What to expect

Explore two of the greatest American landmarks on this 3-hour private guided tour. Follow your expert guide on a walk-through at a time when the US embraced immigration more than ever. On this tour, you'll discover New York's first immigration center, Castle Garden Immigration Station, which operated until Ellis Island opened.

You'll then cruise on a ferry to visit Liberty Island where the Statue of Liberty keeps an eye on incoming ships. You’ll learn all about Fort Wood, which now acts as the base for the statue, offered to the US by France in 1886.
Head over to Ellis Island, a place where millions of European newcomers first set foot on US soil.

Get a sobering experience at the separation stairs or the excitement at the kissing post where families’ lives changed forever. Finally, you'll visit the Wall of Honor, where you too could search for your family’s name among the 700,000 names commemorating those who entered the United States here. This tour is the ideal way to remember, and celebrate, the immigrants that contributed so much to America’s success.
