You should make sure that people can explore everything. Meaning in the winter months liberty island closes 4:30 pm, so there shouldn’t be any ferry rides available after 2:30. We couldn’t get to Ellis island and to liberty island due to the closing times and we didn’t have access to audio guides on liberty island because we arrived at 4 pm on the island. I’ve been before in summer, so it wasn’t that hard for me but for my friend who never been to either Ellis island nor liberty island it was a little bit disappointing.

Line starts moving at 9 so get there 20 mins early. Liberty is first, ferry every 30 mins or so. Eat a big breakfast and eat again when you get back to battery park, just grab coffee and a snack on the islands. Well worth the visit this one, don’t miss.

We loved it! Great ride, museums and visit. Recommend going on the first trip of the morning - very long lines later in the day.

It was amazing, really fast using Get Your Guide and I would back with my family!

Good clean boat that comes regularly to each of the islands
