back to the city on your own.
