Tour was fine - could have done less with out guides snarky comments about the United States and clearly left leaning politics while touring the Statue of Liberty of all places. Just wanted some history not opinions-

Our tour was amazing thanks to our tour guide James. It was a cold, rainy day and he expertly navigated us through the crowds and the weather all while making us laugh and providing a very informative tour. The tour was very thoughtfully laid out with just the right amount of information and time to explore. We highly recommend James as your tour guide for the Statue of Liberty, you will not be disappointed!

Great
Excellent tour and guide! Informative and passionate. The security process was a bit cumbersome, but out of anyones control as it was new. Definitely not a lot of walking on this tour, but prepare for plenty of standing and dress warmer than you think as you will be in the elements for most of the tour. Enjoyed that we had free time to explore each site on our own.
