Tour Details
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 Center.

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 have Priority Timed Access to enter the Liberty Island Ferry security. On Liberty Island you'll receive a special Monument Access Pass that gets you into the Statue of Liberty - the only way that you can actually get inside the Statue!

The price includes ferry and subway fares, special Monument Access Pass, advance reserved security entry time, and the services of an officially licensed New York City tour guide.
