Overview

Make landfall on Liberty Island and Ellis Island during a French Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Experience!

Perhaps one of the most photographed monuments in the world, the Statue of Liberty is easily recognized by just about everyone. The 305-foot tall monument is an imposing sight to behold as you enter the New York Harbor. A gift from the people of France to the newly formed country of America, the Statue of Liberty is a symbolic gesture of shared values and ideologies. Once a beacon for weary travellers coming to the shores of America, the Statue of Liberty is now among the most popular New York attractions. And, as a nod to the generosity of France, you can now enjoy an exclusive tour of Liberty Island with a French-speaking tour guide.

Then, a short ferry ride from Liberty Island will take you to Ellis Island. This island played a very important role in the history of American immigration. Functioning as a federal immigration station in the 19th and 20th centuries, Ellis Island processed more than 12 million migrants into America! Learn from your guide how the immigration processes were carried out. And, see where one of your ancestors likely entered the country. About 40% of Americans today can trace their lineage to a relative who passed through Ellis Island! So, there’s a good chance you can too! If you’re looking for a tour of the Big Apple in French, then this tour is what to do in New York!
