Tour time cut in half due to tech issues

While our tour guide, Daniel, was friendly and very knowledgeable the tour time was cut almost in half by delays in them delivering electronic tickets to some group members. Therefore we were all delayed boarding our ferry and getting to Liberty Island. Again, good tour guide but we lost valuable time due to tech glitches.

Alex, the guide, works four jobs to pay rent in NYC. Appears his different jobs compliment one another making him a wonderful guide. A teacher, music instructor, church cantor and guide.

, Dec 2021
Seeing the State of Liberty up close for the first time was such a powerful experience I will never forget, & having the opportunity to visit Ellis Island, where my grandmother & great-grandmother came to America from Italy was so incredibly poignant. Our tour guide, Tim, was fabulous! He was extremely knowledgeable & shared so many interesting & poignant facts with us. It was a truly amazing experience.
