Small-Group Early-Access Statue of Liberty Tour and Ellis Island

See New York City's most famous lady, the Statue of Liberty, like a VIP on a guided tour that includes special access to the statue pedestal. You'll take an early ferry to Liberty Island without waiting in lines that can stretch for hours, and arrive before the crowds. Then take another ferry to Ellis Island, following in the footsteps of millions of immigrants, and make the most of this experience with a tour of the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, where you can walk the Stairs of Separation, visit the Kissing Post, and hear personal tales at the American Immigrant Wall of Honor.
