Traveler Tips

  • "The lines to board the cruise and go through security were long and I would recommend bringing an umbrella for shade in the heat or for cover in the rain." See review

Worth the extra

We were booking late and wanted pedestal tickets, but couldn’t go through the normal venue. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of information that was provided during the guided tour. Mike did a great job of setting our expectations at each step and making the visit a memorable one.

SO FUN AND INFORMATIVE .... we all enjoyed the day beyond! our tour guide Jim made the day -- Please tip your guide as without them it would not be as informative - if you have an older person use the elevator and don't go to the crown --it would be too much on them - We were a group of 6 - everything was on time and so fun... we chose not to go to ellis island and went to the dead rabbit after the ferry -- go there - you will love the experience!

The sites were in great condition. I went over 10 years ago and I love the updates to the museum and how many more artifacts were added.
