Get tickets and take a tour to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island or even NYC for a once in a lifetime educational adventure.

 

New York City is home to the Statue of Liberty, the magnificent creation of Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi.

Made of wrought iron structural frames and clad in copper plates, the almost 152 foot tall statue is the gift of France to the people of the United States of America and serves as the universal symbol of freedom. The statue at Liberty Island was inaugurated on October 28, 1886 and was designated as a National Monument on October 15, 1924. The Statue is the number one tourist attraction in New York.

Your trip to New York will not be complete without a visit to the famous statue and the Ellis Island immigration museum. A sortie to the famous landmark is only possible if you can enlist with one of the several companies that specialize on Statue of Liberty tours.

Participants on escorted Statue of Liberty tours converge at a convenient midtown Manhattan location. Then the guide will take the adventurers to Battery Park via the subway so they can board the ferry to Liberty Island. While on board the Statue of Liberty ferry, you will be treated to the historical background of the Statue of Liberty, its symbolism, construction and restoration efforts. As you approach the statue from the water you directly gaze at the serene face of Lady Liberty with her soaring torch and seven pointed halos that signifies the seven seas and seven continents.

Upon entry, you will receive a special Monument Pass that gives access to the Statue of Liberty at a pre-reserved time - the only way that you can actually enter and see the inner caverns of the statue. Once in, you can view the inside of the Statue of Liberty through a glass ceiling and you can step out into the monument's observation deck. From there you can grasp the breathtaking panoramic view of New York City skyline and harbor.

Tickets for Statue of Liberty tours also offer the chance to visit Ellis Island. The trip is a learning experience about the immigrant's trials and triumphs as they come in contact with the new world. You'll feel the uncertainty as you walk the way our forefathers did through the entry process. You can actually see the photographs and mementos of this famous journey at the doorway of hope at Ellis Island. You can even trace your ancestor's through the giant database of the American Museum of Family Immigration.

Ellis Island, the historic gateway into the new world, is a genuine American adventure shrouded with mystery and rich with family treasures. You can tour Ellis Island and enjoy the bounties that the Island can offer at your own leisurely pace.

The Statue of Liberty tours end at Ellis Island (of course there is a return trip) and the guide will arrange for the return trip to Battery Park and midtown or they can suggest other places of interest at lower Manhattan.

Statue of Liberty tours lasts approximately 5-1/2 hours and depart from a couple of different locations depending upon the tour company and the kind of tickets you buy.. Guided tours, self-guided tours or completely unguided Statue of Liberty tours are available.
