A essência da América. Adorei o tour, excelente para conhecer melhor parte da história dos Estados Unidos. Muito bem organizado, com audiobooks em várias línguas. Vista fabulosa sobre Manhattan! Se voltar a NY vou repetir este tour!

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS TO GO ONTO THE PLATFORM, these tickets do not include it and by the time we got there they did not have tickets. Otherwise everything else was way more than expected, such a great experience.

Great trip, very educational on how the statute was built and transported to th US. Ellis Island again was fantastic, a place where dreams were made or lost.
