Very enjoyable tour. If you want to tour the pedestal or crown, book your tickets weeks if not months in advance. Ellis Island museum was very interesting. Such a piece of US history. Do not skip this attraction.

Part of our trip and was worth all the effort, get there early to avoid long queues as the security is tight. Drop off at Ellis Island for more interesting things to do

It takes a long time to get through the line. About an hour or so. Getting through security was a bit of a pain. The ferry ride itself was nice and short. I just felt like the experience was a bit overrated. It didn't help it was raining a little bit, and cold. I would not do this trip again. Once was enough. We only did the grounds tour. Honestly, we were in line there and back much longer than we were on the grounds. On the way back, you make another stop at Ellis Island, so it made the trip getting back even longer. Not sure if you can pay to skip the line. Kind of doubt it. The GOOD news is - we bought a one-day NYC sightseeing pass. The line was crazy long to get on the ferry. We looked at the tickets and realized they were good for three days, so we went on the last day of our trip.

The statue and Ellis island are really good sites to visit with a lot of history behind them. Our tour guide was Jared who is very knowledgeable and a great tour guide.

We arrived at the site on a very foggy day, but it cleared up enough for us to enjoy ourselves. The staff are extremely well-informed, helpful and courteous, the museum was very interesting, and going to the crown is worth it (unless you can’t handle the stairs and a bit of claustrophobia!).
