    Our tour guide Ross was very informative. If you are wanting to go up onto the Statue of Liberty’s pedestal, make sure it is included. I wish we had more time allotted at Ellis Island, however, as it was the end of the tour we, our guide asked us to let him know if we wished to stay which we did. I thought there would have been more artifacts at Ellis Island instead of photos, but thoroughly enjoyed walking through the immigrant experience. The museum at the Statue if Liberty was fantastic.
