This exclusive NYCVP walking and sightseeing tour combines the highlights of the STATUE OF LIBERTY SIGHTSEEING TOUR and the ORIGINAL HISTORICAL WALKING TOUR OF LOWER MANHATTAN.

Two of the most visited sites in New York City are the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero, the site of the former World Trade Center Twin Towers. However most visitors are unaware that only a limited few are allowed inside the Statue of Liberty - reservations are necessary and difficult to obtain.

This tour not only gets you inside Lady Liberty, but it also provides an in-depth visit to the scene of tragedy and heroism at Ground Zero where you can walk the floor of the former site of the World Trade Center.

This educational tour is hosted and escorted by an experienced, licensed New York City tour guide who knows the area well.
