Any trip to New York City must include a boat cruise around the Statue of Liberty. This iconic landmark has stood in the city that never sleeps for more than 100 years, and its installation was a joint effort between America and France to celebrate the anniversary of America’s independence. When you book an NYC Statue of Liberty tour with us, you’ll get an unforgettable view of this iconic New York City landmark from the water.
Lady Liberty weighs an amazing 225 tons, stands at 305 feet and 6 inches, and would wear a size 879 shoe. In the late 19th and early 20th century, she welcomed millions of European immigrants to the land of opportunity as they entered New York Harbor. Since her installation in 1886, she has represented freedom and enlightenment for all who have fallen under her shadow.
