Get up, close, and personal with the Statue of Liberty and delve into the dramatic past of Ellis Island with this guided tour from New York. Led by an expert guide, learn more about these iconic sites.
The tour begins from Battery Park where you will meet your guide.

Your guide reveals how the Statue of Liberty became a beacon of hope for the millions of immigrants who migrated to the United States of America after its inauguration in 1886.
Enjoy a short ferry cruise to Ellis Island, which served as an immigrant processing station from 1892 until 1924. Follow the footsteps of 12 million immigrants and learn about the strict immigration procedure they went through. Visit the Stairs of Separation and gain insight into the horrors that the immigrants faced once they reached here. Visit the Immigration Museum which houses a large collection of artifacts, photographs, prints, videos, interactive displays, and temporary exhibits.
Your tour ends at the island, after which you may spend time exploring the island on your own or take a ferry back to Battery Park with your guide.
