What to expect

Visit Liberty and Ellis Islands, home to the most symbolic landmarks of freedom and justice!

The Statue of Liberty is colossal in size and remains one of the most visited sights in New York City. Board a ferry from Battery Park to Liberty Island, where you'll gaze up and admire Lady Liberty in all her glory. View the original statue bones and even the first flames of Lady Liberty's torch in the new Statue of Liberty Museum. Afterwards, climb to the top of the pedestal and take in stunning views of the Big Apple from her feet.

Hop back on the ferry towards historic Ellis Island, where you can wander the grounds and visit the Museum of Immigration. Listen to moving and often heartbreaking stories of past immigrants. Examine the museum collection, peruse the immigrant archive and even find out your own family history.

With a fast-track ticket, you'll expedite the waiting times and gain entry into the sights much quicker.

To render your NYC visit even more special, choose between a group tour or private tour led by a professional guide.
