The tour was great. Amazing security, but very efficient. We were impressed with how friendly and efficient all the staff were. We got our tickets online, which was a breeze. This made it faster when we arrived. The cruise makes it easy to stay as long as you want to see the grounds and if you want to do the... More

Booked a mid morning ticket with City Cruises, got straight on the boat. Statue of Liberty was awesome, nice to be so close after seeing her so many times on TV. Back packs and large bags are not allowed in the Statue itself but there are secure lockers to leave your bags in. Great views across the bay to the... More

We nearly didn't make this trip due to a medical emergency on the subway during our journey there, which probably made the trip even better when we finally experienced it! At 10am the crowds weren't bad at all, going straight through security, and the boat trip on and off was run quickly and efficiently. The boat gave fantastic views of... More

Hated the long queue to board the ferry to the island although it was great for people watching and we were entertained by a couple of fly by's by airforce jets in formation in preparation for Memorial Day celebrations. Ferry trip fine, island well organised and audio tour great for history, construction and viewing of this majestic symbol of freedom.

This was a great trip - take the tour to the crown, worth the extra money and walk up the stairs. The explanation of the departure time for the tickets can be confusing. There is a lot of security. The only problem was the boat really rocks when waiting to exist - not just a little bit but lots and... More

This was my first trip to the Statue of Liberty and it did not disappoint! We came into the park on the New Jersey side. The views of New York City and the Statue of Liberty are incredible. We were so fortunate to visit on a crystal clear day. The boat rides are fun and give you different views of... More

stunning,if you want to enter the top of the statue(the crown) be advised you may want to book your tickets on line a couple of months in advance on line, as we did,these cost around 13.00 pounds per ticket,

This is my first time visiting the Statue of Liberty. It's an amazing sight. We visited the ground floor. We look a ferry from Ellis Island to Liberty Island. Very crowded, but managed well. Warning: Motion sickness. Come prepared. Note: Ferry runs ever 40 minutes.

This was highlight of our holiday. It is best to pre book if you want to go up to the crown as the numbers are limited.although there are a lot of steps the views are worth the climb.
