We toured the Statue of Liberty yesterday with Esther (from Sweden). She was a great tour host and we thought the tour was well worth it. Thank you so much. I do have 1 recommendation on telling people where to meet up. Adding a sentence about a tour guide holding a (specific) sign will meet you at the (location specified). When we arrived at the location, there were a bunch of people directing tourists. I showed one man my phone confirmation and he told me to get in the 2.5 hour long line. Thank goodness I called your phone number and Daron told me which specific person holding a sign to look for. (She wasn’t there yet because we were 25 min early). Thanks again.

Loved it, we had a great time!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and very sweet. We really enjoyed having her. The guy from the initial meeting point was very nice as well. Overall, we were glad we purchased our tickets through this company. We will definitely use this company again the next time we're in town. Thanks so much for all your professionalism and speedy responses when I messed up the ticket dates! -Mari

It is very important that you understand that you will be on the same boat with all the other people going to Liberty Island. THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE EVENT. This is just having a person along there with you and the few others to tell you historical information. Our tour guide was nice enough, but I felt swindled by what seamed like misrepresentation. Do not go in the heat of the summer. After going through security, We waited in line for at least an hour, surrounded by hundreds of others. My daughter almost passed out from heat stroke and claustrophobia. If I had to do it over I’d just order tickets online and do some google research on my own and save a lot of $. And go during cooler temperatures. We really had a horrible day. I am not an unhappy person who complains a lot. Just feel it is very important to say that the advertisement is misleading and therefore the reality was a huge disappointment.
