Tour the Statue of Liberty & The High Line with ExperienceFirst NYC

Walk the greatest city in the world with ExperienceFirst New York! Experience First, or EXP1, provides engaging, comprehensive walking tours throughout NYC. Rated the #1 Cultural Experience Globally on TripAdvisor in 2018, this touring service has satellites in Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Paris. Whether you’re looking for a head-first plunge into the city’s beloved attractions or an in-depth look into one of New York’s iconic neighborhoods, EXP1 has the walking tour you’ve been waiting for. 

EXP1 Tours

Check out EXP1’s Statue of Liberty packages for an up-close look at the city’s most treasured landmark. ExperienceFirst sends you, your group, and trained tour guide on the Statue Cruises ferry to explore Liberty Island.

Ellis Island

With ExperienceFirst, you can pair your Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island experiences, access the statue’s pedestal, and explore the museums on both islands for just $57 per person (includes ferry tickets). The Express Statue of Liberty tour, on the other hand, takes just 3 hours and allows optional, self-guided access to the National Museum of Immigration at Ellis Island. 

EXP1’s Lower Manhattan tour includes the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, along with the Financial District and the 9/11 Memorial. Walk in the footsteps of the Founding Fathers, and take a picture with the bull on Wall Street. (This neighborhood is the company’s original area of expertise, since ExperienceFirst began as Andrew Luan’s Wall Street Experience.)

See the city’s best in one day with the immersive One Day New York City Tour. You’ll view the bright lights of Broadway and Times Square, the historic Grand Central Terminal, and the city’s highest skyscraper at One World Observatory (with an upgrade) during this half-day extravaganza. Your knowledgeable guide will take you on this dynamic day in the city via walking, subway, and the Staten Island Ferry. If you’ve never been to New York—or you want to know more about its most notable spots—take this big bite out of the Big Apple. 

ExperienceFirst’s neighborhood tours include fascinating facts—and sometimes food—from the most exciting, diverse parts of the city. The Broadway and Times Square tour leads you along the Great White Way under the guidance of an industry professional. Book a walking tour of artsy Greenwich Village; a combined tour of Soho, Chinatown, and Little Italy; or a stroll through Chelsea and its beautiful High Line Park. 

Stonewall Inn

EXP1 also hosts a Pride Tour, with stops by the Stonewall Inn and other notable places in the historic LGBTQ movement. Manhattan’s newest neighborhood, Hudson Yards, is also available for walking tours, which include a trip to the top of The Vessel. 

ExperienceFirst hosts tours between 8:30am and 4pm, 7 days a week. The company also hosts private and custom tours for groups, corporate events, and more. Click the link below to begin the booking process for your special ExperienceFirst tour of the city.
