What to expect

The day begins with a 30-minute guided tour in English of Battery Park, a historic green space located at the southern tip of Manhattan. Here you'll learn about the park and its monuments from a local guide before arriving at Castle Clinton. Your guide will then assist you through the boarding process for the ferry to Liberty Island. Cross New York Harbor and arrive at the iconic Statue of Liberty, where your ticket grants access to the pedestal and Pedestal Museum.

Gain exclusive access to the monument up to the Fort Wood section for a truly immersive experience on your own. Enjoy a self-guided audio tour as you explore the grounds before heading to Ellis Island to learn about the immigrant experience at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Here you'll pick up your audio guide on arrival and take a journey through history.

*An upgrade to a fully-escorted tour in English will be available at check-out. This option also includes a guided tour of the 9/11 Memorial once you have returned to Manhattan from Ellis Island.
