Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour Including Pedestal Access, Lower Manhattan Sightseeing and 9/11 Museum Entry

Experience three of New York’s most iconic landmarks—the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and 9/11 Memorial Museum—in one day. A guide provides historical background for each location, and then gives you free time to explore at your own pace. While most tours are nonstop, you get to enjoy a lunch break (own expense) before joining the guide for tailored walking tour of Lower Manhattan and the 9/11 Memorial.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in Battery Park, where your morning skip-the-line ticket gives you priority boarding on the Liberty Island ferry.

At Liberty Island, your guide takes your group on a tailored walking tour of the Statue of Liberty. Take advantage of pedestal access for a birds-eye view. Follow your guide to Ellis Island for another tour, and then explore at your own pace for a few hours before returning to Manhattan by ferry.

While most tours are nonstop, on this tour, enjoy a lunch break (own expense). After lunch, meet your guide in Battery Park for a Lower Manhattan walking tour. Start at St. Paul’s Chapel, and then continue to the 9/11 Memorial.

The tour ends here as you say goodbye to the guide and head into the National September 11 Memorial and Museum with skip-the-line access. Experience the museum at your own pace.

Admission only covers the pedestal, access is also largely by stairs so be aware of this before committing to that level of staircase usage.

Hi. It's about .8 mile or about a15-20 minute walk. I'm disabled so we took Lyft everywhere.

I suppose it's possible but I would be surprised. We took the tour in April and booked it in January.
