Statue by Night is truly a magnificent way to experience the Statue of Liberty! This narrated tour aboard one of our iconic Water Taxis will cruise past the majestic skyscrapers of downtown Manhattan, and as the sun falls to the west arrive at Lady Liberty. Here there will be ample time to capture one-of-a-kind photos and take in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. To help celebrate we’ll provide a complimentary champagne toast (for those 21 or over with a valid ID)! Whether it’s a romantic evening, a family excursion, or just old-fashioned sightseeing, this experience will surely not disappoint!

Comments aboutSmart Destinations :
Beautiful views especially as the lights of the city started to come on at dusk. You get to be close to Lady Liberty as the torch turns on while they play "God Bless the USA." Evoked a lot of emotions and yes it brought tears to many eyes.
The guides are great. They are very informative, entertaining, and kept us laughing most of the time. They keep it family friendly and spend a fair amount of time talking to the kids.
It does get chilly on the water, even in June, when the sun goes down. If sitting on top, bring a light jacket or sweater.
