My wife and I attended a tour to Liberty Island and Ellis Island with a tour guide named Nicola. He was really easy to talk and relate to. He was warm, welcoming, professional, and informative. He also added his our personal touch to the tour which made it even better. Nicola took all of our pictures on our phones and pretty much accommodated any request we made. We would definitely request him if we made another tour here.

Had a fantastic visit and the weather was brilliant considering the time date of out visit. Our group size was about right and our guide (Chris) was excellent. He had an excellent attitude and an appropriate sense of humour. He was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about what we were seeing and answered our questions well and engaged in conversation that helped to make the trip that much better. Would recomend this trip.
