Another must-see when visiting NYC! And why not, it's the Statue of Liberty!!! The whole experience of riding out on the boat and the views of the harbor not to mention Lady Liberty. It is pretty phenomenal. Make sure to purchase the tickets that will get you inside of the structure. Otherwise you'll only get to walk the exterior, which... More

We booked and reserved a time in advance which is a must. Our queue was about a third of the length of the unreserved queue, and we queued for 45 minutes. There is airport style security too before you get on the boat and again before you go into the Statue of Liberty. Great views from the boat of the... More

Obviously the SoL is iconic and we've all seen it on TV and the movies. The boat trip from Battery Park is the only real way to see it up close but - and I know this is heresy - it's actually a bit boring (especially for children). Bit like seeing the Mona Lisa for the first time - the... More

It's a must see attraction when you are in NYC. You take a ferry to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Great to learn about the History about both places. Make sure you book the crown tour well in advance as they sell out quickly.

after walking up quite a number of steps. I was able to get up there but not recommended for those with breathing problems or trouble with knees or walking a lot. it is a bit difficult to get up there. if you do make the climb , once at the pedestal the views are awesome. the ferry boat there are...

Terrible service, don't buy tickets on the street. They said 15 minutes to go back on the free shuttle; instead they offer paid transportation, encourage and prioritize that people pay extra to return at $10.00 per person the cheapest. They leave you there waiting in line with out any of their employees around and insist on the tip. The sound... More

We made the huge mistake of buying this tour right outside the exit of the subway at South Ferry and what a rip off. Please do not take it. You are much better off paying whatever the "normal" Statue of Liberty tours cost. You will have a muh better service and you will not be stuck with this garbage of... More

Loved the tour and got to hear lots of amazing things. Had to put bag in a locker which was quite small and then had trouble opening it back up. Don't be late as the locker will auto open and your goods could be taken!@ A definite must. Get your photos from the island if you walk round the other... More
