    We had a really nice tourguide who took care of us during the whole trip. The visit of the Statue of Libierty Museum was great. I think we got too much information on Ellis Island and the infos were too detailed - but this is only my opinion. Altoghether I would book it again.

    We spent a day with Brad who guided us around Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. We were very impressed with Brad, his knowledge and presentation was first class. Brad was passionate about his subject and this became infectious. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brad and Viatour to friends and family. Thank you

    This was fabulous! We were able to locate some relatives who entered the US through Ellis Island. As a result, we made a side trip to Capranica, Italy, the city from which they were from when we were in Italy a week later. Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. She dreams to be on the stage someday and she made the tour so alive with her presentation! :
