Organization and ease was nice. Guide started out strong but then appeared to rush at end. Mentioned things he would go over more in detail later but then didn’t. He was not aware of all security protocols. We had pocket knife but he was adamant we could not take thru security and needed to hide in bush, but there were multiple items that were allowed including our knife, and the only line you skip would be to purchase tickets, but still wait in line for security and seating on Ferry.

Chris Tipp was amazing (his dad jokes are on point). He does a great job of sharing information in a fun and personal way, in a casual conversation, vs. just rattling of dates and events. He was eager to answer all the questions and even emailed me directly the answer to a question my child asked that he didn't have at the time. He took time to take pictures of each of the family's, individually, in front of the Statue of Liberty.

Very educational tour, worthwhile even though we were not able to tour the base or statue itself. All this time I thought the Statue of Liberty was on Ellis Island. Appreciate Brian’s personal touch, also willingness to take photos of all the tour families!
