No trip to New York City is complete without visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, though arranging an itinerary to see both in one day can be a hassle. Avoid the stress with this combo tour, where you visit both sights for one low price. Just hop on the ferry as you're whisked to Liberty and Ellis Islands. Highlights include the audio tours, optional guided tour upgrade—and of course—seeing Lady Liberty up close.
