I highly recommend the cruise. It takes you around and you see Ellis Island, the Brooklyn bridge, maritime museum old ships at the dock and off course the Statue of Liberty and many other site on the route. the commentary is great and comical by the cruise director. Don't forget to take your camera for some great shots. A video... More

This is a relly iconic place. The front door to New York for sure. one of the "must see" when you come to NY. It takes at least 2 or 3 hours to go there and come back at least. Only one company can take you there by boat and you can take 3 type of tickets. Go to the... More

An absolute must-do if you are in New York City, even just for a day. As pretty much everyone else mentions you need to book 3-6 months in advance if you want crown access. I was about 2 months out and had no trouble getting pedestal access, which is still worth it in my opinion. Be prepared to arrive around... More

Great. A slight delay due to a upgraded terror alert but our guide Tony was awesome and the day was perfect.

This is a very important site of US history and especially New York city. It is certainly worthwhile to visit even if you do not get to go up to the crown. There are tours every hours with a guide giving you the most important details related to the site. This was my second time to the liberty island and... More

We all enjoyed our visit, overall. The navigation through the handheld audio tour (lack of overall index) leaves much to be desired. Could be more user friendly. Rationale for second security check at the statue could not be articulated by the Rangers and their arbitrary selection for bags that needed to be stowed in the lockers ($2 for 1h...) was... More

A must see when in NYC . Smaller that it looks in movies . Need to book 3 months in advance if you want crown access on top . Can also be seen for free , sailing quite close using the Statin Island ferry .

I cannot imaging having come to NY and not making a trip out to the Statue of Liberty. I didn't have tickets to climb to the crown but was still worth the visit. The ticket included an audio that provided a lot of great information.
