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. From there, enjoy great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. You can also secure tickets to the crown but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight, while 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.

Statue of Liberty 60-Minute Sightseeing Cruise
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip out to see the Statue of Liberty. The boat was clean and there was plenty of space to enjoy the views. Bonus that it had a bar…nothing better than a glass of wine and the wonderful sites of NYC.

We were very surprised how much we didn't know about the Statue of Liberty. Only issue was "early access" does not exist. We stood in line a long time. But the tour was worth it and fun. Great job!

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour
Although I have visited the Statue of Liberty as a young child visiting again with a tour guide as an adult was able to get more history and knowledge. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny which made the experience great. He even asked the group if he wanted our picture taken at the best view of the statue.

Private Statue of Liberty Sailing Tour
The Manhattan skyline is breathtaking and can only be truly appreciated while sailing along the shore! What a great, easy way to see the Statue of Liberty up close. And No crowds! Captain Martin was a gracious host and loves storytelling NY’s history. I highly recommend this excursion for locals and out of town guests.

When to Get There

Summertime crowds can be 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 typically departs at 9:30am and the last departs at 3:30pm, with extended hours in summer and around the holidays.
