Liberty Island, New York City, New York, 10004

The Basics

Statue of Liberty tours start with a scenic ferry ride to the island, where you can explore the grounds or head to the famed, 10-story-high observation pedestal to see the original torch and gain great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. It's also possible to secure tickets to the crown for an up-close at Lady Liberty, but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight while offering personal attention, and informative audio tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. The monument is also a highlight on New York Harbor cruises, city helicopter tours, and waterfront walking tours.

Our tour guide James was personable and full of fascinating information. He provided us an extensive series of historic facts and stories about the Statue of LIberty and Ellis Island that made the places come alive. We felt fortunate that we had him all to ourselves in a private tour. He is a treasure.

Covid-19 precautions are still in effect on the tour which is great because NY was hit pretty bad compared to other states. The tour was excellent, we met our guide at Battery Park and hopped on the fairy after that. The weather was dreary but not cold at all, the statue views were amazing and Ellis Island was an unforgettable experience! Overall awesome!

When to Get There

Summertime crowds can get intense, so the earlier you arrive at Battery Park for the first few departing ferries, the better. Booking priority-access tickets in advance is a helpful way to maximize your time. The first ferry to Liberty Island departs at 9:30am and the last departs at 3:30pm, with extended hours in summer and around holidays.
