Really good day out, the tour was well worth doing. The tour guide was very knowledgable and it was a pleasure to learn so much about New York. Great way to get some fantastic pictures. Well worth a visit

If you have time you must climb to the crown, but will need to pre book a few months before visit. There are plenty of steps up a spiral staircase so will need to be fairly mobile!

Seems smaller than I remembered from years ago, but still impressive. Have to go through security twice, but there is a place to leave your bags-for a fee. Moving and interesting history.

No chance. If you only have 3 hours in NYC there is a cruise around the statue that you can book but this is all you will be able to do. I would spend your time in the city - plenty to see - maybe a bus tour ?

I used the system where you select a time and purchased ferry and pedestal tickets on line. No problems.
