Welcome to one of the world's most famous and the most visited sights of all time, the Statue of Liberty. The symbol of freedom for all nations and a welcoming monument for millions around the world, "Liberty Enlightening The World" is truly a must-see attraction in New York City.
This fantastic self-guided audio tour offers an unforgettable historical experience, giving you an insight into what it was to be an immigrant in America one hundred years ago and what it took to start a new life in America.
Thу tour has two different parts: the first is the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Island Grounds with a museum, and the second one is the Ellis Island Museum of Immigration located on nearby Ellis Island. You will get to Liberty Island from Manhattan's Battery Park via ferry with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. The same ferry will take you later to Ellis Island, and you will have comprehensive audio guidance throughout the whole journey, from start to finish.
The Ellis Island Museum tells the story of more than 12 million immigrants that entered America between 1886 and 1924 through New York and how the Statue of Liberty was a reassuring sign that they had arrived in the "promised land".
On this tour, you will learn not only about the history of the statue itself, its creation, and its meaning but also about the fate of millions of people from the 19th century to these days who fled their countries of origin to live their very own American dream.
