Our tour will start with a visit to Lady Liberty and Ellis Island.
Your ticket includes access to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, access to the grounds of Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Audio Tours of Liberty and Ellis Island included.
The Statue of Liberty is a universal symbol for freedom given to the United States on October 28, 1886
as a gift from the people of France.
The statue was designed by Frederick Bartholdi, a French sculptor, and framed by Gustave Eiffel,
the same gentleman who designed the Eiffel Tower.
Today, the statue is visited by millions of people a year and
continues to remain an icon for freedom as well as a welcoming symbol to immigrants arriving to America.
Ellis Island, also known as the ‘Island of Hope and Tears’, was the largest gateway for millions of immigrants
looking for a new beginning and a new life for their families in America.
Ellis Island was once America’s busiest immigration station that operated for over 62 years (1892 until 1954) and
saw millions of people from around the world.
