Full description
Spend the day visiting New York City’s most iconic landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. See St. Patrick's Cathedral and check out the wonderful views of New York as you travel by City Bus and Subway. Expert narration as we visit the Statue of Liberty, 911 Memorial, Little Italy, Times Square, , and more.   In this experience, the group will visit Little Italy for a pastry snack. Continue your tour over to the Wall Street area, where you can check out Trinity Church, Federal Hall, and the Charging Bull statue, an enduring symbol of optimism and prosperity.   The second highlight of your tour will be a visit to the Statue of Liberty, which you’ll access by taking the ferry to Liberty Island. Access the pedestal portion of the statue, where you can get panoramic views of Ellis Island, New Jersey, and New York. Visit the new museum on Liberty Island, which chronicles the development and creation of this symbol of freedom.   Your tour will visit the somber 9/11 Memorial, located at the former location of the Twin Towers. Afterwards, you’ll be dropped off at Times Square to continue your exploration of the city in this exciting square.
