FAQ

Is this tour accessible?

This tour is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. However, it is a walking tour once we’re on the islands, and the ferry may have limited seating. If you’re worried about mobility, we recommend contacting us for a private tour to ensure you get the same great experience and can go at your own pace.

How long is the tour?

The guided portion of the tour is about 4 hours. At the end of the tour, you’ll finish with a self-guided visit to the immigration museum. You can stay for as long as you want on Ellis Island before returning by ferry. We suggest allowing 5 hours total for this experience.

Is ferry transportation included?

Yes, your ferry tickets to the islands and back from Castle Clinton at Battery Park are included with this tour.

Will our guide give a tour of the museum?

The National Park Service doesn’t allow guiding inside the Statue of Liberty Museum or the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. However, your guide will help you prepare for your visits by telling you what you’ll see and how to navigate the museums.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What about the weather?

Our tours run in all weather, and the ride to Liberty Island can be windy. Check the local forecast so you know what to wear. If we do have to cancel for severe weather conditions, we’ll let you reschedule or receive a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are never expected but always appreciated. If you think your guide did a great job on your tour, a tip is a wonderful way to let them know.
