Come explore this New York icon. Expert guides will meet you at Castle Clinton, a historic fort in Battery Park and a onetime possible site for the statue itself. From there you'll board a ferry carrying you to Liberty Island, your first stop of the day. Your reservation includes a guided tour of Liberty Island with an expert English-speaking guide and access to the Pedestal Museum at Liberty Island with Statue of Liberty tickets.
'I lift my lamp beside the golden door!' These unforgettable words are inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. For millions of future Americans, her torch was the first thing they saw on their arrival to this new country. She stands proudly in New York Harbor, lighting the way to better life for so many people.
Meet your guide at Battery Park in midday. Start the tour by examining the collection housed inside the Pedestal Museum, from the original bones of the statue to one of the first flames of her torch. Then make the climb to the top of the pedestal and enjoy unparalleled views of the NYC skyline at her feet. Explore the island on your own, or grab a quick bite before rejoining your guide. If time permits, the tour will also visit Ellis Island.
Important: 'The wait times at the ferry and security lines during'the afternoon tour is much longer.
