You will begin your tour at Castle Clinton, a former Fort in Battery Park, where you will board the ferry to the famous Liberty Island. Along the way, you will learn about the remarkable history of the Statue of Liberty, as well as its significance to modern America. From here you will also be able to enjoy a breathtaking view over the Manhattan skylines and harbor.

Boarding at Liberty Island, you will hear all about the fascinating history of the Liberty figure, and how this 100th birthday gift to America from France was shipped from Paris to New York, and finally unveiled after 10 years of construction in 1886\. You will also pay a visit to the fascinating Pedestal Museum, where you will be able to venture to the top of Lady Liberty’s pedestal for a perfect view over the harbor.

**Built on Immigration**

It is estimated that forty percent of the entire US population can trace at least one relative's arrival to the US, through the port of New York and Ellis Island. At Ellis Island you will discover the many extraordinary stories of families journeying to New York City since the earliest days of the United States founding. At the museum, your expert local guide will talk you through some of the exhibits on display. You will also have time to properly enjoy the museum at your own pace, as you immerse yourself in a similar journey to that of a newly arrived person.
