Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Sightseeing Program – America’s Symbol of Freedom
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States. It is one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy. The views of the Statue from the water are breathtaking and reminiscent of what immigrants first saw entering New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty is one of the most-visited spots in NYC, but if you’ve never been to New York you probably have many questions like “how far is the Statue of Liberty from Times Square?” or “how much are tickets to the Statue of Liberty?”. Leave the details up to our professionals and experience the best of what NYC has to offer.
Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years. Twelve million people passed through the halls that are now the historical Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Walk through the Great Hall as the new Americans once did – ancestors of more than half of the US population. You can search for your family surname on the American Immigrant wall of Honor. With over 600,000 entries, it is the longest wall of names in the world. So, whether you’re needing ferry tickets (ferry tickets allow you entrance into the Ellis Island Museum) or wanting to experience the fun and exciting Ellis Island hard hat tour, our New York City experts can craft the perfect trip for you.
