What to Expect

Meet for this early-access Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour at Pier A Harbor House. Spend some time visiting the nearby memorials with your guide. Then be one of the first passengers to board your ferry for the ride over to Liberty Island.

At the Statue of Liberty, take a guided tour that leads you up to the pedestal for stunning views. Your guide tells you stories along the way as you get to see the statue closer than with any other standard visit.

Hop back on the ferry for the short ride to Ellis Island. Learn all about the complicated immigration progress people went through as your guide takes you through the collection of interactive displays.

At the end of your tour, either take the ferry back to Battery Park with your guide or stay on Ellis Island to explore more before returning on your own.

Sorry, I really don't know. You might reach out to them to ask if they have departures from New Jersey. It is worth your effort to ask, it was a great tour!
