Highlights

See the icons in a New York minute! If you’re looking for an overview of Manhattan, our Classic Ticket + Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry is the perfect choice. See Manhattan's top landmarks on our Downtown and Uptown bus tour loops. In addition, this combo includes a Ferry Ticket to the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island.

Explore Downtown

Take a bite of the Big Apple on our red route

Get to the beating heart of NYC on our Explore Downtown route. You'll be right in the midst of it as you travel through iconic areas like Times Square, 5th Avenue, Broadway and Wall Street. Look up to see the city's famous skyscrapers, and enjoy fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the Westside Highway.

Ferry to Liberty & Ellis Islands

See the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

A trip to New York wouldn't be complete without visiting the world-famous Statue of Liberty National Monument, and historic Ellis Island (home to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum). T&Cs: The Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry operates from 8:30am to 4:00pm with regular departures from Battery Park. You will need to redeem your ticket voucher with a Big Bus Tours staff member before heading to the ferry terminal. On arrival you will need to pass through a security checkpoint before boarding the ferry, but do not join this line without first retrieving your ferry ticket. Please allow 30 minutes prior to boarding for this security check. This ticket includes a ferry journey to both Liberty Island and Ellis Island, but not interior monument or museum access. Please note that our retail price includes an USD$2.00 per person transaction fee.

Discover the cultural capital of Manhattan on our Explore Uptown route. We pass some of the must-see museums, galleries and theaters, from the Met to Madison Square Garden. Take in the sights of Central Park and Madison Avenue, and enjoy top-deck views of the hustle and bustle of Times Square. Bring Manhattan to life with educational commentary, giving you an insider's perspective on the city that never sleeps.
