The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were great! But, if you expect to go into the 911 Memorial and Museum on this tour because of wording, they only take you to the Memorial area and leave. This tour does not take you into the Museum or Memorial. Our tour guide was great and shared alot of information that you normally would not know.

Worth your money. Caesar was excellent

Our guide was fun, funny, and had been doing this for a while. You could tell he loves his job and people. He did extra stuff like a great photo of my family in front of statue (i know, sounds like nothing, but he has a special way he did it, it's amazing and is now my Facebook cover). He knew just where to go to eliminate lines, saved a boatload of time. Highly recommend. People ask for him, we just got lucky, but its worth trying to be on his tour.
