Set sail from Manhattan on a ferry to the world-known Statue of Liberty, iconic symbol of New York, and then visit Ellis Island, home to the famous Immigration Museum.
Meet your guide at the scheduled time and head to Pier A in Battery Park. Once you get there, board a ferry that will take you to one of the most emblematic parts of The City That Never Sleeps: Liberty Island. During the journey to the enclave, you will be given an audio guide with interesting pre-recorded commentary in English about the fascinating history of the isle, which has had various functions throughout the years.
Disembark on Liberty Island and get a close look at the emblematic Statue of Liberty. Designated a National Monument, it was given by France in 1886 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence of the United States. After admiring the Statue of Liberty, you will also have time to explore the island.
Once you have enjoyed visiting Liberty Island, hop back on the ferry and head to the nearby Ellis Island.

The tour also includes a walk through the island. Marvel at the stunning views of New York’s skyline and its striking skyscrapers from the island's shores. This is an unmissable part of any trip to the Big Apple.
