Our Story

Student Led Tours of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Since 2017


After working in Battery Park since my freshman year of high school, I've seen traditional tour operators take advantage of tourists: you would spend way too much money on an average guided tour with a boring career tour guide. 

I wanted to create a different experience.

Any tour guide you get with Annie Moore Tours is an undergraduate student at a great university. These are motivated students who put their all into everything they do. That includes your tour.


Our Mission: Annie Moore Tours is a tour operator with a focus on student-led tours of Liberty and Ellis Islands. We employ local, high-achieving college students to provide quality tours at competitive costs.

“Having a student tour guide was a completely new experience. I've been on plenty of other guided tours, and no where else had my tour guide been so youthful and engaging. I was happy to help out this student, and my son even asked about the college application process.”

“I was unsure what this tour would be like since the company is brand new, but since it was the cheapest guided tour, I gave it a shot. Boy, are we happy we did. We are from Connecticut and our tour guide was attending Yale so we told her the best places to eat. She was great and even personally emailed everyone on the tour afterwards with additional information. Take. This. Tour.”
