What you can expect
Explore 3 of NYC's most historically significant sites on this tour with express transportation from Midtown. Enjoy the city sights on your way to Battery Park, where you board the ferry for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Afterward, take a short walk to reach the moving 9/11 Memorial.
Hop aboard your bus on 37th Street and get whisked down the island, passing landmarks like the Flatiron Building on the way to Battery Park. When you arrive, meet your guide and gain priority access to the Statue of Liberty Ferry. Enjoy the brief ride across sparkling New York Harbor while looking out on the city skyline.
After disembarking at Liberty Island, listen as your guide explains the history of the neoclassical sculpture, gifted from France in 1885. Gain insight into the symbolism of the statue's features, and then take time to look for souvenirs in the gift shop.
Continue on to Ellis Island to see the station through which millions of immigrants passed between 1892 and 1954. Discover your own family's immigration story, explore the database of arrival records, and pay your respects at the Wall of Honor before catching the return ferry.
End the day with a powerful visit to the 9/11 Memorial, just a short walk down Wall Street. Survey the square pools constructed where the Twin Towers stood, and remember the civilians, firefighters, and law enforcement officers who lost their lives during the tragic 2001 attack before boarding the bus back to midtown.
