NEW YORK - April 12, 2018 - PRLog -- Governors Island was a recruitment depot during the Civil War, and a planning station for the D-Day invasion of World War II. When it was an army headquarters, enlisted men lived there with their families, and then the Coast Guard took over in the 1960s. The island has served many purposes—mostly military—but now it's a 172-acre oasis that sits just 800 yards away from Lower Manhattan. It's the ultimate urban escape. Pack a lunch and hop on the ferry to laze away an entire summer day, and be back in the city with plenty of time to make your evening plans.

One of the most asked questions we receive at TopDogTours when giving our Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour is; "What island is over there?" "What's there?"

Governors Island is open every day from May 1 – October 31. Come take our Historic Downtown tour or Statue of Liberty tour and then spend the rest of your day visiting this unique island in our harbor.

An Extraordinary Experience at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
"My wife and I used TopDog Tours for a private tour of the Statue of Liberty and of Ellis Island in early November. We had a wonderful experience with Sean, our tour guide, and we would readily book with TopDog again.With TopDog tours you never stand in line for tickets, and your tour guide gets you on and off the ferry boats with maximum efficiency. While one might argue that the essential information on the Statue of Liberty is provided by the displays in the museum, one really needs a guide for the sprawling complex of rooms at Ellis Island." - Danny S. from NY

Small group tour Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with Victoria - Fun and well worth it!
"Victoria, our tour guide for this small group tour of both the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, was waiting for us, two couples, with the tickets at the established location at Battery Park. Everything was incredibly well-organized and hassle-free with no line ups due to prioritized boarding onto the ferry. Victoria was enthusiastic and really made the 4 hour tour fun-filled with her knowledge of the history of these sites, sprinkled in with interesting little known facts! If you can , please make sure to get Victoria as your TopDogTour guide ... you will have a grand time! This trip was one of our highlights of our NYC visit." - Steve H. from OR
