Tour Information

Tour Details


Take the express route to the new National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City on a one-day hop-on-hop-off cruise through New York Harbor. Your hop-on hop-off ticket is valid for one day and includes timed admission to the 9/11 Museum, located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum, containing over 100,000 square feet of exhibition space, tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts. Intimate stories of loss, compassion and recovery are presented and the lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks commemorated.

Outside you will find the twin reflecting pools of the 9/11 Memorial, inscribed with the names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the terror attacks. The reflecting pools, nearly an acre in size, feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America and sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood.

  • 9/11 museum portion of tour which I paid for was not available until late in the day even though I was there to check in for boat trip before first boat of the day.

    It was deceptive of Viator to sell this to me as being available.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We were lucky with a warm, beautiful day in November. The ferry was comfortable and spacious. 9/11 Museum is a definite must see but very emotional.

  • Everyone should see this amazing exhibit!

  • This tour was not worth the money charged by
    viator. The boat trip was okay, but you could hardly hear the tour guide over the voices of the tourists, as he described the scenes. The computers were down when we arrived at the pier, so we had to pay for our 911 Museum tickets twice. Stop 3 was not available.

  • The tour was really good! I definitely recommend it. The tour guide gave us lots of information and the photo opportunities at the Statue of Liberty were really good!

  • Me and my two adult sons did this tour in January. Believe it or not we actually had great weather. A tad cold, but a beautiful, sunny day! Purchased through TripAdvisor for a very fair price we felt like we couldn't go wrong. Starting at pier 79. The ticket agents were extremely helpful as the tickets say accepts e-ticket we didn't print our tickets out. Be sure to go to the ticket booth upon arrival to exchange your vouchers for actual tickets.I recommend printing your vouchers ahead of time as they want the printed copies. They took a picture of the voucher from their personal cell phone since at that point we had no way to print. The water taxi was a typical water taxi, nothing fancy, but it was comfortable and not crowded. The guide was knowledgeable and pointed out landmarks along the way, she was helpful in letting people know what was at each stop. We exited at the 911 Memorial with plans to do the memorial museum and come back to the Taxi for more touring however we loved the 911 Memorial, museum and surrounding area so much we actually spent the rest of our day there. The museum is a beautiful tribute to the people and the families that lost lives and had lives changed forever on September 11. It's obviously a very somber place. A time for reflection. The volunteers at the museum are also very knowledgeable and helpful. I also recommend going to the top of the 1 World Trade Center!

  • The 911 museum visit made the day! Each ferry crew was exceptional.

  • Great way to see the highlights of the city if you have limited time.
    The 9/11 museum is a must if you are visiting New York but you will need at least 2 1/2 hours to see it all.

  • Enjoyed the opportunity see many sights throughout the day - the 9/11 museum and memorial, Wall Street area, Brooklyn Bridge, and Statue of Liberty. The boats were always on time, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
