What people are saying about Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration

Jeff was great and gave us loads of insight as well as his own personal stories. One thing to note is that even though it takes 4 hours this is just the talking part and you need to include extra time in your schedule to explore Ellis island museum… we didn’t realise and had booked another tour in Manhattan fairly soon after so had to leave pretty quick but overall was a great experience.

The booking process was straight forward and I had no difficulties finding the location. Our guide Alex was quite friendly and knowledgable. Overall a great experience.

James was awesome. He gave us an excellent time and informed in details all important data concerned the history of statue and the island

Made all the more enjoyable by a really good tour guide, Owen Thompson, who provided excellent background information.

Nice morning trip to Statu of Liberty and Ellis Island.
