I loved every second of the tour, from the boat ride to the coming back ashore. John F was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful. He helped bring the history to life and was able to impart emotion into the storytelling. Seeing the statue and Ellis Island was both breathtaking and moving in equal measure and I wouldn’t have changed anything. A fantastic way to learn the history and see the sights - something I would have missed without John F, our guide.

Alex was an excellent tour guide! He provided an excellent overview of NYC and the Statue of Liberty, while ensuring we knew where to be and when. Small group -so no issues hearing what he had to say.
