What people are saying about New Jersey

Tour meetup point was as described on tickets. Boats depart regularly so even if there seems like a long line, you won't wait too long. Statue of Liberty is magnificent and well worth a visit to see up close. Ellis Island is a very poignant place - Isle of Hope Isle of Tears, says it all. Great day. Recommend a 1 mile walk to the Irish Hunger Memorial on the waterfront in Battery Pk city. It's unlike any other memorial you'll visit in NYC.

We enjoyed our trip, especially since it was a beautiful day. The museum was quite interesting and shed much light on the history of the statue. We didn’t get tickets to climb to the pedestal but in retrospect, I wish we had.

You should plan on a full day to see all that is there. Ellis Island has many exhibits that take time. The audio device really is good in that you gain much more information than just reading the information on each display.

Must do when visiting New York. Not just for visiting the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island, but also for the iconic skyline view of Manhattan.

Great service, Clear instructions and easy check-in
