This was a great NY experience. Get your tickets early to skip the lines. If you want to visit the crown - book 3 months in advance online. Cons: very long ferry lineup & ride. The time on the island by the Statue took us 15-20 minutes, the other hour and a half was spent in lineups to the ferry... More

I was only able to book pedestal tickets to see Lady Liberty since crown tickets were sold out months in advance but had lots of anxiety about it since I've read so many negative comments about the long lines. My tip: take the very first ride over. Our tickets were for the 8am boat and it was over 30minutes later... More

Come on you guys, you have to go there. My first time in NY, I had a ferry going to NJ and passed by only. It was a foggy day so I knew pictures were going to be a disaster, but this time it was summer and it was a sunny day. Gorgeous place and great view. It´s historical -... More

Travelling with my family I pre-booked Crown tickets in March for our visit this month, I actually tried to change the date of our booking in May but by then all of August dates were fully booked so you need to book in advance. We collected our tickets easily at Battery Park before boarding an exceptionally busy ferry. If you... More

Visited New York in 2012 and went on many sight seeing trips... the statue of liberty was amazing, we boarded a ferry and were taken over to liberty island after getting through all of the many checks (which you appreciate is for your own safety) Stayed on the Island for a little while and brought gifts from the shop and...

Despite the lines, it's well worth the visit - mostly if you've always wished to see the Statue of Liberty so close. The landscape from there is also awesome!

We booked well ahead and had Crown tickets. Great view of Manhatten and going the extra 320+ steps gave a better view and the knowledge that we were one of the few people able to do it. But don't forget Ellis Island. We saw the film about it's history before touring the building. I had certainly forgotten what a "make... More

I booked the crown tickets back in March for our August visit. It helps to spread the cost as well as ensure we get to see our"must do's". We had to queue up to collect our tickets, they can only be collected on the day. There is airport style security before you get on the ferry and before you go... More

What a fabulous way to see the Statue of Liberty! We took a cruise, as part of a bus tour package and it was wonderful! Great views of the Statue as well as Brooklyn Bridge and the New York skyline. Much better than queuing for hours to get inside, especially if it's booked up to go to the Crown, (as... More

Awesome experience and the trip up was very manageable. Everything is well orchestrated from the moment you get in line to board the cruise boat until your return trip after the tour. Minimal time waiting in lines and the boats come and go like clock work. The view from the crown is breathtaking and the Rangers up in the crown... More
