Liberty Island, New York City, New York, 10004

The Basics

Statue of Liberty tours start with a scenic ferry ride to the island, where you can explore the grounds or head to the famed 10-story-high observation pedestal to see the original torch. From there, enjoy great views and photo ops of the New York City skyline and neighboring New Jersey. You can also secure tickets to the crown but be prepared to climb 354 steeply winding steps to the top.

Guided tours feature live narration and historical insight, while informative audio tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. The monument is also a highlight on New York Harbor cruises, city helicopter tours, and waterfront walking tours.

Great experience, would highly recommend!
I went on this tour with a friend who was visiting out of town. We both loved it! Our guide, Jim, was super knowledgeable and very friendly. He also had a great sense of humor which made his stories about what we were seeing more interesting. I would highly recommend this tour and Jim as guide!

Statue of Liberty and the Ferry Ride. Although the tour guide was extremely nice and just full of knowledge, I think the talk time could be decreased to allow people to enjoy the attractions

Our tour guide James was personable and full of fascinating information. He provided us an extensive series of historic facts and stories about the Statue of LIberty and Ellis Island that made the places come alive. We felt fortunate that we had him all to ourselves in a private tour. He is a treasure.

When to Get There

Summertime crowds can be intense, so the earlier you arrive at Battery Park for the first few departing ferries, the better. Booking priority-access tickets in advance is a helpful way to maximize your time. The first ferry to Liberty Island typically departs at 9:30am and the last departs at 3:30pm, with extended hours in summer and around the holidays.
