Overview
No trip to New York City is complete without visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, though arranging an itinerary to see both in one day can be a hassle. Avoid the stress with this combo tour, where you visit both sights for one low price. Just hop on the ferry as you're whisked to Liberty and Ellis Islands. Highlights include the audio tours, optional guided tour upgrade—and of course—seeing Lady Liberty up close.

I booked my trip in December for a April cruise and Statue of Liberty crown visit. My trip was canceled due to COVID. I submitted a refund request in April and followed up two months later with an email. I am happy to report that I got a full refund today on my credit card.

I recently gave them a bad rating because I wasn't sure if they were going to sincerely give me a refund. After 3 mths, I finally got it today. So, I would like to change my rating and say this is a trustworthy company.
