About Tom  Bernardin



Standard Ellis Island Tour  

Group Tours
If you are coming with a group and wish to schedule a tour, please contact me! I offer group tours seven days a week. If your group is large, I would be happy to break the group into smaller groups and give back-to-back tours. I would also be happy to advise you on additional activities at Ellis, transportation, and food options. Part of the service I provide is to advise you as to how to make your event at Ellis the most rewarding possible. For Groups Tours, please contact Tom directly at 212-229-0202 or email him at ellisbook@aol.com

Tours for individuals are offered.
Private tours can be arranged by calling Tom Bernardin directly at 212-229-0202 or via email at ellisbook@aol.com .
