What you'll do
First, we'll meet in the historic Castle Clinton- a military installation built for the War of 1812. Then the tour will go to the Statue of Liberty where we have the privilege of going inside, through the pedestal museum, and then all the way up her pedestal to the observation deck, home to some of the most beautiful and certainly fullest view, including Jersey City, Manhattan Skyline, Freedom Tower, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, just to name a few. The boat then heads to Ellis Island where you can get chills from walking the same steps as 12 million immigrants did nearly a century ago. This part will be with National Park Ranger Guided tours, and movies are offered for free every 30 mins!
Through high school, I worked at the ferry company for Liberty and Ellis Island, just like my mother and all of her siblings and cousins, and just like all of their parents. The difference? I chose to stay. But not working at the ferry company. I wanted to give amazing tour experiences because it felt like I knew everything possible about the Statue and Ellis. Not just the history, but even how the islands work today and how to make the most of your time here. And so I decided to share it with the masses. Your guide could also be one of my friends that have spent a ton of time with the Lady in the harbor like Chris and Kaylin.

Where you'll be
The inside of the Statue is very limited and often sold out for weeks, but our tours always get inside! We will see the original torch of the Statue of Liberty and then when we go to the top of the pedestal, there is a spot where you can look up and see all of the inside of Lady Liberty!
