Better to get ferry tickets only.

The group was too big and there was so much noise that we could not hear the tour guide. Much better off just to buy a ticket for the ferry only and then use a P headsets to tour the Statue of Liberty. Because we took a tour with this company, there was no time to actually go into the Statue of Liberty.

When we got on the boat and headed for thy statue of liberty as we got closer it made me thankful I live in the USA. Standing next to the statue also gave me goosebumps. I give our tour guide a 5 star rating.

Jim was great! He was so knowledgeable and funny! My daughter and I had a private tour after the other couple left the tour because they didn't want to adhere to the rule for wearing a mask, which had been clearly told to all of us and was on the website. Jim handled it so professionally. He also told us which side of the boat to be on for the best pictures and took pictures of us that were great. Highly recommend Jim and this tour!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Statue of Liberty and history of battery park. My two teens were excited to finally see the Statue of Liberty up close.
