“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Brings tears to your eyes. Also seeing Ellis Island right next door is a thrill, especially if you have grandparents, etc. who landed there. Very emotional for me, as my grandparents came there from Italy.

“Fabulous !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

During the helicopter Manhattan flight we passed this world famous statue. The lady herself is not so high as seen from the air. We decided to take the boat to Ellis Island and in the later afternoon to THE Statue.
It was a rainy day which was profitable a there were not many visitors. The inside of the statue is amazing. The rather small iron stairs are not OK for elderly people. The upper window in the crown is rather small, (see pic). The view is marvelous. We suddenly had to hurry as the last boat
back was at 17.30 hours. So watch your watch !

“Crown Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Highlight of our trip to NYC. If you can find availability then add it to your trip to Liberty Island.

Unsure whether we just picked a good day and time to go but there were no queues on the day (Beginning August) except the wait to get on the next boat to arrive.

The climb up the very tight stairs to get into the crown was great fun (though I could see it being daunting for some) but the fact that the stairs are fitted in a helix fashion means you don’t have the problem of passing people heading in the opposite direction.

It’s certainly a lot smaller up in the crown than it looks from the bottom but so worthwhile making the effort to do it.

Fantastic experience and already want to go again!

“DO NOT BOOK THROUGH statueoflibertytickets.com”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

I was just looking forward to taking my 11-year-old to see the Statue of Liberty for the first time, and I mistakenly ordered tickets from the first company that came up on the search engine...statueoflibertytickets.com
They are fraudulent company that charges an extra $7 per ticket, but doesn't tell you that until the purchase is over. No refunds.
