  • "Tell your guide if you have a walking disability, so they came make adjustments with the timing of the tour." See review

Disappointing Tour Guide for Ellis Island
Tom_H
, Jan 2022
Unfortunately, the most memorable part of the tour was that the guide spent a lot of time on unrelated stories that took up time we could have used touring the museum and grounds. We would have appreciated more historical accounts of the island. The only reason I didn't rate it 1 star is that skipping the lines was beneficial.

Thanks for visiting with us and I'm sorry the experience wasn't what you expected. I'd like to find out more so I can address it with the guide and improve the experience for future visitors. You'll find the contact information on your voucher to get in touch with me by phone or email. Thank you.

Amazing tour, large crowds
Emily_G

Let me start by saying Marc was a phenomenal tour guide. He was knowledgeable and beyond entertaining! I would caution everyone to go during lower crowd times and seasons. We waited 1.5 hours for the return ferry from Ellis Island in 30 degree weather. This speaks nothing of the tour quality itself, but rather the experience as a whole if you don’t do your research. This tour deserves a 5 star review- the experience does not unless you are willing to wait patiently. If so, this is the tour for you!
