  • Les organisateurs ne nous retrouvaient pas dans leurs listes mais avec nos bons d echange ... ils nous ont inclus dans un groupe apres une demie heure d attente. La visite vaut le detour. Le musee est vraiment a faire et la statue de la Liberte est exceptionnelle. Seul regret , le billet n inclus pas la promenade autour de la statue.

  • Superbe visite à ne pas manquer. Amy notre guide a adapté son phrasé pour nous français. Il faut plus de 4h. Plutôt 5.
