You’ll meet your tour guide at Castle Clinton in Battery Park to begin your excursion. Castle Clinton, a historic fort that was once considered as a potential location for the Statue of Liberty, is a landmark in and of itself.
After that, everyone boards a ferry for Liberty Island. You will be provided with an early reserve-line access ticket so you may escape the lines. You can learn about the Statue of Liberty’s past and how attitudes about it have evolved through time as you go there.
Your tour guide will give you a tour of Liberty Island once you arrive there and provide further information regarding the exhibits inside the Statue of Liberty Museum. You will have time to explore the museum after the portion of your tour that is led. It’s very cool; it includes elements of the statue’s original structure as well as “flames” from Lady Liberty’s torch.
If there is time in your itinerary, you can go visit Ellis Island on your own before going back to Battery Park. The Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration is situated on the island and was formerly housed in the immigration complex where so many immigrants arrived in America for the first time.

What duration is the tour?
The tour’s guided segment lasts for around two hours. After the trip concludes at Liberty Island, you are free to stay there as long as you like before heading back to Battery Park. The whole process should take around 3 hours, but if you want to see Ellis Island on your own, give yourself an extra hour. This trip includes your ferry ticket back to Manhattan.
What can we bring?
Before boarding the ferry, prepare for security checks. Both people and things are open to search. Weapons, locking blades, tools, tripods, non-folding umbrellas, laptops, tablet keyboards, coolers, bags, drones, sewing kits, lighter fluid, and anything that uses an aerosol propellant are all prohibited items.
Does this include admission to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum or the Statue of Liberty Museum?
The Statue of Liberty Museum is off-limits to guides, according to the National Park Service. The museum will be thoroughly explained to you by your guide so that you may tour it on your own and know what to look for. Ellis Island, where the immigration museum is located, is not included in the guided segment of this tour because it is an express journey, but you are welcome to visit on your own. We suggest taking our Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Guided Tour if you’d like to see Ellis Island with one of our tour guides.

We are aware that plans can change. For this tour, we provide a full refund up to 24 hours before the start time.

Please be aware that if you have already rescheduled your tour, there are no refunds available.
