    We did the Statue of Liberty in the Morning with Rob, and the World Trade center Museum tour in the afternoon with Tauren. Both where fantastic experiences and the tour guides where amazing. The only way it could have been better would have been to go up into the crown, but since that is not part of the tour, I can't doing them for that. We would do both tours again if we ever come back to NYC!
