Important!  As of July 1st, 2021 the National Park Service and Statue Cruises (Hornblower) halted all tour companies from purchasing pedestal tickets to the Statue of Liberty.

    Top Dog’s Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour exceeded all my expectations. The amount of historical knowledge the guide displayed was impressive and I even learned a thing or two. The guides’ personal stories of their own family on Ellis Island, combined with all the private access to the Statue of Liberty, made for a truly unforgettable experience!

    Informative and entertaining tour of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
    This is the third time I have been to New York but I've never visited the Statue of Liberty. As I was travelling with my family we decided to try this trip and we were so glad we did. Joel, our host and guide was excellent. He was friendly, knowledgable and answered all our questions and not just about this subject. He pointed out places of interest whilst on the ferry and even recommended a brilliant eatery on Stone Street which we enjoyed after the tour. Couldn't have asked for more, it was obvious Joel enjoyed his job and was very engaged. We had booked the small group tour but as we were the only party we ended up having a private tour! It was very well organised. We followed directions to the meeting point and Joel was there to greet us with our tickets and lead us seamlessly through security checks and onto the ferries, which were all perfectly timed. I would highly recommend TopDogTours, we have tried other companies but all agreed that this was the most informative and well organised.
