Great - but did not enjoy queuing for the boat

The lady herself was brilliant and everything we had expected. We had pedestal access and I would say this is defiantly worth the extra money, still very good value we felt. We... read more

The lady herself was brilliant and everything we had expected. We had pedestal access and I would say this is defiantly worth the extra money, still very good value we felt. We waited 5 mins for the lift and got up there. It is a small space to move around outside, but some great views. The best bit then was... More

Although I've been lucky enough to see Lady Liberty from the water several times, I always wanted to visit up close and personal. I booked a platform ticket (unfortunately the Crown tickets were already sold out 2 months in advance when I checked) and also joined one of the free park ranger tours--which I highly recommend.

Simply get on the subway ( green line 4 ) at grand central station and get off at the Bowling green ( heading in the direction of Brooklyn bridge ). Walk 5'mins toward the river and pick up the ferry. Definitely take the audio tour and just hang out there. Well worth doing and an amazing piece of US history... More

The trip to the island was great The boat rocks a lot The views are stunning The boat is big and the trip is of an acceptable distance The view is stunning from top deck The island is well organized There are lockers before getting on the pedestal it costs 2dollars But the views from the bottom are good enough

Honestly I always wanted to go to the Statue of Liberty finally I did it even though I didn't go up its an interesting experience the view from the island to Manhattan is amazing also if you don't want to pay for this trip just take the statement island ferry it's free obviously you don't stop in the island.

Quite a morning visiting the Statue of Liberty. You take a ferry over to the island and back. Probably a ten minute boat ride. The Statue itself is huge. We had pedestal access and that gets you up to the top of the stone base. It's really quite impressive and a must visit while in NYC.

We signed up for a Viator tour of both the Statue and Ellis Island and got a great bang for the buck. The tour includes tickets to the ferry, statue, pedestal and museum, ferry to Ellis Island and entry to that museum. And it that is not enough Allie gave us an enthusiastic presentation of important facts about each and... More
