We enjoyed our trip and booked reservations to the pedestal, not the crown, which was already booked. If not for the fog and clouds, I would have gotten some nice photos, but everything was gray. Still worth the trip.

Having taken the downtown loop of the Open Top bus, it was not that early when we queued for tickets to the Statue of Liberty. We then had to pass through airport style x-ray machines which was fine - better to be safe! Finally, we boarded the boat and set sail. Once on the island, we had lunch - mostly... More

We really enjoyed the experience. We were a little bit disappointed with the crown part. It is a lot of stair climbing for a view out of a tiny little glass window, surrounded by people trying to make enough space to take photos.

We booked the statue of liberty and Crown tour which we would thoroughly recomend. To actually climb right up to the Crown and look out was amazing the views back toward the Manhatton skyline and Brooklyn are well worth the climb up the spiral stair case.We booked this visit back in June when the tickets were first on sale as...

Definitely worth going. Climbed to the base of the statue. Worth the experience. Can only buy tickets to climb the statue on line. Can't buy it at the location and must be bought in advance, otherwise it sells out quickly.

We had a great time to the Statue of Liberty And Ellis Island. Out group included my wife who had foot surgery 2 weeks ago and father in law who had hip replacement last year. The trip is wonderful. We booked the pedestal ticket and were told we had 20+ steps to climb. In fact, our 2 dueling cane team... More

Now I happened to get crown tickets early but let me tell you, you better be in the best shape of your life and not suffer from any bit of claustrophobia to do that. A very long, narrow, winding stairwell to the top to spend 1 min observing the inside of the crown which isn't much to look at. You... More

Not quite the experience we had hoped for. Stunning views are the plus side. But herding, lining and food was all awful. We had to wait 40 minutes for a ferry across after lining for tickets. (Some people had queued 2 hours for these) It was 45 minutes to get off the island, herded together in the hot sun. We... More

You see it on TV, but seeing it in person is totally different. It was a WOW for us, We only got to go in the pedestal. I guess to go in the crown you have to book months in advance. This is a must see in New York.

A great experience, if your in New York you have to visit Liberty Island just to say you have been. There's not a lot else to do there so just get the next ferry back.
