A must see, it's as grand as you would imagine. We viewed Lady Liberty by boat and it was beautiful to see the way it seems to reach out over the city.

Access inside statue must be booked months in advance. Traveled to Liberty Island and Ellis Island with family. Would recommend buying tickets through national park service at The Clinton Center. Private companies cost more and you can't tour either island. Be prepared for a lot of direct sun exposure- hats and sunscreen a must. Ferry loading like herding cattle -... More

2 adults, 9 and 14 year old. ABSOLUTELY a must. No trip to NY is complete without this. Read the reviews of how LONG this will take but I tell you: online booking, organised lines, professional security staff : very smooth. Short boat trip: Ellis and Liberty Islands. The statue itself is exceptional. We booked late (as in not many... More

The cruise to see Lady Liberty is a must. If you are an immigrant like me you are gonna get emotional at some point especially when "I am proud to be an American" starts playing. Standing tall with the torch, Liberty represents all of us !

I guess the only real debate about this attraction would be do you get up close and personal, or do you see it from afar, without the time and expense? As a family we choose to see this attraction by going on the Staten Island Ferry and it worked for us! When I first visited NYC it was pre-911 and... More

How can you not be humbled when you think of what this sight meant to so many who came to this country. She was and still is a symbol of all the possibilities available in this great country. If you are lucky enough to get into the pedestal or above do it . It will give a whole new perspective... More

Enjoyed it enjoyed enjoyed it. This was one of our most amazing trip which one should never miss when visiting New York. We went on two trips using our New York passes, reasonably priced. The crew was so welcoming and gave a detailed tour of the history of NYC and the American significance of the city and Statue of Liberty... More

Must stop location for NY visit. Ellis island is interesting. And wall trade center is within walking distance. So should make this for a minimum of half day to a day. Get a city pass or combine package to save some time for lining up at ticket booth,

We had a group of 8 including 4'kids. We took the ferry from Liberty State Park. We arrived at the same time a big storm came through - but we waited until it stopped and then walked around Lady Liberty. I think the storm thinned out the crowd so we had great photo opps. My grandson says don't put money... More
