Two of the most visited sites in New York City are the Statue of
Liberty and Ground Zero, the site of the former World Trade Center
Twin Towers. However most visitors are unaware that only a limited
few are allowed inside the Statue of Liberty - reservations are
necessary and difficult to obtain. This exclusive NYCVP walking and
sightseeing tour not only gets you inside Lady Liberty, but it also
provides an in-depth visit to the scene of tragedy and heroism at
Ground Zero where you can view the former site of the World Trade
The Statue of Liberty is
more than a monument - she is a beloved friend, and a living
symbol of freedom to the world. Ellis Island is the historic
gateway to America, where millions of immigrants passed through
between 1892 and 1955. No trip to New York City is complete
without visiting the Statue of Liberty and the Ellis Island
Immigration Museum. The absolute easiest way for you to visit
Lady Liberty, the most popular tourist attraction in New York,
is on this escorted and guided tour departing from a convenient
midtown Manhattan location.
This educational tour is
hosted and escorted by an experienced, licensed New York City
tour guide who will negotiate you through the masses, turmoil
and confusion. Our guide will escort you on the subway. You'll
