Our guide, Victoria was so knowledgeable and friendly. She moved us with ease through the Statue of Liberty tour and then onto Ellis Island giving us history and current information along the way. She was also a great resource for local Manhattan tips. Great guide

We received an excellent tour from Joel on Friday, October 11, 2019. He is knowledgeable as well as entertaining. He took time to answer all our questions and made sure we received all of the information that the tour provided - without rushing us. We had just the right amount of time at the Statue of Liberty, seeing the museum as well. And, we feel we had just the right amount of time at Ellis Island too. We appreciated him and felt he gave us the attention to detail that we expected from a "private tour". Thank you.
