Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour Including Pedestal Access, Lower Manhattan Sightseeing and One World Observatory

Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island by ferry on a tour that allots time for you to explore at your own pace. After you recharge during lunch (own expense), enjoy a guided walking tour of Lower Manhattan, including a stop in front of the 9/11 Memorial. This tour ends with guaranteed, skip-the-line entry to the popular One World Observatory.

What to Expect

Meet your guide bright and early in Battery Park. At the pier, enjoy priority access to the Liberty Island ferry. As you sail across the Hudson, enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline.

Arrive at Liberty Island, where you learn about Lady Liberty’s construction and climb the pedestal for views of Manhattan. After a guided tour of Ellis Island, enjoy a few hours to explore on your own.

Will most tours are nonstop, you are able to relax and recharge on your own for lunch (own expense). Then, meet up with your guide and begin a walking tour of Lower Manhattan with a stop in front of the 9/11 Memorial.

Say goodbye to your guide on arrival at One World Observatory, where your reserved ticket allows you to skip the often long lines for entry. Spend as much time as you like taking in 360-degree views of the city from the 102nd floor.
