Pass By: Ellis Island, New York Harbor, New York City, NY 10017

Take a 30-minute live guided tour in English of Battery Park and guaranteed access to the Statue of Liberty pedestal and Ellis Island. Explore with audio guides or upgrade to a fully-escorted tour of Liberty Island & Ellis Island.

Take a 30-minute guided tour of Battery Park, and learn its unique history with a local guide. Located at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, the park has an interesting history and many monuments.

Learn about the Battery Cannon, Battery Oval, Coast Guard Memorial and Bosque Gardens and Fountain. End at Castle Clinton, built in anticipation of the War of 1812 and the centrepiece of the revitalisation efforts of the park. Your guide will then assist you through the various procedures to board the ferry to Liberty Island. Benefit from priority boarding and save precious time.

Cross New York Harbour to the Statue of Liberty, where your ticket grants access to the pedestal and Pedestal Museum.

Get exclusive access to the monument up to the Fort Wood section for a truly immersive experience on your own. Take a self-guided audio tour with the provided headsets, available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian and Arabic.

Then, cross to Ellis Island to learn about the immigrant experience at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.

Pick up your audio guide on arrival (available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian and Arabic) and explore independently. Journey through the 60-plus years that the facility processed new arrivals at the start of their lives in America.

Alternatively, upgrade to a fully-escorted tour and benefit from the services of an English-speaking guide of Ellis Island and outside of the Statue of Liberty and. This option also includes a guided tour of the 9/11 Memorial once you have returned to Manhattan from Ellis Island.
