Private Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour - Includes Pedestal Access

New York Tour1

What You'll Get


"I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" These unforgettable words are inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. For millions of future Americans, her torch was the first thing they saw on their arrival to this new country. She stands proudly in New York Harbor, lighting the way to better life for so many people.

Come explore this New York icon with us. Our expert guide will meet you at Castle Clinton, a historic fort in Battery Park and a onetime possible site for the statue itself. From there you'll board a Statue Cruises ferry, carrying you to Liberty Island, your first stop of the day.

Examine the collection housed inside the Pedestal Museum, from the original bones of the statue to one of the first flames of her torch. Then make the climb to the top of the pedestal and enjoy unparalleled views of the NYC skyline at her feet. Explore the island on your own, or grab a quick bite before rejoining your guide for the trip to Ellis.

On Ellis Island, you'll visit the Museum of Immigration, housed in the original Immigration Station, beautifully restored after decades of neglect. Hear the arduous and often heartbreaking stories of the millions of immigrants who once walked these halls. Explore the museum collection or search the immigrant archive and discover your own personal history.
