The Statue of Liberty attracts large crowds and requires 2 security checks prior to entering the statue’s pedestal. It can be difficult to navigate security and the ferry lines on your own. If you select the 3 Hour Statue of Liberty Only Guided Tour Option, an experienced guide will help you navigate through your visit while they entertain and inform you. Start by meeting your guide outside Battery Park and then take short walk through Battery Park where your guide will point out some of the monuments and memorials along the way. Next, you’ll enjoy priority boarding on the ferry to Liberty Island as you board the ferry through the reserve ticket holders line for Liberty Island. When you arrive there you'll head inside the Statue of Liberty Monument and see the Torch Exhibit, featuring the torch originally held by the Statue when she arrived in 1886. Then you’ll visit the Statue of Liberty Museum with your guide, who will point out important parts of the collection. Ascend to the Statue's Pedestal and step outside for amazing views of the New York City skyline and sweeping 360-degree views of New York Harbor. Your guide will point out interesting sights and tell you about what you are seeing. Then, head back downstairs for a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity with Lady Liberty. At this point the "3 Hour Statue of Liberty Guided Tour" will end but your ticket includes access to Ellis Island. If you choose to visit Ellis Island you can take a self-guided tour. Alternatively, just head back to Manhattan on the next ferry. If you select the 4.5 Hour Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Guided Tour Option, your guide will stay with you as you visit Ellis Island – guiding you around the highlights and providing inside tips and entertaining stories to help make the most of your visit. Learn about the immigrants that made the long, dangerous, and uncertain voyage to America, arriving at what would soon become the most recognizable symbol of immigration in the United States. Walk in the footsteps of the immigrants, beginning from the moment they landed right through the required inspections and examinations, and up to the moment they would learn the outcome of their quest to become Americans. For the ultimate experience select the 4.5 Hour VIP Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Guided Tour Option and receive the use of a personal headset radio with volume control and hear your guide speaking live right in your ear as you enjoy a fully guided tour of both Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
