Myself and my husband decided to do the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour with the wonderful Alex Parrish. It did not disappoint. We learned so much on the tour and Alex is very knowledgeable and informative. I was so glad we got all the facts as it just made the whole experience super special and we have an even greater respect for The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Highly recommend Alex as a tour guide, you will learn so much!

Emma was incredible!

Emma was our guide. She was very well informed of the history of the Statue and Ellis Island Immigration Center. She also added her own Italian family immigration experience through Ellis Island that made for a very personal insight. She was delightful and gave great tips on where to be to get the best ferry views and picture taking opportunities. Highly recommend her! Plus she was humorous and fun! Great experience.
The tour overall was very organized, professional and directions were clear. I highly recommend this tour company.
