Experience the historic & fascinating New York
There is no more famous site in New York City than the Statue of Liberty. My own parents speak of the day they sailed into the New York Harbor and past the Statue of Liberty and then. . . Ellis Island, the Immigration Center back in the day.
NOTES OF INTEREST:
1. Your Guide's Family Name is inscribed on the Wall of Immigrants; which I will proudly show you!
2. You sail from Battery Park over Libwrty & Ellis Islands.
3. The return trip to the City is a photographers dream as the BEST pictures can be taken from the harbor.
I GUARANTEE that you will thoroughly enjoy this private tour!
You will be met at your Manhattan Hotel or at another convenient location by your experienced, Licensed New York City Tour Guide whose own parents entered America via New York City; experiencing first hand being greeted by the Statue of Liberty and having the 'immigrant experience'. Their story and that of others is woven into the story of these islands, Liberty Island and Ellis Island.
You will board the Ferry at Battery Park with your Guide and after a short trip on the Bay of New York, you will set foot upon Liberty Island. You will get up close and personal to the Statue of Liberty! The pictures will be awesome. Then back on the Ferry to Ellis Island to see the Immigrant Story and hear of it from the son of immigrants to America. The displays and rooms are very moving and fascinating. You may wish to enjoy refreshments at the Cafe and sit right in the Immigrants Dining Hall before your return to the City.
Your tour ends seeing Macy's - the world's largest department store and Madison Square Gardens.

Remo was fantastic! The weather was bad and he worked so very hard to show us things that kept us warm and dry as much as possible and use our limited time as effectively as possible! Then, when the ferry canceled due to weather, he helped guide us through the rescheduling process with ease. Our group cannot recommend him enough. All were happy to get his business card for future trips!
