Description

Take New York by storm as you visit three of its most popular attractions! The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the 9/11 Memorial.

Start off the tour by meeting up with your guide at Battery Park where you will be boarding one of the first boats going to Liberty Island. As you sail through the waters to the island, admire the scenic view of your surroundings and get to know your guide as you go along. Once you have reached the island, admire the beauty of the Statue of Liberty. Enjoy special access to the pedestal as your guide tells you all about the statue's history.

After a visit to the statue, come aboard once again on the ferry to visit Ellis Island. Trace the steps of over 12 million immigrants who have passed here. Climb the famous Stairs of Separation and learn why it had gained its name. Enjoy 2.5 to 3 hours of free time for lunch and sightseeing before you head back to the city for a tour of the 9/11 Memorial.

After being transported back to the city, begin the 9/11 tour by starting at the St. Paul's Chapel, a chapel that was miraculously unharmed by the catastrophe. This chapel was where the friends and families of the victims hung handmade card, pictures, prayers, and memorabilia to find or commemorate the missing victims.

Next, come to the Brookfield Place or the World Financial Center where you can learn about the economic effects that came after the attack. See the Eleven Tears Memorial which commemorates the sad fate of the 11 American Express employees who became victims of the attack. Admire the newly reconstructed Winter Garden Atrium nearby.

Visit the 9/11 Memorial and the two Memorial Pools that had been built in place of the footprints of the original buildings. See the Survivor Tree, a famous tree which had survived the aftermath of the tragic event.

Lastly, visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum, which showcases the artifacts that were salvaged from the time of the attack. These artifacts include the personal belongings of the victims from the buildings and from the plane, an elevator motor, the remnants of a fire truck, passenger belongings from the American Airline plane, a bicycle stand, a window from one of the planes, and so much more. Hear about personal stories coming from the endless videos being played inside the museum. Your tickets are pre-reserved and will allow you to avoid long queues.
