This tour was an extremely positive experience!. From the moment we left Battery Park, we were presented with the beautiful skyline of Manhattan. Liberty Island and Ellis Island were beautiful! The views were breathtaking and learning the history was exciting. More importantly, our guide, Emmeline, made this such a fun and extraordinary experience. She was extremely knowledgeable and such a lovely person. We truly enjoyed her company!! I definitely recommended this tour!
