What To Expect
Go directly to Battery Park in Lower Manhattan where your guide provides you with your early access ticket to Liberty Island. Go to the VIP express reserve line for the Statue of Liberty ferry and beat the crowds at the Statue of Liberty and Pedestal Museum. Your guide shares informative commentary as you explore the grounds of the Statue of Liberty and visit the Pedestal if you have selected the upgrade option.
After completing your tour of Liberty Island, your guide takes you to the Ellis Island Ferry and the Ellis Island Museum. In 1892, Ellis Island opened as a federal immigration station and operated for more than six decades until 1954. It is estimated that at least 40% of all current American citizens can trace one or more ancestors to Ellis Island. Have time on your own to see the museum and perhaps find your family members in the registers.
Return by ferry to Battery Park where your guide shows you highlights in the area such as the 9/11 Memorial (National September 11 Memorial). Return to Midtown Manhattan on the Statue of Liberty Express bus to end your tour.
