Tour Operator & Group Planning

Plan Your Ultimate Group Tour Experience

Tour and Travel Operators

For tour operators, wholesalers and sightseeing companies offering tours of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island, who would like to bring a group, please review the following information.

Required Supervision: If you will be bringing a youth group to visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island, we require one adult leader (age 21 years or older) for every 10 youths. Chaperones must remain with the group at all times. Visitors who are 18-20 years old do not qualify as chaperones.

If you are an educational tour & travel company or will be bringing a youth group, you may qualify for the discounted student rate. The discounted rate is only available for purchase through our group sales department. It is not available online. In order to verify legitimate school group status and qualify for the rate, you must either demonstrate membership in an educational travel industry association or provide a letter from each school detailing the trip date and number of students. The discounted rate does not apply to students beyond their senior year of high school and is not available in July and August.

Please note that the time you choose is the approximate time you will be entering the Screening Facility and not the vessel departure time. We recommend that you travel lightly. All persons and property are subject to search.

To submit a request, please follow the instructions below and the group sales department will email an invoice and payment instructions within 5 business days.
