Great job!

Had limited time to visit in NYC with family and love American history! Was able to get up close with a great guide and access to Statue when other options were sold out and long lines. Also able to get fast tracked through most every line.... less lunch! Learned much and was able to get to see other attractions thanks to maximizing time. Worth the additional cost and guide made it memorable and educational.

Well worth it! Fantastic guide and tour!

Emmanuel Hadar was our tour guide and he was fantastic! So knowledgeable and personable, he made the wait times informative and interesting. Getting Amigo Tours was a great investment. Huge lines but not for us, much, MUCH shorter wait times with the tour. If we ever make it back to NYC, we will definitely seek out Amigo Tours again.

If you can... get the guided tour!

When I booked I did not know that I was getting a guided tour. When we arrived at the meeting place, I was greeted by Joey.... he told us that he would be our tour guide for the next 4 hours . And even better it was just 4 of us. Joey was very informative, and took his time with us. Answered all our questions. Even took pictures for us! Loved the Statue of Liberty ( the rain didn’t keep us for going out on the pedestal ) off to Ellis Island and even helped us find our great great grandparents on the memorial wall. Thank you Joey for the wonderful tour!!!
