Wow what an attraction! We visited in January and it was absolutely freezing on the ferry trip to Liberty island, but well worth it. We were blown away by the size of the statue. We spent about 45 minutes here and got our picture taken as a memento. A visit to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty is... More

We visited the Statue of Liberty in November 2014. We chose to get the boat from the Liberty State Park port which proved to be a very good choice as when we passed the boat from Manhattan it was full to the brim with people whereas our boat only had around 20 people on. One negative would be the security... More

We booked in advance to go to the pedestal level. We knew we wanted to go and couldn't wait. The first security check in certainly made you feel secure, our boat trip out wasn't full but I can see how it could easily feel over crowded in more popular seasons. The audio tour is included in your ticket which was... More

We didnt go on a trip to Liberty Island we took the Staten Island Ferry trip to see her. A visit to NYC wouldn't be complete without seeing this icon. For $0 on the ferry we got a pretty good view. A good way to spend an hour and appreciate the Statue.

In order to purchase a ticket for the Crown, you need to order well in advance online. The normal ticket is pricey enough though and a ferry brings visitors over to the island. It is a matter of walking around the perimeter path to see the statue from all angles whilst listening to the optional audio guide. There is a... More

The visit to The Statue of Liberty Completes the New york Visit. Fantastic place good price there are ferries from Bowling Green to the statue. Be ready for airport style security and a wonderful ride. they do provide automated earphones which narrate the tour details and the history of statue. since my visit was at the spur of the moment...

Statue of Liberty was a great visit but the security before you get on the boat and then further security check to get on to the observation pedestal was a bit much

Buy tickets from national park/ statue cruises. I accidentally purchased from what seemed like the main site and got charged about $30 extra for the tickets. Make sure to book online far in advance for crown or pedestal tickets as they sell out quickly. We purchased Crown tickets. It takes ages to get through security to get on ferry, but... More

So no trip to NY would be complete without going to see the statue of liberty. But I was worried about the cost for taking the family - I needn't be. I booked in advance (about a month) and by that stage could only get tickets to the viewing platform and not to the torch - need to book months... More

I purchased our tickets some 6 months ago to include the Crown Tour. I am so glad I did. What an experience! I had reservations as they warn you about the amount of steps you need to climb etc. when buying the tickets and as I am not a small person I was concerned I wouldn't be able to make... More
