- One of the highest rated Statue experiences available
- All guides have family that passed through Ellis Island
The Statue of Liberty is, for many people, the ultimate symbol not only of New York, but the United States. When new immigrants arrived by boat into the harbour, Lady Liberty was the first thing they saw, a symbol of hope and freedom for those leaving behind oppression and danger. Then, for over 60 years until 1954, all newly arrived immigrants were processed on nearby Ellis Island, millions of people passed through over the years. So a private tour of Liberty Island and Ellis Island is definitely one of the must-do New York experiences.
On this tour you will be accompanied by a professional guide related to people that came through Ellis Island in the past, allowing them to share very personal stories and memories. You’ll learn the history of American immigration, and how people from all over the world have shaped the country’s culture, making it stronger in every way. Perhaps you yourself have a family member that may have arrived in the US this way: this, of course, is the perfect opportunity to find details of their arrival.
