Description

from Statue Express Tour with Statue of Liberty Pedestal Tickets
If you want to see the Statue of Liberty but you aren’t interested in getting up early to catch the first boat over to Liberty Island, this relaxed afternoon visit is the one for you. Traveling with a group of 20 and an expert guide, you’ll enjoy a leisurely boat ride and a full tour of Liberty Island and the Statue, including special, pre-reserved access to the statue pedestal.

Your tour starts at 1:00 pm when you meet your expert guide in battery park and take in iconic buildings like Castle Clinton (America’s first immigration station) and the Pier A Harbor House before hopping a ferry out to the Statue of Liberty. When you arrive on the Island, you’ll dive into the story of how the statue came to be and why it almost wasn’t built at all. Inside the statue museum, you’ll see artifacts from its construction that tell the story of one man’s monumental dream and how the entire city (eventually) came together to help him realize it.

Then, it’s up to the statue pedestal. There are 215 steps up through the Statue’s base but each one is worth it when you step out onto the pedestal and bask in the commanding views of the New York Harbor and lower Manhattan. From up here, it’s not hard to see how this statue became a beacon of hope for so many people.

After the pedestal, you’ll board the ferry again and be back in Battery Park by 4:00 pm. In just three hours, you’ll have seen the Statue and learned its story from an expert guide; no early wake-up calls, no waiting in line, just easy, intimate access to America’s most iconic monument.

Jerry was wonderful - so informative, high energy. Paying a little extra for this experience (vs the radio tour) was worth every penny. We learned a lot and highly recommend.
