Short boat trip - caught first boat across and first people up which was fantastic no over crowding. Museum great. If wanting to go to the crown must book 4 months in advance

Viewed the Statue of Liberty or "The Big Lady" as we call her! from a boat that went round the island. Was a spectacular thing to see & would highly recommend.

It was a bit on the more expensive side, but worth it! So cool to visit Ellis island and the Statue of Liberty! But I went in the freezing weather and it was rough! Try in summertime!

Very interesting historically to picture arriving to Ellis Island as an immigrant and everything they went through to enter the US. Statue of Liberty was very impressive.

No chance. If you only have 3 hours in NYC there is a cruise around the statue that you can book but this is all you will be able to do. I would spend your time in the city - plenty to see - maybe a bus tour ?
