Your Tour Experience
Get an early start to your day with a visit to Battery Park and board one-of-the-first boats of the day to Liberty Island. Once on the island, you can see the Great Lady of NYC in all her immense glory. Your tour also allows you statue pedestal access, letting you get closer to the majestic Statue of Liberty. From here you’ll move onto Ellis Island where you will visit the immigration center and museum. Walk the ‘Stairs of Separation’ and feel the excitement of 12 million individuals who ventured into the land of the free.
This is the end of the first leg of your tour. The second part is a tour of Lower Manhattan and the surrounding areas. Start off your second leg with a visit to the 9/11 memorable sights. Visit the One World Tower, a testament to the city that was knocked down. Learn about the happenings in the city from your guide and get insights into the mood of the city in such a turbulent time. After this, you will visit St.Paul’s Cathedral to see the majestic glory it beholds.
The highlight of your tour comes at the end with a visit to the brand new One World Observatory. With pre-reserved tickets, your visit is guaranteed to go ahead regardless of the how large the crowds are. There’s not much explanation needed here so your guide will leave you for an independent visit.
Inside the lobby, you’ll find videos about the production of this incredible structure - said to be the strongest in the world - and of the men and women who built it. Then board a ‘skypod’ to travel through time and space. Created in association with Universal Studios, the special ‘skypod’ elevators are covered inside in LCD screens, on which you’ll watch the changing face of New York from the 1600s to today while ascending 102 floors in just 42 seconds. Disembark at the top of One World Tower for incredible panoramic views of NYC. What better way to end a day of looking back with a glance into the future.
