Important to go on site and realise the size and majesty of this statue. Comprehend the amount of research, work and craftsmanship necessary for such a building. Amd also the genuine efforst from both US and French governments as well as private donors to find the place, make the statue, ship it, install it. The visit is less costly than... More

A really enjoyable and interesting trip,I was surprised how small the Statue of Liberty was,but no less spectacular, for some reason I imagined her to be much larger. worth a trip.

You can't visit NYC, especially on your first trip, and not take the time to visit this iconic monument. However the long queue to board the ferry may put a lot of people off. We stood in line for well over an hour, on a hot July day, to get on board but it was well worth the wait. Once... More

My family enjoyed Liberty Island. We were not able to go up into the crown but did go into the pedestal and see the museum. Can't go to NYC without seeing the Statue of Liberty!

This was an amazing trip. I have tried to go for three years now. It is always booked. We booked it 4 month ahead this time and got tickets to go to the top of the crown. I am afraid of heights so it was nto easy. There are 357 steps with the last few sections being tiny spiral staircases.... More

Beautiful statue, epitomises new york. Have been on to the island but just as good from one of the many boats available on the Hudson or East river. If you do get off the restaurant is great, they do a really hearty chili style soup n crackers. Buy a foam crown and take a shadow selfie, they look great!

We took an express cruise to see the Statue of Liberty. The sky was perfect and the guide was humorous and knowledgeable. Found out why the copper-based statue is not copper colour but green in colour due to rusting from salty waters. The express cruise only takes an hour leisurely and gets to see the Brooklyn bridge and World Trade... More

I've been to NYC once before and didn't go to the Statue of Liberty. I'm so glad I did this time. The audio tour (included with the ticket) was informative and interesting. The boat ride to the Statue offered fabulous views of Manhattan. Ellis Island is the second stop on the excursion. Also great...get the included audio tour.
