    Patrick was a great tour guide and really well informed on the history of all the islands (Liberty, Ellis, all the boroughs). I’m a New York native and I learned some new information on the tour. He took great photos of the group. This was my birthday celebration and I had a wonderful time. Thanks Patrick!

    The tour to Liberty Island takes three hours and includes the Liberty Museum and a walk up to the top of the pedestal. The wait for security is long - at least it was on the saturday morning that we went, but shorter if you're on the tour, rather than walking up. The guide Marc Landman, was excellent, funny, informative and also very organized in describing what would be coming next and keeping the group together. He had a lot of background information on history related to the Statue of Liberty and the surroundings.

    Jim was a terrific tour guide, funny, kept us involved with questions and jokes. He even laid on his back to take our pictures with Lady Liberty. Good history lessons. Didn’t think the expense to get to the pedestal was worth it. Many steps to climb (although there is an elevator if one needed it) and not much room to move about when you get up there. Our grandchildren (16, 11, 10, & 9) enjoyed it. Ellis Island is a place I’d like to spend more time.
