I don't know whether it was the silver dining utensils and rather fine looking china used in the dining area by arriving immigrants or the statistics of the very people processed by this rather daunting outpost... but I wasn't expecting to discover what I actually...More

Though we were more keen for Liberty Island, we found this tour very interesting and the setup was done quite well to keep it entertaining. The tour guides were little less colourful but still gave great insights.
