What you'll do

First, we'll meet in the historic Castle Clinton- a military installation built for the War of 1812. Then the tour will go to the Statue of Liberty where we have the privilege of going inside, through the museum, (SUBJECT TO COVID RESTRICTIONS, NOT CURRENTLY OPEN: and then all the way up her pedestal to the observation deck), home to some of the most beautiful and certainly fullest view, including Jersey City, Manhattan Skyline, Freedom Tower, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, just to name a few. The boat then heads to Ellis Island where you can get chills from walking the same steps as 12 million immigrants did nearly a century ago. This part will be with National Park Ranger Guided tours, and movies are offered for free every 30 mins!
Other things to note
REACH OUT IF THE DATE YOU WANT IS BOOKED! We take care of everything. All you need to do is show up. With that said, Castle Clinton is a little hard to find so give yourself wiggle room!

Through high school, I worked at the ferry company for Liberty and Ellis Island, just like my mother and all of her siblings and cousins, and just like all of their parents. The difference? I chose to stay. But not working at the ferry company. I wanted to give amazing tour experiences because it felt like I knew everything possible about the Statue and Ellis. Not just the history, but even how the islands work today and how to make the most of your time here. And so I decided to share it with the masses. Your guide could also be one of my friends that have spent a ton of time with the Lady in the harbor like Chris and Kaylin.

Where you'll be

The inside of the Statue is very limited and often sold out for weeks, but our tours always get inside! We will see the original torch of the Statue of Liberty and then when we go to the top of the pedestal, there is a spot where you can look up and see all of the inside of Lady Liberty!

We waren met een collega van Jerry, Terry. Hij was heel vriendelijk en wist heel veel te vertellen over de geschiedenis en ontstaan van Liberty Statue. We zijn blij dat we deze trip hebben geboekt. Het is een echte aanrader.

For first timers to the Statue of Liberty cant ask for a better experience. Its nice not to have to pay attention to the details so that you can enjoy the experience. The guide narrated the history so that we didn’t need to read all of the plaques. And he knew the routine so we avoided a lot of the pitfalls other tourists had to deal with. Plus he was very friendly

Loved the tour and Jackie did a great job. She was patient and new how to maneuver thru crowds. There were 9 of us and we all really enjoyed it. Even with dreary weather, it was a very nice day and learned a lot from Jackie’s knowledge of the Statue of Liberty. She was also very patient.

The experience was grewt we got to learn about the history of New York and the statue, he was very knowledgeable and he was open to any questions everytime.really reccomend this experience with Jerry or Terry.

If you want a great experience of the Statue or Liberty and a huge understanding of the background then I recommend this guide. I learned so much about how it was made and how it got to wear it is. Along with what it actually meant. 10/10

Had a great time with Terry (Jerry’s partner). Terry was a very informative guide. He had a lot of information and very personable. Had a great time, would recommend!
