Chris T. Is an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our group was large but with him you have the feeling that he's only talking to you. He's voice is loud but not annoying. He also kinda answers questions you have without asking. Price is good.

Our tour guide Tim provided so many details about both the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. I shared with him that the trip we were on was our Christmas gift to my 85 year old mother-in-law. As soon as I told him that he spent several minutes just conversing with her. She was absolutely thrilled as was I.

Disappointing...

We basically paid over twice face value for a 30 minute tour. The tour was good, no complaints there. The listing promised that we were guaranteed to skip lines - the only line was for security and we most definitely did not skip it. Total rip off.
