Enjoy a seamless visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York Harbor. This tour benefits from early reserve-line access for a round-trip ferry trip, as well as an optional early morning departure time that puts you ahead of many sightseers.

After some people said to miss this place off, we decided to do it anyway. It is an iconic building and we are glad we went. The king Kong section was fun, putting on our best damsel in distress look for photos. All the exhibitions were great and informative. The views amazing.
