Full description
Meet your guide at Battery Park and enjoy Reserved Timed priority boarding for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty on this program. Designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, the iconic copper Statue was built by Gustave Eiffel. Dedicated on 28 October 1886, it was a gift to the United States from the people of France. Continue to Ellis Island, home to a federal immigration station that opened in 1892 and continued operations for more than 60 years before closing in 1954. Millions of immigrants passed through the station during that period. It is thought that at least 40 per cent of all current United States citizens can trace one or more of their ancestors to Ellis Island. After returning to Battery Park, you’ll visit the National September 11 Memorial, the principal monument commemorating the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 that killed 2,507 civilians, 72 law enforcement officers, 343 firefighters, and 55 military personnel. The memorial is located at the former site of the Twin Towers, which collapsed on the day of the attacks. Your guide will escort you to the elevator line skipping the long ticket window line and leave you to enjoy the observation deck of the famous One World Trade located in the Freedom Towers. You will experience an amazing video as you board the high-speed elevators with surprising 360-degree video. As the elevator door opens, you will see the most breathtaking view of the NYC skyline, the Bridges and the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

We didn’t have a guide

Late for scheduled world trade observatory

Our private guide didn’t get us to the World trade observatory until 4:40. Our tickets were schedule for 3pm. We were denied entry. I’m not sure why the tour company books a scheduled time that they can not ensure you will be there at. We lost our $ for the tickets. And the private tour was very expensive. It was disappointing end to our tour.
