Full description
On this tour you’ll visit two of the most iconic places in New York - the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Together a national monument, the importance of these historic places stretches beyond the five boroughs and throughout the whole country. Over the next few hours you’ll explore how and why the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were built, and how they have come to be so significant in the story of America. First, you’ll talk about the history of New York Harbor and its many islands, from its earliest European settlers to today. Then, take the ferry to Liberty Island to see the most famous woman in New York, Lady Liberty, and discover how she came to be, both physically and as a fixture in the American narrative. After taking in some incredible views of the Manhattan skyline, hop back on the ferry to your final stop - Ellis Island. Here, explore the role of immigration in New York City and American history, and imagine what it would have been like to arrive at Ellis Island after leaving everything behind to start a new life in America.  When reserving your ticket, you will also receive a roundtrip ferry ticket with a visit to both Ellis island and Liberty Island.
